In power deficit areas of India, having a generator is more of a necessity than a luxury and comfort. Intermittent supply of power, electricity fluctuation, shortage of power ails every sector and region of India. While diesel generators have long been preferred by Indian consumers, the recent shift to gas powered generator is more of a holistic shift as it is considered to be less hazardous to the environment and health of the individual. Cooper Corporation is one of the largest and reputed genset manufacturing companies of India that designs and supplies generators nationally and across the globe. The gas generator may be used for a host of purposes and applications including industrial, retail, domestic homes, agriculture, marine, infrastructure, hospitality among others. Choosing a genset is however, a daunting task, considering the choices and variants that are available in the market.
We list out some of the aspects that have to be borne in mind before choosing the right generator for your use:
-Quick-start and dynamic features: hassle free ignition and quick start adds on to the efficiency of a genset. Less space occupancy, compactness, are some of the features that may be attributed to the dynamic features of gas powered generator or its diesel counterpart
-Silent technology and environment-friendly: Low decibel sound for operations attribute to the silent technology. Cooper generators are known to comply with a host of regulations that include CPCB norms, Bharat VI and Euro IV norms.
-Cost effectiveness and fuel efficiency: low fuel consumption, high fuel tank capacity attribute to the cost effectiveness of the Cooper-make generators
-Wide range of variants: Cooper diesel generators are equipped with 2 cylinder engines, 3, 4, and 6 cylinder engines with power ranging from 5 hp to 1000 hp generators
What to choose-Gas generators or DG generators
Diesel generators have long been preferred by customers worldwide. Quick start, easy availability of fuel, prompt service, being some of the criteria for choice. With the recent shift towards gas generators and availability of CNG and LPG the customer shift has been but natural. As a consumer, you may want to weigh your choices before choosing one.
Gas generators are widely perceived to be less cacophonous, more environment favourable, fuel efficient and easy to operate. The easy availability of natural gas adds on to the merit.
This however, is the case in urban cities, as rural areas may have certain challenges in consumption of gas gensets. Diesel is easily available in these areas. Power outages, intermittent power supply rates are higher, for which reason the use of diesel generators are prevalent in the present times.
The choice of diesel or gas generator depends on the application, use and functionality as well as the availability of fuel in the region. Diesel generators may cost less for the moment. Going ahead, availability of diesel may pose challenge and so may give rise to maintenance issues.
Cooper Corporation is a renowned manufacturer for both gas gensets and Diesel generators sets. Among other attributes, the generators adhere with the host of rules and regulations prescribed by the Ministry of Environmental affairs and therefore complies with the CPCB and ARAI norms. Recently, the company has got permission to develop and introduce ARAI certified generators that comply with these norms for the Indian customers. These variants area available in both diesel- and gas-powered generators. The wide use and application for Cooper generators had made it popular across India and round the globe. Moreover, its compliance with environmental regulations, compactness in design and dynamic operation are the key contributors for the overall consumption of these gensets.
