What Can a 1250kw Generator Run?
A 1250kw stationary engine generator can provide emergency or continuous power to run a variety of processes in a variety of environments.
For instance, a major healthcare facility in the city will need to ensure their working systems and patient care go uninterrupted during power outages.
