JS Power visited customers site to inspect their commercial diesel generator, it was difficult to tell how many hours the generator had carried out due to a faulty reading panel. The following faults were diagnosed:

Fault on Control Panel
Flat Batteries

It was decided after a full discussion with the client that a refurbishment of the generator would be the best option to ensure the generator could operate efficiently when required and within its engines capacity. Replacement of the faulty SDMO control panel and batteries helped this 17-year-old generator spring back to life. Once up and running a full major service was carried out. No faults were observed whilst using the thermal imaging during the load testing.
