ALL MTU ONSITE ENERGY GENERATOR SETS ARE MOUNTED ON A SKID-BASE ASSEMBLY THAT PROVIDES STRUCTURAL INTEGRITY AND A DEGREE OF VIBRATION ISOLATION.
Vibration isolators can be added to provide an additional level of protection from noise and vibration damage.
Stationary components that are connected to the generator set must be flexible in order to absorb the vibration movement and to prevent damage.
Seismically certified emergency standby power systems are required in order to ensure power is available after a catastrophic event, such as an earthquake or hurricane.
Certain provisions of the International Building Code (IBC) govern the certification and installation of emergency standby power systems used in locations that are seismically active or are subject to high wind loading of up to 150 mph. As such, the IBC has set seismic design and testing standards for the manufacturers of emergency standby power systems to withstand seismic loads and to function after an emergency situation.
MTU Onsite Energy generator sets are certified at the manufacturing level for installations subject to IBC provisions.
