When considering what type of generator set features and components to select for a particular application, specifying engineers probably don’t immediately think of seismic certification and wind load requirements. That is, of course, unless their project happens to be in an active seismic zone. But they should.
Few places, if any, around the globe are immune to natural disasters. Whether it is earthquakes, hurricanes, floods, volcanic eruptions, tsunamis, or anything else, they threaten the ongoing operations of any business or mission-critical facility. In turn, increased scrutiny is being placed on ensuring that standby generator sets will perform in any type of emergency situation, regardless of location.
