Our extensive expertise and the high quality implementation of the means at our disposal open the way to a wide range of markets. The POWER SOLUTIONS unit is perpetually widening its experience through the great variety of applications which it enjoys.
Within the framework of a partnership with Dynaf Caribbean (long-standing SDMO distributor in Curacao), SDMO is emerging as the main provider of standby power solutions for the number one operator on the telecommunications market in the Netherlands Antilles.
Around 15 power plants have been installed in the Caribbean area. The latest installed was a 1001 kVA set (XS910SK) designed to operate in parallel with 500 kVA 2 sets already on the site. These generating sets act as standby for the national electricity supply in case of a power failure.
The SDMO set was designed especially for this use; to make the coupling of the different sets possible a specific control panel had to be designed. Installing such a control panel involved making a number of changes within the container, including changing the ventilation screen and fitting a 500 litre diesel tank.
The 3 sets were installed on a new site. The electrical installation, civil engineering and fitting of a fuel supply system were carried out by our distributor Dynaf Caribbean.

In current times, power cuts in hospitals can have serious consequences. Although such failures are not a common occurrence, they represent a risk which all healthcare institutions must be prepared for. Furthermore, to prevent all possible incidents, regulation requires all such institutions to be equipped with an autonomous and storable back-up energy source. The efforts made to meet with these obligations have resulted in the generalisation of standby generating sets in medical institutions.
Both in France and throughout the world, a large number of clinics and hospitals are equipped with SDMO generating sets, able to provide an electricity supply around the clock in the event of a mains power failure.
As part of their general and public service duties, the French Army has at its disposal SDMO multi-purpose generating sets.
Indispensable for the running of a mobile hospital or supplying support units and computer systems in military camps with electricity, our generating sets are also fitted in command vehicles, reconnaissance vehicles, personnel carriers and infantry fighting vehicles.
Did you know? In a bid to prevent terrorist attacks from hackers, large companies call upon the services of data backup companies. A US company based in London sought the services of SDMO (and more exactly our British subsidiary SDMO Energy Ltd) in order to equip its premises with generating sets to backup the mains electricity supply in case of a major power failure.
The system comprises 4 XS2500 generating sets, each supplying 2500 kVA (equivalent to 2,000 kW PRP).
These gensets, fitted with MTU 20V4000 engines, can be synchronised in pairs or all 4 together, and the system is able to easily switch from one configuration to the other. The company is now equipped with a system that guarantees the protection of and access to its IT data 24/7, 365 days a year.
The 10-week timeframe in which the installation was completed attests to the reactivity of SDMO in carrying out such tasks.

SDMO is associated with many different names in the supermarket industry around the globe, where it offers high-performance solutions adapted to the needs of this sector, in particular to prevent risks related to personal and property safety.
Shopping centres, like all public buildings, demand a near-permanent power supply. The absence of energy would have chaotic consequences and endanger people's safety.
In public buildings, human safety is ensured by the installation of systems designed in particular to reduce fire hazards and to allow the evacuation of people and the intervention of the emergency services in the event of an interruption to the usual power supply. To ensure that these systems are able to function, many supermarkets choose to use an independent source of energy: a power plant comprising generating sets used a replacement source. In this way, the risks associated with an untimely cut-off of the primary functions of such centres are prevented.
In the supermarket industry, in the event of a failure of the main electricity supply, a power cut of only a few minutes can be the source of dysfunction in many establishments: the use of cash registers, computing equipment and automatic doors for instance will be affected, and the financial stakes are high (risk of theft or vandalism in panic situations, loss of IT data, etc.)
The retailers equipped with generating sets protect themselves against the occurrence of these types of problems.
