Genrep to attend North Atlantic Fish & Work Boat Show

north atlantic work and fish boat show baudouin genrep

Genrep is delighted to announce that we will be attending for the first time the North Atlantic Fish & Workboat Show in St. John’s, NL on from November 16-17,2018. Genrep has been in the Canadian marine industry for almost 15 years, and we are finally going to take a trip to the rock now that we have Sansom Equipment as our dealer. Although we are not exhibiting at this bi-annual tradeshow, we will be walking it to meet at the wonderful people that make up the Newfoundland fishing community.

The North Atlantic Fish & Workboat Show is one of Canada’s largest commercial marine events. Held on a biannual basis, it features products and services at the heart of Atlantic Canada’s marine-based industries. There are over 100 exhibitors from all corners of the industry: from fishing equipment, boats, engines, and electronics, to supplies, safety gear, fish processing equipment, and services.

Since Genrep brought Baudouin marine engines to the Canadian market we have been able to compete in markets that require bigger, stronger, tougher diesel engines. Baudouin ranges from 130HP – 1650HP in line 6 up to 800HP in mechanical or electronic options. We believe that the Newfoundland fishing industry will really like all the features of the Baudouin engine. Service entrances where you need them, IMO 3 ready 650HP and up, and backed up with a brand that is known worldwide for its incredibly long life cycle.

If there is an interest to learn more about the Baudouin product, please don’t hesitate to contact Genrep 1-877-7GNEREP and ask for Ashley Wallis. We would love to chat.

2018 marks a special milestone for the marine engine and generator manufacturer

This year, Genrep’s newest engine line, the iconic brand Moteurs Baudouin is celebrating a very special milestone: its 100-year anniversary.

From humble beginnings making petrol engines for fishing boats, it has grown into a leading force in the marine industry, globally recognised for its durable, reliable and efficient engine and power generation products.

A century ago, in 1918, Charles Baudouin set to work creating his first 5hp engine, constructed just a few meters from the Mediterranean Sea, in a small metal foundry in Marseille, France.

And in the ten decades since, the engines have become cutting edge, and the customer base has grown to include a variety of applications both at sea and on land. But one thing remains: marine is in Baudouin’s DNA.

This marine heritage lies at the heart of Baudouin’s success. In the unforgiving environment at sea, there is no room for unreliable engines. So even when used in power generation applications, customers are assured that every Baudouin product is crafted to the same exacting standards demanded of the harsh ocean-going environment… durable, robust, and built to last.

This is evident in the company’s comprehensive range of engines and generators. Such as the tough M26.2 series, and the latest M26.3 common rail engine range which extended marine power to 1650hp while offering unmatched continuous power to weight ratio and noise reduction technology.

In 2017, Baudouin launched their innovative PowerKit range of engines for power generation applications. Using the same design philosophy of the marine engines, every PowerKit product includes the engine, cooling system and air cleaner, with a choice of outputs spanning 15 to 2000 kVA for both 50 and 60 Hz applications.

In addition to high-end components and engineering excellence, every PowerKit product is backed by one of the best warranty programs on the market: 2 years and unlimited hours for prime power applications, and 4 years for standby power applications.

Baudouin also delivers some of the longest intervals between servicing and overhauls in the industry. This, combined with excellent fuel economy, gives their engines one of the best and most competitive ‘total cost of ownership’. Yet another reason clients all over the world trust Baudouin to stay up and running, whatever their power needs. 

“As we enter a new century in Baudouin’s history, durability, reliability and clean power remain our key focus areas,” says Fabrizio Mozzi, the company’s President and Managing Director.

“Our completely new and extended product range meets the most stringent customer requirements, allowing us to access the majority of global markets and applications. We have never been better equipped to power our clients’ success, as we look to the next 100 years of excellence in the engine industry.”

Genset Battle Royale; Diesel, Natural Gas or Bi-fuel!

diesel fuel vs natural gas vs bi-fuel genrep

Genset Battle Royale Diesel, Natural Gas or Bi-fuel!

Canada has a variety of fuel options for commercial and industrial power generation. Diesel fuel has historically been the top contender since there have been diesel engines available in the industrial market. They are rugged, reliable, and much more efficient than gasoline. With time comes innovation, and today there are many different industrial power generation options. But which one is the best? Let’s see if Diesel will hold on to its championship title or if it will be overthrown by Natural Gas or Bi-Fuel?

Current Champion: Diesel Fuel

Canada has a variety of fuel options for commercial and industrial power generation. Diesel fuel has historically been the top contender since there have been diesel engines available in the industrial market. They are rugged, reliable, and much more efficient than gasoline. With time comes innovation, and today there are many different industrial power generation options. But which one is the best? Let’s see if Diesel will hold on to its championship title or if it will be overthrown by Natural Gas or Bi-Fuel? Diesel is used a lot in remote areas where there is no access to Natural Gas. Diesel is shipped to these locations and is used for everything from vehicles to power generation. There are no spark plugs or wires which reduces maintenance costs and engine failure. Diesel fuel is one of the most efficient and energy-dense fuels available today. Diesel can be used for prime or standby power applications, and has the ability to provide power to small loads or up to huge 6 Megawatt loads. Unfortunately, Diesel is not the cleanest source of fuel. It’s bad for the environment as it creates filthy particulates, but there are stiff regulations in place to move industrial Diesel engines into Tier 4 Final emissions standards. As well, Diesel cannot be stored too long or it starts to breakdown and becomes unsuitable for use, causing damage and clogging filters if used.

Challenger to the right: Natural Gas

Challenger to the right: Natural Gas Natural Gas is extremely abundant in Canada and is becoming more and more readily available. A major advantage is that it does not create particulates, so it is a much cleaner fuel. Natural Gas is a fraction of the price as compared to Diesel. However, Natural Gas is not as powerful as Diesel. The initial cost of the engine is a little higher but the gas itself is cheaper. The offset is you may consume more Natural Gas than Diesel for equivalent power output. The biggest problem with Natural Gas is that remote areas requiring power generation must get a lot more complex with how they store it as compared to Diesel. It is possible to compress it down to liquid form and store it using a cryotank, but this makes the process costlier. In summary, the Natural Gas generator option maybe the best option for urban areas but not as much in rural or remote areas. Natural Gas also has the option to be used in cogeneration or CHP (learn about CHP here) which has amazing efficiency and is much more environmentally friendly

Challenger to the left: Bi-Fuel

Challenger to the left: Bi-Fuel This isn’t the new guy; Bi-Fuel has been around as long as Diesel. It’s been used since the 1930’s before the power grid expanded into rural areas; these Bi-Fuel engines could be found all over the world! They were taken out of service due to the economic benefits of the power grid but the concept is gaining popularity again. The push for cleaner energy, and reducing imported oil is at the top of the governments reoccurring issues. Diesel fuel prices are on a steady rise along with gasoline, while Natural Gas stays low and inexpensive. These Bi-Fuel systems that allow mixing of Diesel and Natural Gas can harness the efficiency and higher torque of Diesel, while also taking advantage of the cleaner emissions and lower cost of Natural Gas. This option is more powerful than just Natural Gas option. It is also more expensive that either option.

Genset Battle Royale Diesel, Natural Gas or Bi-fuel!

Each challenger has its pros and cons for power generation. Bi-Fuel can be complex and expensive to get started up, but offers a cleaner option than Diesel and a more powerful option than Natural Gas. Diesel can be used anywhere and is the absolute most powerful, but it comes with a huge environmental cost until regulations are fully implemented. Then there is Natural Gas which is hands-down the cleanest option – also perhaps one of the cheaper options – but it’s limited on power and where it can be used. The selection comes down to application, location and cost, as well on environmental considerations.

Genrep offers Seneca Power Generation brand generators. These commercial or industrial heavy duty generators come in a variety of fuel types. Seneca offers Diesel, Natural Gas and Bi-Fuel options; we work with you to ensure the best power product for your application. Click here to learn more

Genrep to the Rescue!!

Genrep to the Rescue!!

Genrep to the Rescue!!

Being in the generator service business means that we are constantly responding to emergency calls wherever is required. It’s the nature of the industry! Genrep has been servicing generators across Canada for over 34 years. We are on the road 24/7/365 because we know the importance of emergency service and reducing downtime for our customers.

Recently, two large, upscale condo buildings downtown Toronto lost power.   Heavy rain leaked into the condo’s HVAC system on to the high voltage panel, which caused an explosion.   No one was hurt, thankfully, but the damage caused a power outage and the building required extensive repairs in order to restore power.

The standby generators for the buildings – which Genrep maintains – switched on flawlessly to provide emergency life-safety power to the residents for over 50 hours.  Unfortunately, while these powered emergency lights, elevators and other essential services, it still left hundreds of residents without electricity in their units.

Genrep came to the rescue by providing an additional 2 Megawatts of power using rental generators while the Condo Corporation worked to fix the damage caused by the rain.  These rental generators ensured residents had full power during the repairs.  Genrep attended and coordinated a major collaboration of trades to supply and install the equipment required; more than 150 hours of Genrep’s manpower and almost 18,000 feet of power distribution cables went in to the effort.

Genrep’s presence was immediate and swift and we stayed on point until everything was settled.  We are proud to say that these two condo buildings are back online and everyone has power!
