An installation of Marapco 800kVA generators, powered by Perkins® 4006-23TAG3A engines, is providing critical prime power for First National Bank (FNB) headquarters and data centre in Lebanon.
In 2016, as part of a move to reflect its growing stature, the organisation began an ambitious project to build a brand-new, world-class headquarters for its operations in Beirut’s Central Business District.
The construction contractor, AR Hourie Enterprises facilitated this project, which was supplied and commissioned by Jubaili Bros. As part of its requirements, the installation would need to power all of the business’ electrical functions, including its data centre, accumulating up to 2,000 running hours a year.
Jubaili Bros’ solution included wall and ceiling insulation in the generator room to meet the client’s noise restrictions, forced ventilation, a fuel system with daily and bulk fuel tanks, and a controlled fuel transfer station.
The supplier also provided unique fire-protection. This saw the generator room separated into two sections – one housing two generator units and the other a single unit. So, in the unlikely event of a fire in one section, the other will continue to supply power for the bank’s essential loads.
Marapco generators, which are manufactured in the UK, are highly regarded for their rugged construction, superior performance and exceptionally low maintenance costs. Backed up by more than 20 years of experience, its generators are appreciated by customers across the globe.
