SECURITY AT FOOTBALL STADIUMS

Professional football stadiums are obliged to guarantee spectator safety.

They are therefore subject to very strict regulation.

This includes the obligation of having back-up power:

+ The floodlighting and lighting for public areas must be supported by a secondary power source.
+ If the secondary power source is provided by a generating set, the system must be equipped with automatic start-up and enable lights to be switched on again when still hot.
+For events during night hours, the stadiums of professional clubs must have a regulatory 1,200 Lux lighting installation with a back-up power source (generating set) that allows matches to be played at night.

GELEC ENERGY has created an extensive range of generating sets of between 9 and 2,000 kVA. Click here to view the range.

Making more environmentally friendly music is the challenge we received from our customer, the manager and founder of an events company based in Écuelles which specialises in sound & lighting systems for musical shows.

To provide electrical power for concerts the client decided to acquire generating sets. Sensitive to ecological issues, it was vital to obtain gensets emitting as little pollution as possible.

As the concerts frequently take place outdoors on lawns or close to wooded areas, it was important for the customer that the gensets, as with all other equipment used, were able to satisfy their ecological demands.

Already equipped for lighting with LEDs which consume very little power, the same requirement applied to the enclosures, which also had to be low-consumption and use much less power than traditional systems.

The company therefore selected two BIO ENERGY MOTORS gensets running on vegetable oil (70 kVA gensets), obtained from GELEC ENERGY and perfectly meeting the company’s eco requirements.

Running on vegetable oil, the BIO ENERGY MOTORS gensets offer fuel savings, greater autonomy and are more durable.

“I don’t know about green, but our shows are much less polluting than those organised by most of our competitors, and the odours given off by the gensets even give the spectators an appetite!”, the organiser explains with a smile.

Specially designed to run on new or recycled (used) vegetable oil, this latest generation of engines represents a real advance in green energy and meets the demand among all professionals for alternative energy.

Vegetable oils contain neither lead nor sulphur. Their higher viscosity offers better lubrication and therefore less wear on parts.

A GELEC generating set has been installed in Ouagadougou in Burkina Faso to secure the power supply at a restaurant and family dwelling.

This 35 kVA generating set was installed to provide cover for the unreliable mains supply. With its integrated source inverter, it starts and takes over as soon as the outage occurs. When the mains power is restored the genset also stops automatically.

More information on the 35 kVA generating set.

The unreliable mains supply in Ivory Coast poses a number of problems. Hotels cannot allow themselves to experience an outage, in the interests of both the comfort and safety of their guests.

The Hotel Le Régent in Grand-Bassam in Ivory Coast, located 5km from the beach, ensures its power supply thanks to a GELEC 180 kVA generating set fitted with a source inverter. The source inverter starts up the generating set whenever there is a power outage. The generating set therefore automatically takes over without human intervention. It also stops automatically when the mains power is restored.

GELEC Energy and the WELOVEGREEN festival first collaborated some time ago to meet their solar energy demands with the Hybrid Power Station.

GELEC Energy introduced a range of generating sets running 100% on new or recycled vegetable oil. This green option hit the mark straight away, meeting the ecological power demands of a festival held in the heart of Paris.

The technical services were provided by the company Back Up Energy Green.

Generating sets running on vegetable oil provided all of the festival’s power. In addition to being green, this latest generation of gensets are ultra low-noise.

THE WELOVEGREEN FESTIVAL

On Saturday 10 and Sunday 11 June, the festival provided lively music for young and old alike!

WeLoveGreen is a “festival committed to an eco-responsible approach”. Everything is planned to minimise its environmental impact.

The use of clean energy, waste recycling, use of local and seasonal produce… absolutely everything is eco-friendly.”

Throughout France REXEL holds marketing days where all suppliers are able to come and present their products.

The flagship product at REXEL, the HPOD, was a great success. Its power, recharging speed, ease of use and low weight fascinated the visitors!
The HPOD range is suitable for all situations: Micro for small tools (drills, TVs…), Mini for large tools (forklifts, concrete mixers…), Autoconso (home, office, feedback into the grid, self-consumption …), Stationnaire (large houses, banks, managing multiple energy sources…

We are on these pictures during the REXEL events in Saintes and Angoulême!

Right from the beginning of the great GELEC adventure, you have always been able to find us at different open days throughout France to find out about our generating sets! You are given the opportunity to test them and observe how easy our gensets are to use.

Here we are at an open day held at a dairy farm.

If you are also planning to hold an open day at your farm, please don’t hesitate to contact us – we would be delighted to take part!
