Florida Service Team Makes Headlines In Jacksonville

In the wild world of television news, you never know when there’s going to be a breaking story in the field-- local or national. As with any industry, a team wants to be at the top of their game, and with TV news it’s no different as each station wants to get the scoop on the latest story. Having backup power for a TV station is of utmost importance when weather or other events compromise the aging power grid. That’s why the crew at Channel 12 (WTLV) trusts Generator Source when it comes to a generator for standby power.

“Channel 12 News is upgrading their standby generator due to the age of the current Caterpillar,” said Chad Rowland, project manager at Generator Source out of Jacksonville. “We are helping them with this upgrade, changing from the outdated 400 kW CAT to a new, more reliable 500 kW MTU.
“This was basically a swap due to age of the CAT as we pulled the old unit out and replaced it with the larger MTU,” added Rowland. “The CAT was still up and running, just old and becoming unreliable. Chuck, Mike and I rigged both units in and out on skates, using pry bars and some old-fashioned muscle to get the units swapped and complete the job.”

Generators allow hospitals, large buildings like hotels, data centers, and smaller operations to keep running in the event of an outage. Of course, here in the Southeast, generators are the norm with hurricanes often knocking out power.
