Bay Diesel worked closely with the Maritime Administration to provide a custom 300kW John Deere Diesel Generator for one of their training programs. Bay Diesel added monitoring gauges to the unit that will give the students a hands on, interactive approach in identifying, diagnosing and fixing potential issues that can arise while out to sea. Each gauge controls a different part of the generator allowing the instructor to provide ‘real life scenarios’ to students during training.

Bay Diesel is proud to be apart of this project and provided (2) Generac natural gas standby generators to ensure that the power stays on when it’s needed the most.
The Peninsula Regional Animal Shelter is a 30,000 square foot state-of-the-art facility that provides animal sheltering, adoption services, individual adoption areas, a shelter clinic, a surgical center, grooming area and outside animal runs. With specific EPA emissions requirements in mind, Bay Diesel recommended going with a Generac 3 x 300 kW Modular Power System (MPS), natural gas application for this project. The benefit of going with a Modular Power System is that it will provide N+2 redundancy for the entire facility and if one engine were to fail, it would not interfere with the day to day operations of the shelter. Bay Diesel helped complete the project on time and on budget, and is proud to be apart of this new state-of-the-art facility.
