Advanced Diesel Engineering (ADE) Ltd is a specialist manufacturer of diesel generators and bespoke silenced and super-silent generator enclosures. At ADE we have been designing, manufacturing and supplying generators for over 20 years, and over that time we have developed systems suitable for a huge range of applications across a number of industries. They include generators for prison security, hospital emergency power systems, data centre stand-by systems, and portable and prime power generators for off-shore and industrial use.

From single engine stand-by systems to multi-engine synchronised generator power plants, the experts at ADE can design, supply, install and maintain an ultra-reliable power system for virtually any situation. In our warehouse we have an incredible range of brand new generators in various shapes and sizes, as well as a number of approved used systems. Diesel generators range from 11 to 3300kVA. ADE also specialises in the acoustic treatment and containerisation of medium to high power generators. We run an 80,000 sq ft manufacturing and engineering facility with a large cutting and press area, with seven press brakes operating at any one time.

Alongside these are fourteen welding, cutting and construction bays, each large enough to accommodate two 12m ISO containers for modification. After construction, containers are finished in two large spray areas. Using these facilities, we are able to build bespoke containers and enclosures for noise reduction and weather protection. So for all your generator solutions, including commissioning, maintenance, silencing and containerisation, get in touch with ADE. More information on our products and services can be found on the ADE website.

New Diesel Generators

At any given time we have over £6m worth of brand new generators in our warehouse. Our range covers all application and budget requirements, and most products we supply include all the necessary features to limit installation costs - that includes high capacity fuel tanks, starting batteries, manual or autostart controllers, and 4-pole circuit breakers. From 5 to 3300kVA, we have a generator for all requirements, including silenced and containerised models. In our large warehousing facility we have generators manufactured by the likes of MTU, Mitsubishi, CAT, Volvo, John Deere, Cummins, Perkins, Olympian, and of course, ourselves.

Specialist Generator Projects

We have been involved in the manufacture of bespoke generator containers for over twenty years, so we have the skills and experience to take on almost all specialised requirements.

We know that generator systems are often too large to fit inside a standard ISO shipping container, which is why design and manufacture bespoke silenced and super-silent generator enclosures. These are ideal in situations where noise levels must be kept at a minimum.

Get in touch with the experts at ADE to discuss your requirements.

Static and Rotary UPS systems

ADE supplies a wide range of static UPS Systems from GE, a manufacturer with real pedigree in the industry. In fact, their innovative UPS technologies have been setting the industry standard for over 100 years.

We also provide dynamic rotary UPS systems manufactured by KST. UPS systems offer vital power failure protection for industries that rely on electronic systems. In certain sectors, the availability of power can be the difference between success and failure. In others, it can even be the difference between life and death. ADE's excellent range of static and rotary UPS systems provide the essential back-up that is commonly required by a variety of organisations.

Custom Container Systems

ISO shipping containers are used for weather protection, to improve security, and to reduce noise levels. ADE can install generator systems (up to 1600kVA) with basic control panels and fuel systems inside a single 40ft standard shipping container.

Larger systems can also be installed with the fuel supply and/or engine cooling system mounted externally. When a remote fuel supply is required, the fuel connections are installed on the side of the container for easy access and maintenance.

If you would like to find out more about our containerised generator systems, please do not hesitate to get in touch.

Generator Sub Stations

ADE supplies containerised sub-station systems from around 500 to 3500kVA. These provide uninterrupted low or high voltage power for a range of organisations across a number of industries.

Our sub-stations are used to provide primary or emergency stand-by power in prisons, hospitals, control centres, oil rigs, factories and data centres. A number of control options are available, including load-sharing, remote and synchronised parallel operation.

To find out more about our generator sub-stations, head to the ADE website or get in touch directly.

Fuel Systems

Fuel tanks from ADE are double-skinned as standard, with the options of 'pipe in pipe' and duplex-pumped fuel feed and return systems. They are made from pressure tested steel plate with corrosion resistant fittings, and include high and low level monitors that sound an alarm in the event of low fuel level, fuel tank overfill, and excess ingress of fluids into the bund area.

Find out more about our generator fuel tanks by visiting the ADE website.

Generator Installation & Commissioning

Our installation engineers ensure that when you need your generator to provide vital power, it will do so without fail. They complete all aspects of the project, including excavation of cable trenches and foundation groundwork.

After delivery, your generator will be fully installed and tested, and all operation manuals and wiring diagrams will be provided. Training is provided for operation personnel if required. All manner of generator installations are undertaken, including high voltage mains integration and BMS integration into remote installations.

Servicing and Maintenance

All generators need to be tested and serviced on a regular basis to ensure reliable, efficient performance when called upon. ADE offers several maintenance contracts that are tailored to suit your requirements. These include component checks and changes, equipment cleaning and load testing. Visit our website and take a look at our excellent packages.
