Diesel Generator Reliability: Fuel Handling Lessons Learned from Major Storms
Webinar Description Description: Although Hurricane Sandy weakened to a Category 1 hurricane by the time it struck New York and New Jersey, its storm surge caused massive flooding in streets, tunnels, and subway lines, resulting in lost power. While power losses were expected with a storm this large, many of the backup generator systems were not designed to operate under large amounts of water. The back-up generators failed under the immense amount of water, leaving many important facilities without power.
