The Vital Role of a Generator Day Tank

In the realm of power generation, one component stands out for its critical function in maintaining continuous operations: the generator day tank. While often overlooked, the generator day tank plays a pivotal role in ensuring uninterrupted power supply to essential systems and facilities. Let’s delve into what makes these tanks indispensable and why they are a cornerstone of reliable power generation infrastructure.

What is a Generator Day Tank?

A generator day tank is a fuel storage vessel specifically designed to supply a generator with a constant and reliable fuel source for short-term operations. Unlike larger bulk fuel storage tanks, which store fuel for extended periods, day tanks are smaller in size and intended to provide fuel for a limited duration, typically 8 to 24 hours. They are positioned close to the generator set, ensuring quick and efficient fuel delivery during power outages or emergencies.

Day tanks are often ‘bottom outlet’, and may have built-in upstand, enabling them to provide a consistent head of pressure direct to the generator set.
