Unnamed Administration sources reported that Sean Donelan said:
But I would like to point out, no one regularly runs their
generators for 48+ hours as part of a normal test. In addition,
most standby generators are fitted only for "limited" duration
runs. You should expect problems during any extended run of a
generator plant. I'm a bit surprised that 25 Broadway and
32 Old Slip are the only ones we've heard about.
Until I know a bit more about what happened, I can't say
whether any alternative design could have performed better.
Hell yes. "Standby service" is a way different set of rating
(I'm sorry to guess if it still overheats, a blown headgasket
or cracked head are real possibilities...)
