FG Wilson Engineering is a truly global company with over 3,000 employees and 45 years of experience in the supply of diesel and gas generator sets.

FG Wilson product ranges from 6.8 – 2,500 kVA, including open and enclosed generator sets providing prime and standby power – from standby domestic use, right up to power modules with the ability to operate as complete power stations supplying electricity to national grids.


FG Wilson serves and supports customers all over the world through its Global Dealer Network. With the back-up of FG Wilson’s power solutions team, dealers can meet any power requirement, no matter how complex.

In recent years data centres have represented an expanding opportunity for FG Wilson. FG Wilson product is providing power support for data centres in countries all over the world including UK and Ireland, Europe, South America and Asia.


Sentrum – owner and operator of multiple data centres across the UK – is just one example of a major data centre company relying on FG Wilson for power support. A specialist in the operation and on-going management of mission-critical environments, Sentrum offers flexible, cost effective and resilient data centre solutions delivered by a highly experienced team.  Comprising in excess of 1.4 million sq ft, Sentrum’s high specification facilities have been designed and built to enable clients to confidently specify every aspect of their data centre.


Sentrum was also the first data centre operator to offer fully bespoke and scalable solutions, with dedicated plant (mechanical & electrical infrastructure) for every data suite. This ensures that Sentrum customers benefit from access to truly customised solutions both in terms of space, power configurations and levels of resilience.


Tri-Gen Power, one of FG Wilson’s UK distributors, has supported Sentrum with all its standby power needs. Over 130 FG Wilson diesel generator sets, rated at 1500kVA, have been supplied, installed and commissioned by Tri-Gen Power in the past few years. These generator sets were supplied with FG Wilson sound attenuated enclosures, 20m long and weighing 70 ton.


As the data centres are often situated close to residential areas, this power product also had to guarantee extremely low noise levels. The cooling system was designed with remote roof mounted radiators, fitted with low noise level cooling fans, whilst the exhaust system involves three separate low noise level silencer elements that discharge vertically.


The generator sets are fitted with automatic synchronising panels and typically paralleled in groups of twenty. They are also supplied with fuel tanks with a running capacity of 72 hours.


Franek Sodzawiczny, Sentrum’s co-founder and chief development officer, commented, “Our selection of FG Wilson generator sets for our UK data centres was based on quality, reliability, competitive pricing and delivery – we were not disappointed.”


Tri-Gen Power has sales and marketing offices in Mayfair with project design and after sales support from premises in Woking.


As the demands of the data centre sector continue to evolve, FG Wilson continues to adapt its product and service offering to remain the first choice for power support.
