Power Generation

Power Generation

Our daily lives have become dependent on having power readily available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Hospitals, banks, cell phone towers, and other critical facilities depend on backup power to provide uninterrupted operation. Emergency standby generators must start and accept full load power within ten seconds of an outage:  Hotstart engine heaters make that happen.

By continuously heating the coolant in the engine's block during standby mode, Hotstart heating systems keep generators ready to start. For 500 watt and smaller generators, Hotstart offers a wide range of heating solutions including both convection-based and pump-driven options. For generators 1 MW and larger, Hotstart also offers high efficiency heat pump systems to reduce operating costs. Ensure your facility is ready to stay powered when it matters most with Hotstart heaters.


HOTSTART: How Much Energy Can You Save?

HOTSTART: How Much Energy Can You Save?


During the last 12 months, the way we work has changed significantly. Who knew it would take a virus to really show us what we’re made of? The situation with COVID changed how we operate and communicate, which posed very significant challenges. While we bent and flexed to keep things moving, we always had fear or worry lurking in the shadows. One thing I have grown to appreciate is the way vendors flexed and communicated their internal challenges – but it’s not just that, they did it in a way that allowed our operations to flex along with them, keeping those fears far from the danger zone.

Not all vendors were able to handle the challenges that were thrown at them. There were, however; a few that really seemed to shine, and Hotstart was definitely one of those! Being provided with information in a timely manner that allowed for adjustments was something I wouldn’t have been able to operate without. Another way Hotstart set themselves apart was by providing dates and sticking to them. In manufacturing, there is a serious need for clear, reliable information sharing. I consider myself fortunate to have been able to work through the COVID challenges with a team that included people like Lena and Jim. Not only were we always kept in the loop regarding their own supplier challenges, but if there were products we could use to substitute, Jim was quick to provide that information. I look forward to continuing to work with the team at Hotstart!

We at Generac ‐ Ottomotores value OUR PEOPLE, thus promoting their development and knowledge are an ongoing priority in order to maintain quality of our technical offering when supplying power solutions. As a business partner, HOTSTART's team traveled to Mexico to provide technical training in preheating engines to both our production and engineering personnel, as well as best installation practices, with the goal to improve preheater performance in our Gen Set groups. The training was a success, and will allow us to continue improving on quality which is a characteristic of our equipment.

We have been working with HOTSTART since 2006. Since the beginning, the relationship between our companies was something more than the standard between supplier and customer. When we asked them to develop a specific engine heater for our business (production and sales of Generating sets), we found HOTSTART to be very collaborative and fast to respond. During the years, the knowledge between our companies has increased and we can say the relationship has turned into a real collaboration. The replies to our requests are always quick, allowing us to quickly respond to production needs or customer requests.
