No, the price does not include installation. Each installation is different and requires a different length  cable. Travel time and distance vary.

All installations need to be carried out  by a qualified electrician who needs to issue a valid Certificate of Compliance (COC) for insurance and to validate our warranty.

No, GenKing are the manufacturers of the gensets units and are the largest wholesaler of diesel generators in Sub-Saharan Africa. Any qualified electrician can do the installation and issue the electrical certificate of compliance (COC).

Quoted prices exclude delivery. Delivery can be quoted separately if you supply us with the delivery location. Our sales team will provide a quote on request and provide logistical support.

Yes, our silent generators all include silent canopies and automatic transfer switches (ATS). Delivery and installation are not included as noted above. Accessories and customisations can be included as required, speak to our sales team for more information.

The warranty is 12 Months or 1000 Hours whichever occurs first and is a limited warranty which covers the replacement of defective spare parts but not the labour or travel. Please refer to our standard terms and conditions for more information.

The pricing is subject to change with no prior notice based on availability and the exchange rate. Any publically available pricing is indicative. Written quotes are valid for 7 calendar days and while stocks last.

All ratings are stated at sea level and de-rating will be applicable for both altitude and temperature variations.

It is important to note that a qualified electrician measures how many Amps per phase you will need to draw on site for your running load and your maximum first-step load.

Do not exceed 50% of the rated load of the generator for your first-step load. Do not exceed more than 75% of the rated load for your running load.

It is also important that your genset does not run at below 50% load as this can cause damage to the engine and other parts.
