Dieselec Thistle Generators has recently installed and commissioned a generator set for the Royal and Ancient Golf Club of St Andrews (R&A) at its nearby new Kingbarns golf equipment testing centre.

The FG Wilson P88-3 silent generator with a 125A auto-changeover panel was re-painted to match the surroundings at the development which has been designed in an energy efficient, environmentally sensitive manner.

The building incorporates a range of features, such as air source heat pumps, and uses sustainable materials, including an extensive sedum roof that will allow it to sit comfortably in its setting at Kingsbarns.

Utilising the latest technology, the 22,750 sq. ft centre will provide a world class testing and research facility that will consolidate the R&A’s Equipment Standards department, which is currently spread across three locations.

It represents a major investment for the R&A that will enhance its ability to monitor and apply the ‘equipment rules’ on behalf of its 152 affiliated organisations around the world.

Brian Muirie, Sales Director, DTG, said: “We’re delighted to have been involved in the development of this world-class facility. As a trusted partner to some of the UK’s major infrastructure projects, it’s great to be selected for this high-profile developments.”
