Rigidly Mounted Engine

In this setup, the engine and generator are rigidly mounted on a shared base frame. The frame is in turn elastically mounted and installed on a baseplate. This ensures the dynamic forces are safely transferred into the substructure. For rigid installation on the base frame, RATO DG, RATO S, RATO R and VULKARDAN G couplings can be used as the torsionally elastic couplings depending on the specific requirements of the system. The radial, axial and angular elasticity of these couplings also ensures optimum compensation of shaft misalignments.​
