LISTER DIESELS FROM INDIA
LISTER DIESEL GENERATORS AND MOTORS BUILT IN INDIA
Somebody in India bought the factory from the U.K. for the Lister diesels we used to buy and use in Belize years ago. Basant Agra is one company building them. About $1600 usa C.I.F to Belize port.
As an alternative to solar power and battery banks, or Desai Steam engines and boilers burning bio mass, it might be worth considering using some local oils like from Jatropha seeds, somebody is now growing and selling the oil here in Belize. Haven´t got any costing comparisons yet on Jatropha oil, but Ethanol is feasable as a supplement, at 10% ethanol to 90% diesel. Alternative fuel for slow turning diesels which can burn them, seem to be a good study for an alternative energy source for producing electricity.
Proven engine, slow rpm, runs for days and weeks. I owned one once. The idea then would be to go with proven machinery such as this, but explore alternative fuel sources, to get fuel prices down to a manageable cost.
