THE MOTOR VALLEY: A LAND OF TRADITION AND HISTORY
IN THE MECHANICAL FIELD
TECNOGEN’s headquarters is located in Pontenure (Piacenza), Northern
Italy, between the international F1 circuits of Monza and Imola.
This is a worldwide well known land characterized by the “Motor Valley”,
the industrial district proud of a centuries-old tradition in AUTOMOTIVE,
MECHANICAL ENGINEERING and MOTORING sectors.
The Motor Valley reaches the excellence in the field of luxury cars and
motorcycles up to international racing competitions.

THE FIRST ENGINE
1853. Eugenio BARSANTI (engineer)
and Felice MATTEUCCI (engineer)
invented and built the first internal
combustion engine in the history.
The first application was realized
in a little factory in the Santa Maria
Novella station in Florence.
OUR FUTURE EMERGES FROM DEEP WITHIN
OUR TECHNOLOGICAL TRADITION
The manufacturing of power generators represents
a mix of specific know how and technical capabilities
not only based on a simple assembling process but on
outstanding skills in electrotechnics, fluid dynamics,
thermodynamics, software competences in addition to
mechanical and electrical.
Italy has a long history of inventions and experiences
which have changed the way of working, living, designing
THE COMMON RAIL ENGINE
1990. Mario RICCO developed in
1990 the common rail system. He
is now considered the father of this
technology which has revolutionized
the automotive sector all over the

THE FIRST BATTERY
1799. Alessandro VOLTA, physicist,
is the inventor of the first battery.
THE BATTERY OF THE FUTURE
2013. Riccardo SIGNORELLI, young
Italian scientist and researcher,
has recently invented a new
powerful ultra-capacitor capable
of efficiently replace the modern
batteries in many applications.
DEEP SEA ELECTRONICS
System in auto
1942. THE FIRST NUCLEAR REACTOR, Enrico
FERMI. This physicist is best known for his
work on Chicago Pile-1 (the first nuclear
reactor - 1942) and for his contributions to the
development of quantum theory, nuclear and
particle physics, and statistical mechanics.
1780. Luigi GALVANI, physician is
the discoverer of electricity.
He found that two different metals
(such as copper and zinc) kept in
contact between them and soaked
in a saline solution, simultaneously
connected to a different region of
the nerve of a frog’s leg, brought on
the contraction of the leg.
THE FIRST RADIO
1898. Guglielmo MARCONI physicist and inventor of the first communication system with wireless
telegraphy via radio waves or
radiotelegraphy. He earned the Nobel
for physics in 1909.
THE FIRST TELEPHONE
1849. Antonio Santi Giuseppe MEUCCI
is the inventor of the electric telephone.
9 THE FIRST MICROPROCESSOR
1971. Federico FAGGIN, physicist,
is widely known for designing the
first world’s microprocessor Intel
4004. Faggin developed the Large
Scale of Integration technology
which favored the first Central
Processing Unit’s construction, a
revolution’s symbol in information
technology and electronics all over
1988. MPEG & MP3, Leonardo CHIARIGLIONE.
This engineer founded in 1988 the MPEG
group formed by 300 experts representing 20
countries from all over the world and from
different audio and digital video sectors.
He produced the first standard format MPEG1, MPEG-2 and MP3, which has revolutionized
the audio and video file compression’s system
in the world.
MANAGING THE EVOLUTION
The interpretation of this consolidated experience and tradition, understood
as the mix of knowledge, professional skills and innovation, becomes
for TECNOGEN a way of working and keeping up with the evolving global
market. TECNOGEN is fully aware that the world has changed. There are
no limits of space, barriers, there is perfect integration among realities and
different ways of thinking. The Company is positively opened to all forms of
internationalization providing SMART and INNOVATIVE SOLUTIONS to
EVOLUTION means for TECNOGEN:
Development of new technologies and advanced tools for research and
Dynamic growth of production capacity with the DIRECT CONTROL
of all the internal processes
EFFICIENCY IMPROVEMENT by ensuring the best performances and
certified reliability of all its products
PARTNERSHIP as a key driver to know-how transferring and to cooperate
for the best businesses.
TECNOGEN’s vision is based on a qualified production capability and an
advanced know-how without neglecting the importance of the customer needs.
THE POWER OF INNOVATION
FUSTEQ, a new series of ultra-silent generators with VSi
technology engineered to meet Limit Ambient Temperature
> 55°C at continuous rating, designed to achieve very low noise
levels and a considerable reduction in fuel consumption.
(Variable Speed inverter) technology manages the flow
of cooling air in a very innovative way through its special multiple
fans’ electric radiator.
PRODUCTS AND INNOVATION
THE POWER OF LED
THE POWER OF CONTROL
The new range of LED lighting towers, the truly
eco-solution, are characterized by less consumption
than incandescent systems; long-life up to five
times longer than best traditional lamps; lower
environmental impact, thanks to its lower
consumption and to the lack of hard to dispose of
materials, such as mercury; more safety because of
low voltage used and no ultraviolet infrared radiation.
Remote Fleet Monitoring (RFM) devices, designed by UNITS CONTROL,
a Company of BRUNO Group, can be used for stopping/starting
generating sets, blocking/unblocking control panels, resetting alarms,
switching between manual auto start & automatic mode and more features
such as fuel management, battery level, oil pressure, engine temperature,etc.

FOR THE BEST CONTROL
The COMPANY has TOTAL CONTROL OF ALL PRODUCTION PHASES, starting from
the punching and the cutting of the metal sheets, to bending and automatic painting steps. Even
the assembling phase and the control tests, which are carried out on every finished item, are
INTERNALLY MANAGED, as well as the packaging before the final shipment.
In the age of globalisation, TECNOGEN strongly believes in holding all production
factories in Italy to ensure the highest quality of its product and extra bit of

For TECNOGEN quality is not limited to the products, but it is conceived as a way of
thinking and operating. We have realized technologically advanced laboratories equipped
with the latest generation testing machines which are able to test the IP grade, the
level of external agents aggression in particular environments and the tropicalization.
Saline fog test are carried out to verify the materials oxidation and stress tests are made both
on mechanical and electrical components.
Climatic chambers and thermo metering tools are used to perform thermal analysis of
electrical and mechanical parts.
ALL TECNOGEN GENERATING SETS
ARE FACTORY TESTED APPLYING DIFFERENT LOAD
STEPS UP TO 110% OF THE NOMINAL POWER.
TESTING IS CARRIED OUT ON EACH GENSET
PRODUCED AND NOT JUST RANDOMLY.
Oscilloscopes and similar equipment measure the voltage waveform
distortions in case of non-linear loads, while an innovative photometric
tunnel verifies the parameters for the lighting products.
Assessing abnormal vibrations, doing accurate tests for noise levels and
painting gripping are activities led by our highly trained staff.
In this way TECNOGEN has become leader in professional sectors,
characterizing its products for reliability thanks to the best QUALITY
CONTROL guaranteed by the VERTICAL INTEGRATION STRATEGY.
