Not all jobs can be powered by the grid. There was a time when most industrial endeavours were powered by their own stationary engine. Mills, farms and workshops generated their own mechanical power using stationary engines to drive shafts, belts and gears. Today electric motors are common for driving large water pumps and powering pumping stations, but stationary engines have performed this job in a reliable manner for centuries.
Specialist and historical uses
Where additional power input was needed for lifting boats through lochs and canals, a stationary engine could be set up to serve the need. Funiculars and cable railways often relied on stationary engines especially in remote locations such as ski fields or steep terrain. Many still do!
