8.1.5   Transport by rail/road
When transporting containers by road or by rail, a so-called gen-set (generator set) is used for longer transport times. These generators are either attached to the end of the container (see Fig. 30) or under a trailer (Fig. 31).
The capacity of these gen-sets is again governed by ISO 1496-2, which means that they are designed to provide 15 kW of power at the most.
