1. How about putting an electric generator on the roof of a datacenter?
2. We have an arrival of an electric line, an electric generator and two ups is this sufficient to get certification TEAR 3 or TEAR 3+

If you put the generator on the roof, and the fuel is not with it, make sure that the fuel pump's electrical is off the generator.  Obvious, but I've it happen.

In adding to loading, I would thoroughly check out vibration isolation. Most generators are designed to be mounted on concrete floors or brake pads, and putting one on a roof might fit require additional vibration isolators, not just a flexible channel segment.
