Check to make sure the engine driving the generator will still make enough power at 1500rpm. Being a diesel unit, it probably isn't an issue, but lots of gas gensets struggle to make rated power to begin with (then throw in environmental factors, such as altitude and heat, and they have no hope).
Also, any devices not rated for 50Hz will not last long...
Otherwise, I couldn't really tell you if it will pay off in the long run or not.
