Portuguese term or phrase: gerados e acessórios
This item is from a list of purchase orders for computer and laboratory equipment. See section below. I can't figure out what "gerados" means. Could it be a typo? The UCC is the "Unidade Central de Coordenação." The country is Angola.

Apparently a typo for "geraradores" a country that struggles with electricity (power) outages all the time, these generators have become part of everyday life.

A total shot in the dark... I suggest asking the client for clarification. I don't see any elements in the source-text that may lead to a safe conclusion in this case.
