We are one of the few companies in the UK to operate a 24/7 emergency service. Our wide-ranging fleet of hire generators and in-house transport mean we can respond immediately to emergency outages. We will deliver rapidly to minimise downtime.
Once you have opened an account, we can typically mobilise our generators within minutes. After that, we will dispatch it to your site.
Our hire generators range from 20kVA to 2100kVA. They can also be used in synchronisation to provide power up to a combined output of 25MW.
If you wish to buy a generator, we can help to source generators from 4kVA to 3500kVA.
It’s important that the generator is correctly sized. Sourcing a generator that can handle all of your power requirements is one of the most critical aspects of the purchasing process.
We would advise you to contact us directly on 0845 600 3335. Our team of specialists can help you establish the size you need. We will need to understand the items to be powered by the generator as well as the starting and running wattage of these items. With this information, we will be able to calculate your total power requirements.
We operate under the Construction Plant-hire Association (CPA) terms of hire. Once you hire a generator from us, you will be responsible for securing it against theft, damage and loss. This means you will need hired-in plant insurance cover.
If you don’t already have hired-in plant insurance cover in place, we suggest purchasing it from JCB.
The amount of insurance cover required will depend on the value of the generator hired. Our team can advise you of the details you will need to give your insurance provider.
The key variable is size, however there are lots of other factors. These include:
- does your generator need to be portable?
- will you require a battery storage pack?
- are ancillary products needed, such as cabling and fuel management?
- do you require maintenance?
Our team can guide you through the process and advise on the equipment that will work best for your needs.
Our hire fleet of generators are made by leading European manufacturer HIMOINSA.
As a vertical manufacturer, HIMOINSA produces all components of the genset: alternators, engines, canopies, control panels, automatic transfer switches and paralleling systems. All parts are perfectly integrated and the final product is tested before shipping. This minimises potential problems during commissioning.
If you want to buy a generator, we will highlight the most appropriate manufacturer for your needs.
In addition to our diesel generator fleet, we offer a number of greener hire alternatives, including hybrid power solutions.
Choosing a hybrid is a great way to power a site largely through green technology. A hybrid offers a cleaner, low-carbon and noise-reducing alternative to a diesel generator. In some cases, a hybrid can eliminate the need for a diesel generator.
Using high-efficiency energy storage technology, hybrids are designed specifically for temporary applications. This makes them ideal in the construction, events, utilities and telecommunications industries.
Hybrids can also lead to considerable cost savings due to lower fuel consumption, fewer refilling visits and less need for servicing.
If you are looking to buy a generator, we can source a selection of greener alternatives to diesel, including gas generators.
When deciding whether it’s better to hire or buy a generator, you need to consider:
- the size of generator required
- how long the generator will be running each day
- the period you require the generator for.
If you need a generator for a one-off or short-term project, it could be significantly cheaper to hire a generator. Another benefit of hiring a generator is the inclusion of maintenance.
For a longer-term project, it might make more sense to buy a generator.
Our team of power specialists can talk you through cost and usage analysis to help you make the right decision. Contact us directly on 0845 600 3335 to get started.
Our complete temporary power service can support you with generator hire, generator sales, installation and maintenance.
We also offer full turnkey project management and a range of ancillary products and services, including loadbanks, distribution boards, transformers, fuel management, telemetry and lighting towers.
Our power contingency plans mitigate the financial and operational risks caused by a power outage. This means they are an important consideration.
Combined with our 24/7 emergency service, our disaster recovery plans are tailored to your business and operational needs. This ensures that our people and equipment can be on site swiftly and safely when you need us most.
Work with our specialists to put together a plan that covers the equipment, engineering, logistics and people needed to put things right in an emergency.
With a power contingency plan, you can be confident that we will get your site up and running as quickly as possible following a power outage.
