Industrial Diesel Generators for Hire

Don’t let a blackout keep you in the dark!

Companies often require our generators in temporary situations, such as shutdowns, breakdowns, maintenance periods, testing, for shore to ship power or refurbishment.  However with factors beyond our control, blackouts/power-outs are becoming an issue all companies should be prepared for in 2023.

Most buildings/factories are not set up for accepting anything other than grid mains and because of this, any black outs could cause major disruption and downtime/power loss. From refrigeration to care homes, this can have a devastating effect.

That’s why our diesel generators are available 24/7.  Our expert engineers can find the best sized generator to meet your needs, deliver and install all of your equipment quickly, to prevent you loosing power and money.  With power ranges from 20KVA to 1250KVA, we have the generator to fit your needs.

What Our Customers Say

Great over the phone help with issues and immediate engineer to site response - great service.

Oliver Schooler, June 2020

I spoke with Amy Finn who dealt with the break down support. She was superb. Understood my requirements and kept me updated throughout the process. The engineer resolved the problem promptly, also spares were made available if the problem was bigger than expected to mitigate any risk of having to wait for parts.

Malcolm Brown, May 2020

Great service from Billy, Brandon and Liam. They worked quickly and efficiently into the early hours to get our 800KW hire drive up and running. They also removed our damaged drives and took them away for repair. Got our plant producing saving us massive costs due to lost production. The engineers worked safely and calmly during a highly pressured period. Great work done by your guys!

Lee Armitage, March 2020
