Companies often need to hire a generator to keep their business operational. The reasons for renting a generator are varied ranging from a scheduled shutdown, the aftermath of floods, fire and power outages to powering up equipment for a show or exhibition. When selecting a generator rental company, managers should investigate several issues including the generator company’s location, price and ability to provide the required equipment.
Portable Generator Hire
Portable generators come in all shapes and sizes. There are generators suitable for temporary power, emergency power, plant maintenance, outside broadcasts and events and theatre productions. Therefore choosing a generator company with specialist knowledge is paramount in ensuring that your organisation rents the right generator for your specific application.
A rental generator is only part of the overall solution needed for providing standby power. In addition, a generator rental company should be able to provide you with cable kits, bunded fuel tanks, distribution panels, security locks, low voltage transformers, earth rods, etc, which need to form part of an overall system individually tailored to your specific application.

Using a rental 200kVA diesel generator, we enabled the company to ensure the safety of its critical equipment whilst its two standby generators were relocated to the new premises.
Rented Stand-by Power Solutions Used During Remedial Work
The University of East Anglia needed to rent standby power systems to ensure that the campus was able to continue functioning over a 24 hour period whilst the local regional Electricity supplier carried out essential work to upgrade the incoming mains power supply to the site. This involved the provision of three 1250kVA-packaged generators, which were synchronised together.
The low voltage power from the three generators was then put through a step-up transformer, to convert it to a higher voltage of 11kV, and connected into the university’s Primary sub-station. In addition, a separate 500kVA, three-phase generator was used to run the Sports Park in isolation, which houses the swimming pool, fitness centre and human performance laboratory. Using a specially formulated rental package ensured continuity of power whilst the work was carried out.
Short Term Contracts for Rental Generators
Each site required equipping with a power system that comprised of two super-silenced 200kVA generators, bulk fuel tanks, cabling and distribution equipment. Operating in tandem, one generator provided all the necessary power to the mobile unit whilst the other generator remained on standby. When one generator needed to be switched off for servicing, the other generator immediately took over to ensure continuous power to all essential equipment.
Renting a generator is an ideal solution for short term projects and we are proud to support healthcare clients.
Use a Generator Company – Cost Effective Alternative To Buying A Standby Generator
Our Emergency Power Call service is capable of supporting any site that has either single or 3-phase mains electrical supply up to 100 amps with larger buildings being supported by dedicated circuits. We have a 24/7-control room, which arranges for a standby generator to be despatched from a local depot when a call is received from a subscriber. Normally, standard service levels include a target time of 1 hour and a guaranteed commitment to a maximum of three hours.
Upon arrival, the delivery engineer connects the rental generator to the pre-installed generator connection and manual changeover system and advises the customer to switch over to the generator. A mains supply indicator lamp is fitted to the changeover switch to inform the customer when the mains power is restored.
High winds, snow, severe flooding, accidents, and equipment failure cause power cuts. In this current economic climate when companies are competing for their slice of a smaller market, they cannot afford to be without power, even for a matter of hours.
Standby generator hire offers companies the ultimate solution to all major power problems. The type of solution chosen is dependent upon individual requirements, budgets, and circumstances but, whatever your situation or size, there is now a power support rental system available to ensure that all businesses large and small can continue to operate when power cuts occur.
