Most power cuts are unforeseen and until the electricity is cut off, many organisations do not appreciate the importance of electrical power. The vast majority of the time, power outages are a result of inclement weather such as a lightning strike damaging power lines, but there are countless other reasons why they occur. In these circumstances, it is important to have a plan in place to restore the power quickly.
Power outages may be long or short term, therefore a process for when the electricity is cut off should involve a backup power source, especially for organisations reliant on continuous power.
Hiring a Generator in an Emergency
In the event of electricity power cut, a professional team such as Shenton Group will deliver a power solution to provide you with temporary power. Hiring a generator is a cost effective option for those who do not want the bigger outlay of purchasing one.
If you are planning to find a generator hire company to support you in the event of an electricity power cut, choose one who provides generator hire 24/7 and is available every day of the year. Unexpected power cuts are exactly that and can occur at any given moment, which means generator rental providers need to offer support around the clock.
Power Call – Nationwide Emergency Call out Generators
When your electricity is cut off, there is an option available without the outlay of a permanent on-site generator. With strategically placed depots throughout the country, a fast response time to a UK power cut is guaranteed with our Power Call service. Power Call is a unique service to Shenton Group customers that ensures you are not left without power for long periods of time, available for a small monthly fee.
How Does It Work?
- Once registered, a Shenton Group engineer will come to your site or facility and install a ‘plug-and-play’ manual generator connection and changeover system. This enables the generator to be quickly and easily set up once on site, providing power until the mains power returns.
- For a fixed monthly fee, emergency call outs to unscheduled power cuts are unlimited.
- A network control room manages all call-outs around the clock, co-ordinating delivery, connection, refuelling and the collection of the generator.
Power Call provides customers with support during an electricity power cut, equipping them with everything they need to remain operational but without breaking the bank.
Turnkey Temporary Power Solutions
When you need to act quickly to restore the power, having access to a turnkey solution is essential. Our dedicated team of specialists will be able to establish the exact solution required for your site. Better still, given their experience, the team will also recommend and provide all the temporary power equipment required including:
- Cable Protectors
- Load banks
- Fuel tanks
Temporary power solutions such as generators are classed according to kVA (Kilovolt-ampere). This is essentially an indication of the power output. 1 kVA will provide 1,000 volt-amps. At Shenton we provide the hire of standby and prime power generators from 30kVA up to 1250kVA, and can synchronise multiple generators for larger power requirements. This enables us to supply our clients with a suitably sized generator for their needs.
We are equipped to meet the demand of any bespoke residential, commercial, or heavy-duty applications 24/7, 365 days a year UK wide.
Regardless of where you are located in the UK, no matter how remote, we will deliver everything to your site and set it all up allowing you to focus on running your business.
Protection from Electricity Power Cuts
Aside from temporary backup power solutions, there is the option to install a permanent backup power supply, and for those who cannot afford any loss of power, UPS solutions. A UPS will help to protect expensive or essential equipment from losing power, acting as a bridge and providing valuable power whilst your generator starts up. Once the generator is up and running, the full electrical load is then switched to the generator. UPS solutions also offer the added bonus of stabilising the power supply, stopping power surges or spikes which can cause damage to equipment.
For those looking for a diesel standby generator, we are able to offer assistance for the full turnkey installation including:
- Project Management
We now also offer finance for UPS and generator installations, for those looking to have a generator on site to protect their assets from power cuts.
