Shenton Group has over thirty years’ experience in providing customers from an array of sectors with diesel-powered solutions to ensure they can continue to operate even when the mains power supply fails.

We manufacture diesel HV & LV generators, ranging from 10kVA to 3200kVA, and provide an end-to-end service from design to final commissioning. Ongoing assistance is available from our team of dedicated diesel generator experts.

As well as permanent solutions, we offer Power Call, where customers pay a monthly subscription fee to have our team on call as and when they need a diesel generator or support, without the expense of a permanent generator install.  

Emergency Diesel Generators

Standby emergency generators, such as those used in hospitals and healthcare facilities, provide a backup source of power in the event of a National Grid outage or a power surge. Partnered with a UPS to maintain power while the generator switches on, an emergency diesel generator is essential to ensure that any vital equipment continues to function.

Diesel Generator Fuel Tanks

The majority of generators come with fuel tanks that provide 10 hours run time at 75% load, and Shenton can also provide bespoke diesel generator solutions if longer times are required.

Supplying Diesel Generators Since the 1980’s

Shenton Group has been the ‘go to’ provider of diesel generators since the 1980’s, supplying to organisations such as the British Army. We continue to provide a number of Ministry of Defence clients with reliable and trusted power services, including the installation of several diesel generators at RAF Valley.

Thames Water, various Financial Service companies and other prestigious clients have made use of our expertise over the past 35 years.

Diesel Generator Maintenance

Aside from supplying diesel generators, Shenton Group also supplies maintenance services to keep backup and emergency power generators in prime condition. Planned maintenance is critical to the health of any diesel generator and ensuring you have reliable power when you need it. No matter how remote you are based, we provide UK wide coverage from our thirty service locations.

We offer bespoke maintenance contracts, remote monitoring to ensure your diesel generator is running as it should, generator upgrades, oil or coolant sampling as well as parts and spares.

Load Bank Testing

We offer a complete load bank testing service, which is a controlled test of your backup power generator. Regular testing of standby diesel generators at full electrical load is key to ensure reliable performance during a power outage. We recommend load bank testing at least once a year to ensure reliable performance during any outage.

Our diesel generator load bank testing service includes:

  • Site Survey, delivery and positioning of the load bank
  • Site logistics
  • Testing of the generator/ power source
  • Disconnection and removal of the load bank
  • Reconnection to the normal load
  • Detailed results with a full written report
