A global biopharmaceutical company, based in the north west of the UK, was expanding due to the increase in demand for pharmaceutical supplies during the COVID-19 pandemic. Further manufacturing and cold storage were required on-site, and temporary power was needed for this expansion.

Project Overview

Shenton Group was tasked with supplying temporary backup generators, specifically to support temporary refrigeration needs, in an N+1 configuration. In this setup, one generator is synchronised with another backup generator to ensure in the rare case of component failure, there is a backup generator that automatically activates and reinstates the power supply within minutes. This solution offered added resilience and peace of mind for the client, especially as this was a long-term generator hire which spanned 7 months, from November 2022 to June 2023, a time that the medical industries across the globe were pushed to the limits and pharmaceutical supplies in high demand.


We provided 2 prime running 100kVA generators in N+1 configuration, bulk 3000 litre fuel tank, cable, and fuel management.

“With extensive experience in the pharmaceutical and manufacturing industries, Shenton Group were eager to assist this client in these challenging times. We offer additional services including site survey, design, delivery, setup, commissioning, ongoing maintenance and refuelling to provide a turnkey temporary power package, making the power aspect of any project as simple and hassle free for our clients.”
