Amazon Direct is one of the largest distributors in the UK with over 30 warehouses operating currently. In 2021 an unplanned service requirement arose in one of Amazon’s distribution centres, which resulted in the requirement for a rental generator.

Shenton Group were asked to provide temporary power back up over 2 weekends to run the distribution centre whilst critical servicing works were carried out on the transformers. We provided all requested support and equipment out of hours.

Project Overview

The project required 3 x 1250kVA generators on artic trailers, complete with bulk fuel tanks and cabling. Upon delivering the 3 generators, Shenton Group engineers carried out the full installation of the units and the client was kept updated in regards to progress by our dedicated Operations Team. Once installed Shenton Group also provided ongoing ‘baby sitting’ for the installation to ensure any potential issues could be resolved quickly and give the client further piece of mind. As the generators were running as prime power it was critical that the fuel levels in the bulk fuel tanks were continually monitored. To enable this Shenton Group installed a remote fuel management system and refueled the tanks when required throughout the hire. Once the client’s work had been completed Shenton Group de-installed the generators leaving yet another very satisfied customer
