Battery stores can be used independently or combined with a diesel generator as part of a green power solution. We have 5kW (5.6kWh) stores through to 20kW (from 15kWh to 100kWh) stores and can partner with a battery store manufacturer to offer larger units on specialist projects.
Not sure what battery store size is optimal for your project? We can supply smart distro that remotely tracks your energy demand over a defined period and then advise on battery store integration to reduce fuel consumption, CO2 emissions (and eliminate noise!) during periods of low energy demand.
If you want a 'plug in and play' sustainable power source then a hybrid generator may be the answer. These generators come with a fully integrated battery store that kicks in when energy demand is sufficiently low. Reduced engine run hours means reduced CO2 and reduced air pollution. You also get silent running power when the battery kicks in.
We offer a range of generator sizes from 2kW to 100kVA. Our 2kW ‘carry’ generators and 7.5kW barrow generators take petrol. Our diesel generators come in sizes 20kW, 40kW, 50kW, 60kW and 100kW and can be used in conjunction with a battery store as part of a green power solution. Both silent and ultra silent units are available.
We load-bank our generators after each hire and carry out regular safety and maintenance checks to ensure they run efficiently and safely.
We stock a wide range of distribution so you can get power where you need it and in the right format.
Distro boxes are available from 32Amp to 125Amp. Cables we supply include fly leads, single phase and 3-phase cables in 10m and 25m lengths. We also stock jumpers and floor boxes.
We carry out a PAT test on all cables, jumpers and floor boxes after each hire.
Cable ramps protect cables, wires and small hoses from passing traffic and also prevent trip hazards. You simply lift the lid to lay the cable inside the protective ramp.
Our cable ramps have 5 channels measuring 50mm (H) x 36mm (W).
Our fully-bunded diesel bowsers hold 1,000 litres of renewable diesel and come with a 10m retractable hose so you can get the fuel to hard-to-reach places. They go out with safety accessories as standard: a diesel spill kit and fire extinguisher.
Reducing energy demand and efficient use of energy should be the prime focus of any energy project, but as a next step the fuel chosen to meet residual energy demand should be green, clean and safe.
Our renewable diesel is just that. It's the only fuel that we put in our machines and bowsers.
We can also refuel plant at your site with renewable diesel.
