Efficient: We can supply our Powerpod2 range of units which combine two generators for economical and efficient running. One larger unit for use during high demand, a second smaller unit for use in low demand situations; typically in the evening and weekends where only security lighting and server supplies are essential.

Reliable: All powerpods contain the latest up to date generator units, which are serviced at regular intervals and have visible service schedule tickets attached. On the rare occasions you do suffer a problem we have a team of engineers available 24 hours a day. Our out of hours service is so good we attend many breakdowns for other national hire companies.

Site Specific: Each powerpod unit can be supplied with our very own battery charging station for safe charging and minimise trip hazards by removing leads over the floor. We can also supply a bunded refuelling station for safe refuelling of site drums  and plant utilising fuel contents of 2000 litre tank in powerpod. Pump unit is operated via  a timer push button to prevent pump being accidentally left running.
