As Chancellor George Osborne signed off on the largest new gas field in the UK North Sea for a decade last month, the deal spelt good news for companies supplying generator rentals and sales for the new energy project.
The Culzean field off Scotland is expected to produce enough gas to meet 5% of UK demand by 2020 and highlights the importance of the North Sea gas and oil field for British business. Moreover, given the hazardous conditions in the North Sea, all rigs at some point require generator rentals to help with sudden power outages.
Woodlands Generators provide such essential power through their emergency generator rentals capability. Our range of generators for hire is up to 2,200kVA. Indeed, recently a 2,100kVA rental generator to Offshore Specification provided essential power on an emergency call-out basis on an Offshore Platform Support Vessel (PSV), while one of its permanent generators was out of commission and and under repair.
To illustrate the smooth running of the service, Woodlands generator rental service ensured the generator was delivered, installed and commissioned in Aberdeen Harbour within eight hours of receiving the order from the customer.
The diesel generator supplied was powered by a modified Caterpillar 3516 engine, set to run at 60Hz frequency, as required by the vessel.
The 265ft PSV has a crew of 22 and services various platforms of the North Sea Oil Fields.
This contract required a team of our expert engineers to carry out the installation and commissioning of the diesel generator on the vessel.
At Woodlands, the generator rental is a 24/7 Emergency Generator Hire Solutions that ensures power reaches our customers wherever and whenever they require it.
We have developed this generator rental service over many years and unlike many companies, Woodland Generators is on stand-by 24/7, 365 days a year to deal with emergency generator rental and hire requirements.
We also never switch to a mobile phone due to the risk of losing signal and reaching a voicemail; in an emergency you will get straight through to the rental office that will start the call out process.
That’s why we’re one of the most reliable companies for diesel generator rental in Europe.
