UK rental firm A-Plant has boosted its fleet of power generation equipment by placing orders worth almost £2m ($3.3m) for gensets manufactured by SDMO and Cummins.
The SDMO order totals 158 diesel gensets, comprising 10kVA, 15kVA, 20kVA, 30kVA, 45kVA and 60kVA models and the investment is in the region of £1.4m.
Within the order are 36 of SDMO’s brand new Diesel 10000 E Silence gensets, the first from the production line and the first to be delivered into the UK from SDMO’s manufacturing plant in Brest, France.
The Diesel 10000 E Silence is a 10kVA portable genset, supplying portable power for use on construction sites, at events and for sectors such as the rail industry. Powered by a Kohler air-cooled industrial engine, it has a soundproof enclosure which ensures ultra-low noise during operation. It has acoustic pressure level of 81dB(A) at 1m and 69dB(A) at 7m and is also fully bunded.
A-Plant has also placed an order totalling almost £450,000 with Cummins for 27 gensets, the bulk of which are for the new Cummins 100kVA unit, the C100D2R.
This latest addition to A-Plant’s rental fleet is ideal for use at construction sites, events, telecommunications and industrial applications and provides a prime rating of 100kVA at 50Hz with a ultra-low noise rating of 66.7dB(A) at seven metres.
