Dubai-based Rental Solutions & Services (RSS) has ordered more than 300 JCB generators in a deal said to be worth £9 million (€10.45 million).
The order – which comprises of JCB’s newly-launched range of RS generators – is the manufacturer’s biggest order of the year so far.
The first five units are already in service in Oman, supported by JCB’s dealer Muscat Overseas Group. They are being used by a global oil and gas company which needed urgent standby power to support their operations.
RSS offers rental generators across the Middle East, providing power for construction sites, large infrastructure developments, and petrochemical facilities. The company was established in 2007 as a global provider of rental power, temporary cooling and mobile water solutions.
Garry McMahon, RSS operations director, said, “We have a choice of generator suppliers in the Middle East, but we chose JCB Power Products as its range is the best rental selection we have seen.
“The brand presence of JCB in our region also ensures that our customers know we are working with quality equipment and providing the best possible back-up.”
The RS range will span from the smaller 60kVA outputs to the maximum 500kVA – enough to power 15,000 homes. They feature JCB’s LiveLink technology for power telematics system, allowing customers to actively manage fleet utilisation, service scheduling and remotely diagnose faults and installation issues.
Meanwhile, Jonathan Garnham, JCB Power Products managing director, said, “We are delighted to have won our biggest export order of 2017 from one of the Middle East’s biggest providers of standby power.
“JCB Power Products launched its RS rental range just a year ago and it is proving extremely successful in a very competitive global market where JCB provides unrivalled service and support.”
