UK rental company Hewden has bolstered its power generation business with the addition of new generators and ancillaries in an investment worth £2 million (€2.5 million).

It said the order included 120 SDMO generators ranging from 20kVA to 200kVA, as well as mains distribution units, bunded fuel tanks, trailers and cables. The company said the industrial shutdown sector was a major focus, with the investment following a series of new business wins in this sector.

Hewden senior product manager Kevin Warne said, “Whether it’s in the construction, events, infrastructure or industrial sector, reliability is critical to our customers. They need the reassurance that the power solutions provided are up to the task.

“At the same time they are looking for the quietest, cleanest, most sustainable solutions available and with this latest investment, we’re now able to provide that.

“There are very few hire firms that have the resource and range of solutions to meet the demands of industrial shutdown projects. Across some of the biggest sites, we have cranes, plant, lighting, power and on-site personnel, which is great to see.”
