UK rental company Charles Wilson Engineers (CW Plant) has ordered ten generator sets from SDMO Energy Ltd, the UK subsidiary of SDMO Industries.

The order is for a mix of ten 30 kVA, 40 kVA and 100 kVA Rental Compact sets fitted onto road tow trailers. The 30 and 40kVA units are powered by Mitsubishi diesel engines and the 100kVA genset uses a John Deere engine.

All the generators comply with European Stage III engine emission regulations that came into force for genets in January this year.

"The fact that these generators are Stage III compliant was a major factor in our decision to make this purchase," said Allan Skorka, manager of CW Plant's Instant Power division. "This substantial investment by us further endorses our policy of making available the most environmentally efficient and best quality equipment for our customers".

CW Plant rents a wide range of equipment from heavy plant to tools from 12 depots in the southern half of the UK, including sites in London, Liverpool, Birmingham and Bristol.

The sets are managed by a NEXYS controller which monitors oil pressure, coolant temperature, failure to start, over speed charging alternator fault and low fuel level.

SDMO Industries is based in Brest, France, and produces more than 100000 gensets each year. It has been part of the Kohler group since 2005.
