HVO generator hire

Choose HVO drop-in fuel as an alternative fuel option

Cut emissions, not performance with our HVO generators

Stay ahead of the curve with your sustainability strategy. Clean, efficient, and demonstrably better for the environment, HVO generators are an exciting step forward on the road to Net Zero.

What is HVO?

HVO (or Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil) is a type of biodiesel. It is produced through the hydro-processing of vegetable oils and fats. Free from oxygen, sulphur and aromatics, HVO biodiesel is classed as a greener substitute to FAME (Fatty Acid Methyl Esters), due to lower NOx emissions and improved storage stability. It’s a win-win.

HVO fuel can be used as a direct replacement, and ‘dropped in’ to any of our diesel generators. No special filters required. Switching can reduce harmful nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions – by up to 25%.

Reduce NOx emissions and particulate matter with HVO

HVO drop-in fuel is more clean burning than standard diesel. In our independent tests, results proved that it could; 

  • reduce NOx emissions by as much as 25%
  • reduce particulate matter by up to 42%
  • reduce carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions by up to 90%
  • reduce carbon monoxide (CO) emissions by up to 24%

So, whether you’re looking to take the first step towards Net Zero, working in a Low Emission Zone (LEZ) or maximising your corporate responsibility credentials, hiring a biodiesel generator brings many benefits.
