Load Bank Rental

Load Test Solution

Load Banks and Accessories for Power Equipment Testing

Prevent the risk of costly power failures and maximize efficient production during routiine maintenance

Our load bank rentals range in size from 36kW to 6,000kW, with various power-factor testing capabilities. Compatible transformer rentals are also available, and the units are durable and weatherproof. Up to five units can be linked and operated from one control panel. Our smaller units are portable and compact enough to fit through a standard door.


The kit and the know-how

Our team of power specialists have extensive experience delivering load testing projects for a range of sectors, including manufacturing, renewables, data centres and shipping.

As each test is different, we offer a range of load banks and supporting rental equipment that we match to your needs, including:

  • AC loadbanks from 100 kW ‘resistive only’ to 6000 kVA combined ‘resistive and reactive’ in single or multiple units
  • DC loadbanks capable of accepting voltages up to 500 V Multi-tap transformers fitted with high voltage switchgear and protection as standard

Why rent and load-test with Aggreko

  • Digitalised load testing with essential controls controls to make testing simple.
  • Incremental digitalised step loads at 1kW increments, giving you more precision and control
  • You can do it remotely using a simple hand-held device/laptop allowing you to test with close proximity to generator's control panel for generator testing
  • Our testing software allows you to collect test data – useful if you need to give your customers or partners proof of testing.
  • Full load test documentation for quality auditing purposes, including method statements and schematics.
  • Safety assurance with weatherproof enclosures. Rain or shine, the test continues with higher productivity.
