Our power solutions are built following industry-leading design.

At Aggreko, we’re constantly innovating our industrial power generators, striving to make them cleaner, quieter, and more efficient. All our generators are accredited, so you can be sure they meet the strictest safety and emissions standards.

We design and build our generators at our ISO9001:2008 accredited manufacturing facility in Scotland. We house our diesel generators in either a soundproofed canopy or enclose them in custom-designed 20-ft standard ISO containers – for enhanced security, durability, and easy transportation by road, rail, sea, or air.

We’re committed to supporting environmental concerns, too. That’s why our power generation range features industry-leading soundproofing and emissions control, with fully bunded tanks to eliminate leaks. And we’re proud to offer the largest hire fleet of low-emission Tier 4F generators, supporting you on the path to net zero.

Tier 4F Final diesel generators

Specifically designed to cut down on harmful pollutants, our Tier 4F generators comply with the most stringent requirements set out by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for diesel engines.

They operate the same way as the cleanest car engines, limiting carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxides, and particulate matter to provide low carbon temporary power. The innovative new fleet will deliver a 98% reduction in the volume of particulates and 96% of the NOx gases expelled compared to the basic engines in older generator rentals.

Fuel Flex 400 kW generators

With our new natural gas generator, the Fuel Flex 400 kW, you can get the ultimate fuel efficiency with the flexibility and performance you've come to expect from Aggreko.

Powered by the high-horsepower Waukesha H24 engine, the Fuel Flex 400 kW delivers the highest-density power with the smallest footprint: a high-speed reciprocating gas engine with exceptional fuel efficiency and unparalleled reliability.

FAQs about Aggreko generators

What are the different types of industrial generators?

From Tier 4F compliant generators to large-scale power generators for the most demanding settings, there are numerous types of industrial generators. Generally, these will be grouped by the kind of fuel they use–from natural gas to diesel and hybrid, dual-fuel energy solutions.

What is the difference between diesel and gas generators?

The most obvious difference between diesel and gas generators is the type of fuel they use. However, they both offer different strengths and weaknesses. Generally, diesel generators are more resilient and durable, although diesel costs can be high. Gas generators are more sustainable and energy efficient, reducing your emissions and helping you meet your Energy Transition goals.

How efficient are diesel generators?

Burning diesel as a fuel source causes harmful emissions to be released, but Aggreko’s innovative line of diesel power generators are some of the most efficient in the industry. Our focus on engine quality and ongoing remote monitoring help maximize fuel efficiency, so you can reduce your fuel costs while minimizing your environmental impact.

How efficient are gas generators?

Natural gas generators are generally less fuel-efficient than diesel, but this is offset by the affordability of gas compared to diesel and, of course, a significant reduction in your environmental impact. At Aggreko, we invest in the industry’s most innovative gas generators to deliver both efficiency and sustainability.
