Loadbank hire - the kit and the know-how

It’s vital to test your systems so you know they’re up to the job – whether you’re commissioning new generators or cooling systems, or need to carry out routine maintenance.  Loadbanks are used to test electrical power and cooling equipment. They simulate variable electrical load conditions in a way that can be accurately controlled, measured and recorded.

As each test is different, we offer a range of loadbank rentals and electrical load monitoring equipment that we match to your needs. Here are the generators that are available in our loadbank hire packages:

  • 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

We’ve designed our controls to make loadbank testing simple. You can do it remotely using a simple hand-held device, or on a laptop using our testing software, which allows you to collect test data – useful if you need to give your customers or partners proof of testing.

In addition, we provide full load test documentation for quality auditing purposes, including method statements and schematics.

From a single 10 kW low-voltage test, to a large, multi-megawatt, high voltage application, we’re always prepared with our loadbank hire service.

Testing and commissioning applications for loadbank hire

Our resistive and reactive loadbank rentals can be used for:

  • Maintenance testing of power equipment
  • Testing lower power factor simulation, frequency converters or full electrical system integration
  • Pre-commissioning and commissioning of newly installed renewables projects, including wind turbines and solar panels
  • Commissioning of newly installed power systems, including turbines, diesel generators, motors and uninterrupted power systems (UPS), in particular for critical sites such as data centres
  • Testing cooling systems, including chillers and air conditioning systems
