Industrial Diesel Generator Rental

Industrial diesel generator rental

Aggreko’s diesel generator rental solutions for industrial and commercial needs

Our diesel generator rental packages are flexible and tailored to your needs (time frame, fuel, as well as your budget).

Our equipment is modular in design, so packages can be scaled up or down to give you the voltage and power you need – no more, no less. And because we offer a range of sizes, we can combine our diesel generators in different ways to deliver the exact amount of power for your site. Or if your power demands fluctuate, we’ll design a load-on-demand set-up where our modular diesel generators automatically turn on and off to meet the site’s load demands. This means we only provide the power you need, saving on fuel, emissions, and costs.

Our team of experts is on hand 24 hours a day, every day to help deliver your project. From an emergency 25 kW road-tow generator to a high-voltage commissioning project, we have the know-how to make things happen and can quickly and efficiently solve your issues with our diesel generator rental services.

We draw on our global network of power specialists to find the best solutions to the most complex jobs - whatever the sector or application.

Environmentally friendly greener generators for rent

We have launched a new emissions-saving solution, our Tier 4 Final diesel generators, which comply with the most stringent requirements set out by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for diesel engines. They operate in the same way as the cleanest car engines, lowering regulated emissions like NOx, particulate matter (PM), and CO. Also, CO2 emissions can be reduced by minimizing fuel consumption and utilizing environmentally friendly biofuels.

This new innovative fleet delivers a 98% reduction in the volume of particulates and 96% less NOx gas compared to the basic engines in older generators.

With our Tier 4 Final generators, we guarantee high performance while working towards your sustainability goals.

Frequently asked questions about diesel generators

How long can a diesel generator run continuously?

The major factor in how long your diesel generator can run continuously is fuel – the size of your tank, the speed of consumption, and how often you’ll need to refill. Our diesel generators are all equipped with tanks designed to keep you running for longer. And our remote monitoring system ensures you can always plan ahead.

Are diesel generators better and quieter than gas generators?

Diesel generators are renowned for their resilience and rugged nature, but they tend to be a louder option. In an industrial setting, this noise could be acceptable. Natural gas generators are significantly quieter, making them ideal for urban and residential settings. What makes Aggreko unique is the breadth and scale of our generator solutions and knowledge of your applications. Whatever you need, we’ll help you choose the right generator for you.

How efficient are diesel generators?

In terms of pure performance, diesel generators offer high levels of efficiency, usually around 40%. They tend to provide more power output per liter of diesel and, overall, will use lower levels of fuel than alternatives like gas generators. At the same time, the cost of fuels like natural gas tends to be lower on a per-unit basis – and natural gas generates power with fewer harmful emissions. At Aggreko, our range includes diesel, gas, and dual-fuel generators – so you can find the right match for your project or switch between fuel types with ease.

How much does it cost to run a diesel generator?

When you’re running a diesel generator, your primary expense will be fuel – and the exact consumption you can expect will depend on the size and power output of your generator. However, our diesel generators are all designed with efficiency in mind, maximizing the power you produce and driving fuel costs down. We also provide ongoing monitoring to ensure you’re operating at peak performance and avoiding the unexpected cost of sudden downtime or maintenance.

How reliable are diesel generators?

Other than the need for oil changes, diesel generators deliver the ultimate in uninterrupted reliability. Our rugged generators are all designed to withstand even the harshest conditions, delivering continuous operation on any scale.

Industrial and commercial diesel generator rental applications

  • Short-term project power – a common application of diesel generators
  • Industrial-scale power in even the harshest environments
  • Energy where noise isn’t a significant issue – for example, industrial settings
  • Reliably reinstating power where primary systems fail, everywhere from offshore rigs to remote communities
  • Providing power where space is too limited for the added footprint of a gas generator
  • The maximum in fuel efficiency and performance, where demand for power is high
