Industrial & commercial diesel generator rental

Industrial and commercial energy solutions with Aggreko’s diesel generator rental

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

Our diesel generators for rental are 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 portable diesel generators automatically turn on and off to meet the site’s load demands. This means we only provide the power you need when using our diesel generator rental service, saving on fuel, emissions and costs.

Temporary and emergency power rental solutions – global expertise on your doorstep

Our team of experts are on hand 24 hours a day, every day to help deliver your project. From an emergency 20 kVA 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, The Tier 4 Final generator, which will 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.

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

With Aggreko´s Tier 4 Final generator rental, apart of our Greener Upgrades campaign, you can guarantee high performance while working towards your sustainability goals.

Industrial Diesel generators with industry-leading soundproofing and emission control designs

We design and build our generators at our ISO9001:2008 accredited manufacturing facility in Scotland. This means we’re continually finding ways to make them cleaner, quieter and more efficient. They’re also accredited, so you can be sure they meet the strictest safety and emission standards.

We’ve taken care of environmental concerns too, with industry-leading soundproofing and emission control that meets all standards, and fully bunded fuel tanks to eliminate leaks.

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.

Rent industrial diesel generators for reliable and continuous power – 24/7

Aggreko diesel generators utilize remote monitoring technology to ensure 24/7 equipment surveillance and maximize uptime.

From our Remote Operations Centre, our team of engineers keep watch on a range of parameters, including loads, maintenance requirements, warning and failure alarms and GPS locations. When equipment functions outside these boundaries, they respond quickly before the problem develops, or rapidly deploy resources to resolve the issue on-site.

Remove the hassle of fuel management

Leave the hassle of fuel management to us. Our competitively-priced fuel management service ensures you get regular fuel deliveries to keep your diesel generators for rental up and running.

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 – but other applications call for different generators. Natural gas generators, for example, 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.
