SDMO Energy, the UK division of the French generator manufacturing giant SDMO Industries have confirmed an order for a fleet of generators from Speedy, the UK’s leading provider of equipment rental and support services.

This initial order is for thirty-two professional rental specification generating sets ranging from 80 to 500kVA, powered by either a John Deere or Volvo diesel engine. Each generator is equipped with a 3-way fuel valve for an external tank and a heavy duty air filtration system, for use in harsh environments such as demolition sites and quarries. The power is provided by the latest Leroy Somer AREP alternators and the fuel tanks are fully bunded, with leakage detection, making them environmentally safe. The complete unit is housed in a weather-proof Zintec treated enclosure with whisper-quiet noise levels. Advanced control and management is handled via either a Telys or Nexys controller.

These features and benefits ensure that each set is ideally suited to provide continuous, clean power, on construction sites, outside events, airports and a stable mains back-up for schools, factories and hospitals.

SDMO are now a confirmed approved supplier of power generation equipment to Speedy.

“We took a delegation of Speedy’s power generation experts to visit our manufacturing factory in Brest, France, so they could view our production processes first hand,” explained Clive Dix, the SDMO Energy general manager. “They were all very impressed with our facilities, remarking on we have successfully combined a rigorous production process with a unique flexibility to make sets to individual requirements, added Clive.”

“We work very closely with all our rental clients to ensure that we are always abreast with the changing demands of the rental markets, continued Clive, “therefore we listened very carefully to Speedy’s experts in order that we produced a line of sets that are completely in line with their customers’ requirements”, concluded Clive.

The sets are currently in production and will be shipped to Speedy within the first few weeks of 2011, ready for distribution throughout bySpeedy’s Power division in both the UK and overseas.
