CAT power for hire

Terra Power Systems now has a rental power solution, with a new fleet of 30 generators on stand-by.

Many customers need temporary prime and standby power generation for their sites, so generators ranging from 30kVA to 500kVA are now available for hire, says general manager Power Systems Greg McCarthy.

“We offer short or long-term rental solutions for emergency, temporary, commercial and remote situations.

“Customers are turning to rental to power remote sites, new or expanded facilities, and to cover seasonal peak loads or any unscheduled downtime,” says Greg.

Rental generators are available nationwide, with Terra’s first customer a vineyard in Marlborough.

Customers can hire a generator for any length of time, from one day to many months, with the smaller units on trailers.

“Renting also gives you the benefit of trying Cat power before you buy,” says McCarthy.

In future, Terra Power Systems is also planning to offer transformers, compressors, load banks and fuel tanks.

If you’re interested in renting a generator, call your closest Power Systems territory account manager to discuss further options. Terra Power Systems has Conrad Owens in Auckland, Michelle Nicolai in Palmerston North or David Harrison in Christchurch.
