Load bank hire, from 40-1000kW

A load bank is a device that simulates an electrical load, allowing generators to be tested under realistic conditions. Load banks are often used during commissioning tests, to verify that a generator can provide the required power output. They can also be used to test UPS systems, batteries, and other electrical equipment. Load bank testing is an essential part of maintaining a generator or other electrical system, and load bank hire provides the equipment and expertise necessary to do the job right.

A load bank is a critical piece of equipment for any business that relies on generators to power their operations. While they can be purchased outright, many businesses choose to hire or lease them on an as-needed basis. This allows them to avoid the expense of purchasing outright, and also eliminates the need for storage space.

At every stage of our supply chain, from raw material to finished item, we work with established, worldclass suppliers and implement our own uncompromising quality control processes to ensure that our products perform better and last longer.
