2013 – Off Shore Wind, Barrow in Furness

Power-Rite had been contacted by Scottish Power as their current supplier could not provide a suitably sized diesel generator. The requirements were very specific, 15no 15kVA 3Phase generators, maximum weight 800kg, each and dimensions of no larger than 1.9L x 900W x 950H. This was due to the contractor C Wind having to transport these by boat to each individual wind turbine. The Atlas Copco QAS18 ticked all the boxes required and the next question was how soon could these be on site at Barrow in Furness.

The first load of 8 generators arrived the following day and it took C Wind 3 -4 days to transport and put the generators into position and the final 7 were dispatched the following week.

“If it wasn’t for the speedy response of Power-Rite the build schedule would have seriously been delayed and our company would have suffered financial penalties. Power-Rite really saved the day with excellent service, products and communication, I would recommend these guys to anyone” – Danny Shaw, C Wind Ltd
