A-Plant Boosts Power Generation Fleet with 320 New SDMO Generators

Leading hire company A-Plant has placed an order with SDMO for a total of 320 Diesel Generators ranging from 10kVA – 300kVA. The new sets are all Tier 3A compliant and are currently being delivered throughout the A-Plant Service Centre network.

The SDMO order comprises 10kVA, 15kVA, 20kVA, 30kVA, 45kVA, 60kVA, 100kVA, 150kVA, 200kVA and 300kVA models and the investment is in the region of £3.3m. It is one of the largest single orders that A-Plant has ever placed with SDMO and the first time that A-Plant has purchased the larger generating sets above 60kVA from SDMO.

Within the A-Plant order is SDMO’s recently launched Diesel 10000 E Silence Generator, a super compact 10kVA Generator on wheels, supplying portable power for use on construction sites, at events and for sectors such as the rail industry. A-Plant was the first UK hirer to take the Diesel 10000 E into its fleet and took delivery of the first ever models to be produced at SDMO’s manufacturing plant in Brest, France.

Powered by a Kohler air-cooled industrial engine, the Diesel 10000 E has a soundproof enclosure which ensures ultra-low noise during operation. It has acoustic pressure levels of 81dB(A) at 1m and 69dB(A) at 7m and is also fully bunded, ensuring that any fuel or oil spills are completely retained within the canopy, thus preventing environmental pollution.

A-Plant’s Marketing Director Asif Latief said: “This year we have purchased a much larger spread of Generators from SDMO than ever before right up to 300kVA, which reflects our confidence in their quality, reliability, innovation and environmental benefits. All of the models we have purchased are compliant with two key parts of EU legislation, Tier 3A emissions and DEFRA oil pollution regulations, so they will enable our customers to meet their own environmental and sustainability objectives.”

A-Plant offers a vast range of temporary power solutions, including Generating Sets from 10kVA – 330kVA, as well as innovative products such as the Power Cube, a portable, maintenance-free, self-contained energy pod that stores and delivers clean, silent power and allows customers to make significant savings on their fuel bills and CO2 emissions.

A-Plant has a continual product enhancement and innovation programme, having made significant fleet investment over the past 12 months.
