On-site power with Algeco generator hire

Power when and where you need it 

The advanced range of generators for hire 

Algeco has partnered with a leading provider of generators so you can hire all the power you need, wherever you need it, nationwide. We can cater for anything from small to very large sites, and you can choose traditional fuel-powered systems or the latest battery-powered hybrid generator sets for reducing environmental impact. 

When you hire generators through Algeco, you can expect: 

  • A team that is dedicated to finding the right generator solution for your project, site or business and providing industry-leading customer service 
  • Generators for hire from 20kVA to 1260kVA, with cables and a distribution board (MDU) 
  • 60-hour runtime as standard 
  • Smart telemetry included as standard 
  • Turn-key solutions for sites of any size 
  • Unlimited hours and fuel management available as options 

Lower-emission generator sets

As well as conventional diesel portable generators for hire, we have plenty of options for reducing your environmental impact, including Stage V-compliant generators, HVO-fuelled generators and hybrid generator sets, consisting of a generator and a battery. Battery storage units are rated at 24Kva and 48Kva, and make it easy to provide power continuously, without necessarily having to run the generator. If combined with renewable energy sources, the battery storage units allow you to minimise emissions. 

Our hybrid generator sets are also ideal for brownfield or urban sites where noise pollution might disturb the local community or be in breach of local noise guidelines.
