With ever increasing Industry lead time on the supply of diesel engines we have developed a range of approved NFPA and LPCB temporary engines. Prior to installation all hire engines undergo independent Kilowatt certification to ensure power rating is at least ten percent above pump absorption. In the majority of cases these can be fitted in one day resulting in minimum insurance increases and maximum fire cover.

The Installation includes;

  • Site survey prior to installation to ensure correct regulation is adhered to (NFPA/LPCB).
  • Failed engine removed from the mountings (disposal by arrangement).
  • Approved engine fitted to original mountings and laser aligned to pump coupling.
  • Interfacing of all existing fuel, cooling and exhaust lines.
  • Interfacing of control panel and all external alarms.

Weekly testing of the engine can be arranged to maintain fire records and where necessary, control panels and Fuel tanks can be supplied to support the hire engine. All work is carried out to current regulations, approved by all the major insurance companies and tested on full load for one hour during commissioning. A full commissioning report with performance figures is supplied upon completion.

Due to the influx in software driven controllers, and their subsequent downtime following failure we have now designed and introduced a hire auto start system that provides an independent pressure drop emergency start signal to the engine. This maintains site fire cover whilst repairs are undertaken.

The importance of good housekeeping with stored Diesel is higher than ever.
