Our specialty are diesel generator rentals units from 5 kilowatt to 1 megawatt. We boast Vancouver Island’s largest fleet of trailer diesel generator units

 250 KVA Rental Generator
High Capacity Diesel Generator Rental Units on skids.

These powerful diesel generator units have been engineered to run for extended periods without requiring re-fueling. Our skid mounted diesel generator incorporates a large capacity fuel cell enabling some units to run for extended periods of time before needing fuel. Needing fewer fuel drops saves you money and decreases your risk of losing power. Skid mounted generators also offer the advantage of being more difficult to steal from the job site.

Above are just a few examples of times when renting temporary diesel power generating equipment might be needed.

So why rent? Well, there are a lot of reasons renting can seem like a better choice, the most obvious being associated cost savings. When it doesn’t make sense to invest capital into a generator package for a 3 – 6 month project when you can rent a diesel generator package for less than a tenth of the cost of owning one? The same can be said for the power distribution equipment needed to step the voltage up or down with your diesel generator power solution – along with the transfer switches, transformers, panels, protection, cable and other equipment your job might require.

Howard prides himself on being pretty picky and with his 40 years in the business, he knows what works best.

“We have our own paint booth paint and have our own painters and structural work and everything is done in house.

We like to use local businesses like ‘Shop Coastal Welding’ they do all our enclosures and we use a local powder coat company ‘Billy Powder Coat’ for all our powder coating.
Whatever we can do we like supporting local companies and use them whenever we can, but we are always looking for the best and sometimes we just have to go outside the community to find the talent we need to ensure the best possible power solution.”
