WE ARE PASSIONATE ABOUT OUR PLANET

SUSTAINABLE  GENERATOR HIRE

We approach the industry with a passion that sets us apart.

Sustainably delivered site power takes many forms. Here at Progen Power, we’re passionate about the planet and we work hard to support our clients and ensure we deliver the best service with the lowest environmental impact.

We understand the critical role that reliable power plays in various sectors, and we are committed to providing a sustainable solution that not only meets your power needs but also aligns with our environmental responsibilities.

Recognising the impact that traditional power generation methods can have on the environment. That's why we have taken the initiative to incorporate sustainable practices into our generator hire services. Our commitment to sustainability is evident in every aspect of our operations, you are not just getting a power solution; you are making a choice for a more sustainable future. Join us in our commitment to balancing power and sustainability, ensuring that your energy needs are met responsibly and with a focus on environmental stewardship.

Eco-Friendly Equipment
We offer a fleet of modern HVO, energy-efficient generators that adhere to the latest environmental standards. These generators are designed to minimize emissions and reduce their carbon footprint. By choosing our generators, you not only ensure a reliable power source but also contribute to a cleaner and greener environment.

We have many tools in our arsenal to help us achieve this:

A MODERN GENERATOR FLEET

Our fleet of modern generators is one of the most efficient units on the market. Not only do they have a great fuel consumption compared to other brands, they also have a much smaller footprint and weigh a lot less than other brands.

This enables us to fit more onto a lorry load, thus reducing the number of lorry loads needed to deliver your project.

We keep our generators well serviced which ensures they run smoothly and don’t produce excess exhaust smoke and unwanted fumes.

REMOTE MONITORING

Our entire Generator hire fleet is fitted with state-of-the-art remote monitoring systems. This enables us to remotely view live generator performance and produce performance reports retrospectively for clients.

The data produced by this system can be used to assist with planning future events and ensuring that the generators are not oversized for their application.

This system also enables us to remotely troubleshoot any issues encountered by our clients, therefore, reducing engineer vehicle mileage and reducing our CO2 footprint.

MANUAL DATA CAPTURE

When delivering power on managed projects, we also capture data manually every 24 hours. This takes the form of generator fuel consumption and kilowatt hours generated.

We use this to build a bigger picture of how the power infrastructure is performing. This data becomes part of a bigger report supplied to the client post-project to help with recording carbon footprint and fuel consumption.

HYDROTREATED VEGETABLE OIL - HVO

Our generators run solely on HVO (Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil) fuel. This relatively new fuel is produced from sustainably sourced vegetable oils and can be expected to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from your project by as much as 90% when compared to fossil fuels.

HVO fuel has a higher cetane number than traditional diesel fuel, which can improve engine performance and reduce engine noise.

HVO is derived from vegetable oils, waste oils, and animal fats, making it a renewable and sustainable fuel source. It can also help reduce reliance on fossil fuels and promote a more circular economy by using waste products as a fuel source.

BATTERY POWER

Why burn fuel when you don’t have to? 

Battery units store the energy produced by the generator. The units then communicate with our generators and command them to start and stop only when power is required to recharge the batteries. This can reduce the run time of your generators by up to 50% on some projects.

These silent-running battery units are perfect for projects where a quiet system is required during nighttime hours.

These clean technology battery systems produce no emissions at the point of use.

SOLAR POWER

Progen Power is currently working on an exciting solar array which can be used in combination with our battery storage units and our generators. In some circumstances, this combination will reduce generator run time by 100% with the generator only being required for emergency backup.

LED LIGHTING

We have made a significant investment in LED Lighting for our hire fleet. These modern lighting fixtures use a fraction of the power that would be required for certain other types of fixtures available on the market and still provide an impressive light output.

SUSTAINABLE HAULAGE

As well as operating our own lorries, we have also partnered with a UK-wide Haulage contractor to assist with transporting our equipment.

This grants us access to ULEZ-compliant lorries which will be in your local area already, therefore, cutting journey times in half and reducing the wheels on the road time significantly.
