Standby gen­er­a­tor for Leeds Town Hall now in place

Yorkshire Post - Business - - BUSINESS -

Spe­cial­ist power providers York­shire Gen­er­a­tors of Thirsk re­cently won a pres­ti­gious con­tract to sup­ply and in­stall a standby gen­er­a­tor to Leeds Town Hall.

The 130 KVA unit may never be used but will be on per­ma­nent standby should there ever be a mains power cut at the Town Hall – an event which could have a cat­a­strophic ef­fect on the coun­cil’s abil­ity to carry out its ser­vices to the city.

Man­ag­ing direc­tor of York­shire Gen­er­a­tors, Richard Og­den, said: “We were re­ally pleased to be awarded the con­tract and to be able to sup­ply such a vi­tal piece of equip­ment to the coun­cil.

“Low­er­ing the gen­er­a­tor into po­si­tion was rea­son­ably straight­for­ward but we had to en­sure it was car­ried out with inch­per­fect pre­ci­sion.”

Robert Pyke, emer­gency plan­ning of­fi­cer for Leeds City Coun­cil was very sat­is­fied with the work car­ried out by the six-strong team.

He said: “The ground­works phase was sched­uled for two days, how­ever, the nec­es­sary work was com­pleted in just one day.

“The staff com­plet­ing this phase were knowl­edge­able, cour­te­ous and ad­hered to all health and safety leg­is­la­tion and the work it­self was fin­ished to a very high stan­dard. The gen­er­a­tor in­stal­la­tion phase (in­clud­ing the lift plan) was again car­ried out to high stan­dards.”

York­shire Gen­er­a­tors Ltd was set up by Richard Og­den and Steven Dresser more than 10 years ago.

Their goal was to cre­ate a com­pany that could pro­vide tem­po­rary or per­ma­nent power to a wide range of busi­nesses and they now of­fer a be­spoke so­lu­tion for any cir­cum­stance.

This could be mak­ing sure a fac­tory, farm, chem­i­cal plant or of­fice com­plex has the ap­pro­pri­ate emer­gency back-up in place when dis­as­ter strikes, to giv­ing event or­gan­is­ers the power they need to hold a wed­ding, race meet­ing or mu­sic festival away from mains elec­tric­ity.

From mo­bile self-pro­pelled light­ing tow­ers that will bring day­light to an area in the mid­dle of the night, to gen­er­a­tors that can power a village, the com­pany prides it­self on its at­ten­tion to de­tail to make sure that ev­ery ap­pli­ca­tion has suf­fi­cient power to run as smoothly and ef­fi­ciently as pos­si­ble, caus­ing min­i­mal dis­rup­tion to oth­ers.

With a com­pre­hen­sive selec­tion of new and used gen­er­a­tors avail­able for hire or for sale at any time, mainly SDMO, FG Wil­son and CAT, they can cater for any sit­u­a­tion; from a do­mes­tic re­quire­ment of as lit­tle as 6 Kva right through to a heavy-duty, ma­jor in­dus­trial plant need­ing 1250 Kva of guar­an­teed power.

The ser­vice doesn’t stop with the sale and hire of gen­er­at­ing equip­ment, the com­pany also of­fers in­stal­la­tion along with ser­vic­ing and main­te­nance pack­ages, in­clud­ing the sup­ply of con­trol equip­ment that make the gen­er­a­tors turn on au­to­mat­i­cally when needed, and switch off again when mains power has been re­sumed.

“Its all a mat­ter of sur­vey­ing and un­der­stand­ing each in­di­vid­ual ap­pli­ca­tion be­fore quan­ti­fy­ing the right amount of power needed for the job,” said Richard.

“Ev­ery job is dif­fer­ent and there­fore the spec­i­fi­ca­tion is tai­lored to suit each cus­tomer’s in­di­vid­ual re­quire­ments.”
