Kennards Generators, in Perth, has doubled the size of its fleet since opening less than a year ago and has expanded the range to include 200kVA units.
A recent shipment boosted quantities in all sizes, including 20kVA, 45kVA, 60kVA, 100kVA and 200kVA. The latest models have synchronisation capability and will load share, providing a great deal of flexibility. More trailer-mounted 100kVA and 60kVA sets are also available.
Kennards Generators is among a range of specialist equipment operations within the Kennards Hire Group. It can provide equipment for wide-ranging needs, including power network support, construction, mining, local government, armed forces and events. Assistance can also be provided to hospitals, hotels, restaurants, schools, shipping, data storage companies and other facilities and organisations.
The ready availability of generators in various sizes is a big attraction for Brett Hatchley, who operates B & S Concrete Cutting.
“They always have what I need, and it is good gear,” he said. Brett mostly hires trailer-mounted generators, because “we can pick them up in the afternoon and have them on the job at 6 o’clock next day”.
However, he needed to look for another option for a job he did on a Diploma Construction site in Murray Street, Perth. A 45kVA generator was lifted by crane to level three to run a hydraulic saw, used to cut a thick section of floor and a wall.
“The power on site was fully committed, and we needed a 32 amp source to run this saw, which cuts through concrete up to 700mm thick,” he said.
