Merlin Power Management has expanded its rental fleet capabilities with the introduction of single, large generators, up to 2MVA, for deployment throughout the UK. A leading provider of power support services, Merlin arranges rapid deployment of these large generators together with a it’s range of peripheral services that include cabling, fuel systems, fuel management and technical and 24/7 on site engineering support.
These standby power systems can also be supplied and installed in parallel to cater for larger power requirements and to increase flexibility in the event of sudden power disturbances. Generators ranging from 80kVA to the 2MVA have been strategically positioned around the UK so that Merlin can rapidly deploy the sets and accessories to site within a four-hour window of receiving the emergency call.
In addition, the company has also expanded its services to provide these generators and power critical services for companies who require standby power during a planned shutdown. These include the decommissioning and re-commissioning of existing equipment, all ancillary electrical work as well as the supply of a temporary standby generator and on site engineering support.
Providing standby power during a planned shutdown is particularly important for a company’s such as Data Centres, Telecomm Networks and Research Facilities etc., where a loss of power could be catastrophic. In such cases companies and organisations will fit a UPS to support their IT infrastructure and essential business critical systems. However by renting a generator from Merlin along with the company’s support and engineering infrastructure enhances the protection of critical data and services.
“Our new generators and ‘Planned Shutdown Services’ underline Merlin’s approach of going that ‘extra mile’ to meet growing customer demand”, says James Hawksworth, Rental Manager at Merlin Power Management. “This is particularly important in the current challenging economic times where speed of response and a trusted, reliable service are a must-have item on any customer’s shopping list”, he concluded.
Merlin Power Management also offers a range of other services that include power analysis and consultancy, relocation and refurbishment, rental of generators and UPS, thermal imaging, fixed wire testing, refuelling and installation services as well as generator customisation and decommissioning. It also provides load bank testing, the installation and repair of bulk fuel storage as well as the routine and emergency maintenance of generators, UPS, rectifiers and DC batteries.
