The generator sweet spot

The generator sweet spot
In cycling, sweet spot training involves placing the body under sustained stress, but not so much stress that it cannot be held for a long duration. It can be defined in relation to a percentage of the cyclist’s functional threshold power and aims to increase the cyclist’s fitness, while getting the most out of their time. Here Clinton Noble, Diesel Generator Sales Manager at Finning UK & Ireland power systems, explains how generators, like cyclists, have a sweet spot that can mean operators get the best out of their investment.

There are plenty of scenarios where a regular rig won’t work, making restricted access drilling the perfect option. It’s natural to think of busy towns and cities when considering a site with restricted access, but this form of drilling is frequently used in more rural settings too. If it’s difficult to access the site, then a specialist, restricted access rig is the answer.
