Diesel Generator Rental

Aggreko is the industry leader in generator rental and provides containerised and canopy diesel generators to customers across Africa. In addition to our high-quality rental diesel generator sets, we offer tailored technical solutions to meet customers’ requirements and excellent service support through our team of highly skilled engineers.

The reliability of our generators helps to prevent losses associated with issues such as power outages, maintenance activities, peak shaving situations, project execution delays and variations in seasonal demand.

Aggreko engineers operate to the highest quality, health, safety and environmental standards and can handle any power crisis. This capability ensures that customers have an uninterrupted power supply from Aggreko diesel generator sets.

Outstanding quality and performance

Safety is paramount for Aggreko, so every diesel generator (DG set) set that we rent out is protected by on-board moulded case circuit breakers and adjustable residual current devices for sensitive earth-fault protection.

Environmental considerations are addressed by integral design features such as class-leading sound attenuation, fully bunded, integrated fuel tanks and optimised engine emissions. These features exceed the standards in all current or pending legislation.

All Aggreko rental equipment benefits from a stringent regime of pre- and post-hire inspection and load testing to complement our comprehensive on-site servicing.
