Its second purchase of JCB Power Products’ generators in the last 12 months, having taken a range of rental generators from 20kVA to 500kVA in 2017.
The multi-million pound deal includes a broad range of generators, with power outputs from 60kVA up to 1MW. The RS rental generators include the RS models G60RS, G125RS, G200RS, G300RS, G500RS and new to the RSS fleet is the addition of a range of G1000RS generator models, with power outputs of 1MW and housed in robust rental-specific containers. This range of generators will be joining the growing RSS generator fleet and will work across construction and infrastructure projects, at major events and in utility applications across the Middle East.
JCB Power Products Managing Director Adam Holland said: “This major deal is a fantastic start to the year for JCB Power Products and a brilliant testament of the quality and specification of the JCB rental generator range. We are thrilled to receive a second order from RSS, a rental company which continues to go from strength to strength.”
The RS range of rental-specific generators was launched last year, incorporating JCB’s LiveLink telematics system as standard on all models above 60kVA. RSS now have over 250,000 running hours on LiveLink for Power, which is monitoring live generator performance; including location tracking and geofencing, along with remote diagnostics; which is reducing engineer call-outs and improving first time fix rates to maintain their fleets’ operation and utilisation across the Middle East.
To meet stringent rental emissions requirements in the Middle East, the RSS fleet are all powered by Stage IIIA compliant engines. For increased safety the new models include spark arrestors and Chalwyn valves to help protect the engine, and to increase deployment time the range is fitted with plug and play socket panels to allow the generators to be used across a number of industries.
RSS Group Operations Director Garry McMahon said: “Following the purchase of a range of JCB rental generators last year, the business has developed dramatically over the last 12 months.
We have ambitious plans to continue to maximise on the rental opportunity across the Middle East and JCB’s rental generator range plays a pivotal role in growing our sales coverage with the most versatile and flexible solutions to fit the Middle East rental market.”
The new equipment will begin to arrive in March and will be distributed throughout the year to support customers across the Middle East.
