Dubai group in record 300 JCB generator deal

DUBAI, March 28, 2017

Dubai-based Rental Solutions & Services (RSS), which provides power for construction sites and large infrastructure developments, has bought more than 300 JCB generators in a deal worth more than $11 million.

Generator manufacturer JCB Power Products said the order is the biggest yet for its newly-launched range of RS generators specifically designed and manufactured in the UK for the global rental sector.

The first five units have already been pressed into service in Oman supported by JCB dealer Muscat Overseas Group. They are being used by a global oil and gas company which needed urgent standby power to support their operations.

RSS operations director Garry McMahon said: "We have a choice of generator suppliers in the Middle East, but we chose JCB Power Products as its range is the best rental selection we have seen."

"The brand presence of JCB in our region also ensures that our customers know we are working with quality equipment and providing the best possible back-up," he stated.

JCB Power Products MD Jonathan Garnham expressed delight at winning its biggest export order of the year from  one of the Middle East’s biggest providers of standby power.

"JCB Power Products launched its RS rental range just a year ago and it is proving extremely successful in a very competitive global market where JCB provides unrivalled service and support," he noted.

McMahon said RSS offers rental generators across the Middle East, providing power for construction sites, large infrastructure developments, and petrochemical facilities.

The company was established in 2007 as a global provider of rental power, temporary cooling and mobile water solutions.

According to him, the British-built generators will span from the smaller 60 kVA outputs to the maximum 500kVA – enough to power 15,000 homes.

They all feature JCB’s market-leading LiveLink for Power telematics system, allowing customers to actively manage fleet utilisation, service scheduling and remotely diagnose faults and installation issues, stated McMahon.

The generators will be used across the Middle East including Oman, UAE, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and Qatar. They will be supported by JCB’s extensive network of dealers in the Middle East.

JCB Power Products employs more than 200 people and has its headquarters in Stafford, UK as well as a production facility in Newtown, Wales and New Delhi (India).-TradeArabia News Service
