UK diesel generator manufacturer YorPower has won a contract to supply and install a backup power system for online fashion retailer boohoo.com.
YorPower said it will manufacturer, assemble and install the 2,500kVA Cummins powered generator at the fashion firm’s new UK distribution centre in Preston, Lancashire.
The generator will be housed in a bespoke YorPower-designed container, the company said.
YorPower said initial testing of the backup system is “proceeding according to plan” and it will be handed over to the company next month.
Jim Riley, head of the YorPower projects team, said: “This has been an exciting project for us and clearly demonstrates our capability in the large projects sector, from design concept through to installation, site works, testing and commissioning and aftercare.”
YorPower launched its range of Cummins Powered Diesel Generators in 2013 featuring “improved power, torque, fuel economy and performance”.
