UK genset maker powers ahead in the Middle East

March 2, 2018

UK diesel generator manufacturer JCB Power Products has confirmed it will start distributing another 400 gensets to the Middle East this month.


A Dubai-based temporary power and cooling solutions provider— Rental Solutions & Services (RSS)— has made a “multi-million pound” investment in a broad range of JCB generators, with power outputs from 60kVA up to 1MW, JCB said.


Under the terms of the deal, JCB will supply its RS models include G60RS, G125RS, G200RS, G300RS, G500RS, and the new G1000RS generators with 1MW power outputs and housed in “robust rental-specific containers”.


The new models will be deployed in construction and infrastructure projects, events and utility applications through RSS across the Middle East, JCB said. The RS rental generator is built with engines from Yanmar, John Deere, Volvo, Cummins, and JCB's own.


According to JCB, the RS range of rental-specific generators was launched last year, incorporating JCB’s LiveLink telematics system, which can monitor live location tracking and geofencing, along with remote diagnostics— as standard on all models above 60kVA.


Featured with the spark arrestors and Chalwyn valves to help protect the engine, the new model is fitted with plug and play socket panels to increases deployment time, which allow the generators to be used across multiple industries.


RSS firstly purchased more than 300 gensets from JCB in March 2017 under an $11 million order, and dispatched the generators across Oman, Saudi Arabia, and the UAE.


RSS Group’s 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.”
