We regularly provide generator hire as an emergency backup solution for IT systems, hospitals, food and retail companies, banks and pharmaceuticals. One of the top questions we’re asked is – how long does it take to install an emergency generator? This is a fair question as we understand that every minute of lost power can cost your business significantly.

Rapid Response

The time it takes to restore power to your site with one of our temporary generator hire packages, will begin from your very first call with us. We have engineers on-hand 24/7, 365 days a year so we’re always able to respond to your needs and act fast to dispatch a generator to you.

Getting To You

Where you’re based will also be a factor in determining how long it takes for your generator to arrive. At Templant, our generators London team use an in-house transportation fleet so that we don’t need to rely on a third-party service to dispatch your power to you. Our Essex depot is based about 20 miles outside of central London which makes us well-placed to serve businesses within the capital and surrounding home counties. For this reason, our response rate is second to none during emergency situations.

Type of Generator

Templant offers a wide range of generators from 13kVA to 1250kVA which are suitable for emergency usage. Generally speaking, the generators which offer lower power can be quicker to set up than the stronger units, but this isn’t a definitive rule. When choosing a generator, you may also need accessories including distribution panels and cables, all of which we can supply as part of your bespoke hire package.

Site Layout

The type of generator you require may also be affected by the logistics of your site. We supply both road-towable and static generators for hire, but we’ll need adequate space to position these into. Access to your site may affect the amount of time it takes to set up your generator, but rest assured we will always find a suitable solution to get your power in place, even when space is tight.

Health and Safety Considerations

Even in an emergency situation, health and safety considerations must always be taken into account to ensure that compliance regulations are met in full. Our engineers are experts in carrying out quick but accurate assessments to ensure that your generator placement does not pose a risk to your site or those who occupy it. We’ll take into account the ground upon which the generator will sit, or environmental considerations including temperature control and whether there might be a flood risk.
