Our sister company, Generator Power was contracted to provide a temporary power generator to run a new phone mast in Portsmouth. But site restrictions and very wet ground meant that the generator could not be installed close to the mast.
To allow the mast to be powered from a distance, Generator Power installed a 20kVA twinpack, with acoustic panelling to reduce noise levels, at the bottom of the designated area, connected with a 300m length of cable.
But after residents requested the generator be moved elsewhere, Trackway Solutions were engaged to find a way to relocate the generator and equipment closer to the mast, without disturbing the site.
After consulting our customer and the site provider, we devised a solution to work around the vehicle access restrictions and move the generator closer to the telephone mast.
It was essential that there was no damage caused to the site during relocation or installation, so Trackway Solutions supplied and installed an access road of aluminium trackway which allowed the equipment to be moved without disturbing the ground underneath.
A twinpack generator was supplied to provide additional resilience due to access restrictions to the site. And to ensure the hire went as smoothly as possible, the required amount of fuel was calculated and three 3,000 litre fuel tanks were supplied.
We also left six trackway panels on site for the duration of the hire to prevent any land damage being caused during generator servicing and fuel transfers.
