Site Generator Hire Across Devon and Cornwall

Cornwall Generators provide site generator hire, a secure and reliable solution with a backup generator supply contract. Increasing, power supply issues throughout the UK are becoming more of a problem, with Cornwall and Devon being no exception, power cuts are lasting for longer periods. Managing these prolonged power cuts effectively is often too much for a standard UPS.

We have a range of generators specific for the commercial trade including super-silenced, silenced, long-running tank options and hard–wire facilities. Fuel management for extended running periods ensures your systems can continue throughout the duration of the power shortage.
