Power Generator

Power Generators are a valuable asset on any construction site. A diesel generator is the combination of a diesel engine with an electrical generator (often called an alternator) to generate electric energy. In construction, generators are used to sustain handheld electrical equipment like power tools, as well as providing lighting for works going on at night or in winter.Diesel or petrol generating sets are used in places without connection to the power grid or as emergency power-supply if the grid fails. This an invaluable on construction sites where power usage can be extremely high on big projects and the drain on local supply may be too great.
