Loadbank Hire

Aggreko's loadbank hire solutions are a reliable and practical means of power system testing. Load testing can prevent the risk of costly power system failures while maximising production during routine maintenance.

Applications for loadbank hires

Our resistive and reactive loadbanks can be hired for:

  • Maintenance testing of power equipment
  • Testing lower power factor simulation, frequency converters or full electrical system integration
  • Pre-commissioning and commissioning of newly installed renewables projects, including wind turbines and solar panels
  • Commissioning of newly installed power systems, including turbines, diesel generators, motors and uninterrupted power systems (UPS) in particular for critical sites such as data centres
  • Testing cooling systems, including chillers and air conditioning systems

Test your Power Supply

Aggreko has vast experience in finding the correct loadtest solution for any requirement. From a single 10 kW low voltage test, to a large multi-MW high voltage application - we provide a turn-key service including engineering, commissioning and operational support. In addition, we provide full loadtest documentation for quality auditing purposes, including method statements and schematics.

Benefits of Loadtesting

  • Loadbanks can be delivered and installed in the shortest possible time-frame to meet your needs.
  • Loadtesting can thoroughly prove power management systems and systems integration prior to go-live.
  • Thoroughly testing power systems before they are commissioned reduces the risk of problems during commissioning, project delays and potential contract penalties.
  • Hiring loadbanks eliminates the need for capital expenditure - it incurs no large downpayments or interest costs and preserves borrowing capacity, thus improving cash flow.
