One of the recent contracts won by Yorkshire Generators was to supply and install a standby generator to Leeds Town Hall, a contract of which the company is especially proud not least because it was not the easiest of jobs and they were competing against much larger companies.

MD of Yorkshire Generators, Richard Ogden said: “We were really pleased to be awarded this contract and to be able to supply such a vital piece of equipment to the council.

“Lowering the generator into position was reasonably straightforward for our six-strong team but we had to ensure it was carried out with absolute inch-perfect precision.”

The 130 KVA unit is on permanent standby for use should there ever be a mains power cut at the Town Hall – an event which clearly would have a very serious effect on the council’s ability to carry out its numerous vital services to the city.

A delighted Robert Pyke, emergency planning officer for Leeds City Council said: “The groundworks phase was scheduled for two days – however, the necessary work was completed in just one day. The Yorkshire Generators team completing this phase were knowledgeable, courteous and adhered to all health and safety legislation and the work itself was finished to a very high standard.

“The generator installation phase (including the lift plan) was again carried out to high standards.”

Richard added:  “It is all a matter of surveying and understanding each individual application before quantifying the right amount of power needed for the job. Every single job is different and so the specification must be exactly tailored to the customer’s individual needs.”
