Genny Hire buys ‘Rig-Safe’ Trime lighting towers

Genny Hire Limited, the Aberdeen based hirer of power generation, lighting towers and associated equipment have begun a process to upgrade their fleet of lighting towers, with the purchase of ten X-ECO LED sets from Trime UK Limited.

These X-ECO LED units were fitted with Chalwyn valves and spark arresters making them ideally suited for use on refinery, petro-chemical sites and any other environments where ‘rig-safe’ specifications are a prerequisite.

Genny Hire first saw the X-ECO LED at the Executive Hire Show Scotland and completed their research online. They then compared the Trime X-ECO LED sets with other two models currently on the market. Genny Hire finally opted for the Trime product, citing the high specifications of the machine along with swift delivery times and the very prompt attention given by Andrew Owen, Trime UK’s northern sales manager.

Lorna Clark from Genny Hire said, “We aim to hire these lighting towers into refinery and petro-chemical sites. This is an area of our business we are seeking to develop and as the oil and gas sector market becomes busier in Aberdeen again, we will have the correct specification of machines readily available.”

She added, “We are very impressed with the service we have received from Trime. They handled the initial sales enquiry with enthusiasm and their service department came up to our depot to complete a training course. Spare parts are always available from stock, which means we can maintain our fleet at all times.”

The X-ECO LED has a number of environmental qualities and safety aspects. The set is fitted with the AMOSS safety system, which automatically lowers the mast if the lighting set is moved whilst the mast is still erected. The complete unit features an external emergency stop button, a fully bunded fuel tank, four height adjustable stabilisers and site levels for guidance during deployment. The energy saving LED lamps will work for up to 2000 hours without replacement.

Genny Hire was incorporated in December 2008. They rent generators, lighting towers and associated equipment throughout North East Scotland. Their services are readily available 24 hours per day, 7 days per week on a call out basis.

The Trime Group has over 50 years of experience in the development and marketing of environmentally sustainable lighting sets for the rail, off-shore, event, construction and rental markets. Trime UK is headquartered in Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire; their manufacturing plant is based near Milan, Italy.
