November 2, 2012 at 5:18 PM
Ring Power Corporation is assisting with relief and recovery efforts across the Northeast in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy.
To date Ring Power has deployed in excess of 73 megawatts of Cat® Rental Power to peer Cat dealers and customers across the Northeast. The Cat sound attenuated generators were dispatched to Maryland, New York, Pennsylvania, Connecticut and New Jersey. The generators, known in the industry as “XQs,” are used around the world to provide temporary power. Some of the relief rental applications included: temporary shelters, hospitals, insurance claim offices and supermarkets. The Cat generators rented are also being used to power pumps in areas where flooding has occurred.
In addition to providing rental generator power, Ring Power has supported the relief efforts by providing more than five miles of portable power cable, factory-trained service technicians, transportation and project management services.
Ring Power has extended an offer to send rental personnel to other Caterpillar dealers, to assist with their local relief efforts.
