Active Hurricane Season Keeps Generator Rental Team Busy

October 22, 2020 at 10:21 AMRing Power

In September, for only the second time ever, the Atlantic hurricane season used up its entire list of names and began using the Greek alphabet for storm names. This happened only once before, in 2005. 

The record-breaking hurricane season has kept the Florida generator rental team working around the clock to restore power to critical operations in storm-affected areas across the Southeast.  

To date, more than 59 megawatts of power and more than 16 miles of cable has been deployed to storm ravaged areas.

Some of the relief rental applications have included supermarkets, hospitals, law enforcement agencies, FEMA, insurance claim offices, temporary shelters, gas stations, car dealerships, and more.  

The PSD Rental team has worked endless hours to maximize the full potential of Ring Power’s power generation fleet.  The tempo in which everyone on the team operates is a sight to be witnessed, said Steve Ferlita, VP – Used Sales & Rental Manager. Our power is lifesaving because we are restoring the communities to some sense of normality.”  

The logistics of knowing what equipment is needed, what is available, and moving it around the country can get complicated. Thankfully, Ring Power has made significant investments over the past year in developing a connected fleet. Today more than 85 percent of the generator rental fleet is connected.  

Thanks to the investments made in developing a connected fleet, the Power Systems Rental team now has virtual access to control the fleet from anywhere in the world. Through a web application, the team can track equipment as it moves to its destination, view its location and performance once it is operating, and remotely troubleshoot any issues if they arise.  

A separate web based software program exclusive to Cat dealers allows the team to view available dealer assets across the country, incorporating storm data to predict where equipment will be needed. 

Of course, data can only take you so far. It takes a team of dedicated rental professionals to make it all happen.

Power Systems Rental Ready for Hurricane Season

July 11, 2019 at 8:46 AMRing Power

The Atlantic hurricane season began June 1. For 2019, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) predicts a likely range of nine to 15 named storms, of which four to eight could become hurricanes, and two to four of them, major. 

Though the season is just getting started, our Florida generator rental team works year-round to ensure customers are prepared should disaster strike. 

There are many types of generators. They come in all shapes and sizes, with different voltages, suitable for a wide variety of power needs and facility requirements.

When utility power is interrupted or a temporary rental generator is required for the application, many factors must be taken into account before connecting a generator to the facility. The utility power must be isolated, the correct voltage identified, phase rotation determined, proper grounding and ventilation established, etc. To help address some of these concerns, the PSD Rental team provides free site surveys throughout the year to ensure every aspect of a customer’s temporary power application is documented. This helps minimize downtime and keeps everyone safe. 

“Our primary concern begins with safety for all parties, especially when renting a temporary generator,” said Steve Ferlita, Vice President – Power Systems Division Used Sales, Rental & GPP Manager.

To prepare for the diverse power requirements of customers within Ring Power’s territory, Power Systems Rental is constantly investing in new and pre-owned equipment to augment the generator rental fleet.  Currently more than 30 generator are being refurbished, and new Cat XQ rental generator inventory is expected to arrive soon.

Throughout hurricane season, PSD rental will continually communicate with other Cat dealers and plan with them to ensure our customers’ needs are met should the need arise to supplement any additional rental requirements.
