Generator Servicing & Repairs

PPSPower have over 60 years’ experience in generator servicing, generators maintenance and generator repairs in the UK. We have engineers and support staff strategically placed throughout the UK to ensure we’ve got all regions covered and no enquiry is too far.

Our generator service teams will work with you to understand your needs and provide them with a tailored solution that is both cost effective and reliable. We’ll make recommendations based on what we think the right approach is for your business, as we know there isn’t a ‘one size fits all’ approach to generator maintenance.

When it comes to generators, we offer servicing for large ongoing generator contracts, where we will work with you to decide the best generator servicing package for your needs. This could be directly with Facilities Managers, Operations Managers or Business Owners. As well as ongoing generator maintenance contracts, we also offer services for one off generator repairs if you’re home or personal generator is broken and needs an engineer to come out and repair it. Usually, this is for larger gensets.


We have experience servicing generators of all brands from Perkins and Cummins to CAT, FG Wilson, Volvo and many more.


Our expertise is carried across numerous sectors, including Healthcare, Data Centres, Retail & Hospitality, Commercial Offices, Public Services and Manufacturing & Distribution, so it’s likely our team would’ve dealt with similar services before.

Frequently Asked Questions

 

How much does generator maintenance cost?

A: The cost for generator maintenance completely depends on the make, model and size of the generator. Costs are affected by the type and numbers of filters used, PPSPower always look to use original equipment manufacturers (OEM) parts, and time taken to fully service the generator. We offer both one off services as well as ongoing maintenance plans so prices do vary. Other factors such as location and if Load Banking is required can also affect pricing.


 

How long does a service take?

A: Again, the length of our service completely depends on the size. Our green service contract includes 56 checks: 26 checks on the engine, 24 checks on the battery and 6 checks on the fuel system. We also inspect the environment the generator is in. This can range between 2 and 6 hours on site.

 

Which brands or size generators do you service? 

A: PPSPower are vastly experienced in wide range of makes and models of diesel generators. This can range from single domestic generators to multi-site contracts that have multiple generators on each site. Generators that are set as back-up, synched, G99 compliant or being used as the prime source of power can be servicing and repaired by our engineering teams. 


 

Which locations in the UK can you travel to service?

A: We have strategically placed engineers throughout the UK. All major cities are covered from London to Edinburgh and beyond. We have even sent engineers to work abroad but they are all UK based.

 

How often should I get my generator serviced?

A: We recommend you should have a full generator service every 6 months or 400 hours running time (whichever comes first). For a back-up generator a minor service and a major service is the norm. During the major service this is where filters are changed. A regular check up from a dedicated generator engineer is essential, weekly and monthly checks on site are also important and we can support you with these checklists. When generators are running ‘prime’, typically 8hrs a day as the main power source we would recommend major servicing on a monthly basis.

Does a generator need to be serviced?

A: Yes, like any engine, your generator will need to be serviced to make sure when needed, it performs how it’s expected to. It’s just like you’d service your car after a certain amount of time/mileage. Not only do you need professional service schedule for your generator but you should also be making regular checks yourself, again, much like you would do with your own car. PPSPower can help you with a checklist for the on-site regular checks that should be made.
