A reliable source of power is critical when living on a remote farm in Howatharra, Western Australia. Brett Gannon is a grain farmer and owner of the Suncity Motorcycles store based in Geraldton. He purchased an Atlas Copco QES 40 42kVA diesel generator.
“We live 5 hours from Perth and unfortunately we lose power on the property from time to time”, says Brett.
“One time I lost power for three days which was a real blow to my grain farming operation,” he adds “The lack of power affected the pumps used across various applications on the farm as well as in our home.”
Brett realised that he couldn’t rely solely on the local electricity supplier and that he needed a standby power solution.
Brett contacted Redstar Equipment to develop a power plan. The Redstar Equipment team presented Brett with different options for the sizes and types of diesel generators available.
“Redstar Equipment factored in all of my requirements and I decided to purchase the Atlas Copco QES 40 diesel generator,” says Brett.
He adds “I could’ve bought a smaller and cheaper generator but I wanted something that would be able to power my whole property.”
“I wanted to be able to power the farm and the house without having to go around and turn lights on and off all of the time.”
The Atlas Copco QES diesel portable generator range has taken a major step forward for easy installation, high performance, maintenance efficiency and reduced noise. The QES 40 has 42kVa of power and 9.8L/h (100% load) fuel consumption.
Atlas Copco generators offer peace of mind with solutions that combines low cost of ownership, reliable performance and risk-free operation.
