Equipment Hire

It is impossible to predict issues arising with your electrical power system. Sometimes unanticipated events such as emergency outages, equipment failure or utility network upgrades occur. Although you can’t always anticipate these events, at Slaters we can offer you a temporary power solution should these unplanned or indeed planned situations arise.

Our fleet of industrial power equipment is available for hire, and is a timely, cost effective and flexible answer to your temporary power requirement. The equipment can be available immediately, integrated into your existing site set up and there is no large upfront investment needed. Unexpected downtime can be a major financial headache for your business, but the financial implications can be kept to a minimum if a temporary replacement is put in place allowing your business to run as normal in the meantime.

Industrial power equipment hire is also a perfect solution should your site need a power supply quickly – our comprehensive hire fleet can be despatched immediately depending on your individual requirements.

Our industrial power equipment hire fleet includes:

Power Transformers

Distribution Transformers

LV Transformers

HV Switchgear

LV Switchgear

Containerised Substations

SSI Hire Project – Press Release


  • Vital power distribution plant was needed to power the rebuild of the blast furnace at SSI.
  • Slaters Electricals’ rental fleet on the Redcar plant for approximately six months
  • Equipment included transformers and LV switchboards and also the expertise to install and commission the equipment
Slaters Electricals project manager Gary Atkinson said;
"It has been a great experience working with Balfour Beatty Engineering Services Ltd and we are very proud of being able to help restore the steel industry in the UK. Working to a tight deadline and with a limited access to the site, we successfully completed the task at hand, providing the much needed power distribution equipment to the site. The hiring of our specialist equipment is fast becoming a real growth area for the company, and examples such as our work with SSI, should help us establish our reputation. Also as a local business it also gives us great pleasure in the knowledge that on the day the plant begins production over 1,000 jobs will have been created in the North East area."
