Generator Service & Maintenance

Generator Servicing & Maintenance

Standby generators play a key role in reducing the risk of encountering operational issues in the event of a power outage. In order to ensure that your standby generator remains available all year round, it is vitally important that it is well maintained.

Our tailored Service & Maintenance programmes provide you with complete reassurance that your equipment is well looked after and will support your site when required. Our plans are cost effective and completely customisable – we’ll work with you to create a maintenance schedule that works for you.

How our generator maintenance service works

At Vital Power, we work with our customers to help ensure their business is kept up and running even in the event of a mains power outage or other electrical failure. We offer a range of industrial generators – including leading brand names and custom-built generators – and a comprehensive range of service and maintenance offerings to make sure they’re always running at their best.

Our team will work with you to design a service programme that suits your site’s requirements; often this includes biannual generator servicing consisting of two service inspections per annum. Based on our extensive industry experience we recommend that on one of these service visits all generator engine filters and lubricants are replaced.

For a more comprehensive maintenance cover, service visits can be scheduled weekly, monthly or quarterly depending on your specific needs. We will take the time to understand your application and provide a service proposal tailored to you.
