Generator Asset Recovery and Equipment Removal Services

Asset Recovery and Removal ServicesMany industries employ emergency generators for backup and standby power needs. These industries range from critical operations (hospitals, data centers, telecom towers, etc.) to non-critical operations (manufacturing plants, commercial buildings, farms, distribution warehouses and more). Many operational requirements can result in an emergency generator upgrade to new or larger equipment. 

We purchase generators (no longer needed from upgrades) and the ancillary used power generation equipment that goes with it like tranformers and automatic transfer switches. These range from indoor applications in facilities to outdoor generators in sound attenuated enclosures.  We also purchase power generation equipment that was never put into service for any reason.
