Generator specialist, DTGen, has been appointed to supply and install a new standby power system at Greggs PLC’s new, state-of-the-art Balliol Park depot in Longbenton, Newcastle-Upon-Tyne.
The 1,650kVA generator is being installed in a new plant room complete with attenuation, exhaust silencer and fuel tank, as part of Gregg’s strategic expansion plans. The upgraded Balliol Park site concentrates on producing Greggs’ signature sausage rolls and pasties for all shops.
Mark Taylor, DTGen – Project Manager in Northern England, said: “We have worked with many major household names in the food and retail sectors and continue to support these vital industries with robust, reliable technology and expertise to ensure backup power is supplied when it is needed most. A mains power failure can have catastrophic consequences in the food manufacturing industry, and our resilient solutions minimise that risk.”
DTGen delivers power solutions to customers across a broad spectrum in industries including hospitals, data centres, distribution centres, banking and utilities, and works with consultants, end users and contractors from initial design to project completion.
The company also recently announced the appointment of David Oates as its new Managing Director.
With 20 years of experience in the generator industry, Oates joins from Pramac – Generac where he was MD. Prior to this, he was a Director at Finning UK & Ireland, responsible for a team of 500 people across power systems (Finning/CAT, Damar, Rollo Power and Diperk).
He replaces Paul Moore who has been at the helm of DTGen since 2004 and moves to the role of Chairman.
