In Qatar, new additions to its fleet include the Alimak hoists while the company?s UAE branch added leasing of specialist transport commercial vehicles to its activity. The company also plans to introduce its new fleet of hybrid energy generators for more clean and efficient power that reduces carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions.
Byrne COO Pat Fallon said, ?These investments support our strategy of providing single-point rental solutions and to become an enabler for operational efficiency in the markets we serve. We have also recently added an extensive fleet of power sweepers to address the increased demand from specialist manufacturing clients and general facility management companies.?
Fallon pointed out that these would be the first of their kind in the region and ideal for most long-term projects such as telecommunications, military applications and construction sites in remote locations.
The company currently carries more than 8,000 items of mechanical and non-mechanical equipment in its rental fleets regionally. Generators represent the major part of its mechanical fleet ranging in size from 12 to 1,650 kVA with the capability to scale up to multi-megawatt power plants. Byrne also provides bundled fuel tanks, cables, secondary distribution and transformers to support these products.
According to Fallon, in recent times, the concept of renting on a project-by-project basis and allocating costs accordingly has seen renewed appeal of the rental model.
