Emergency Power

We understand that every minute counts during a power outage

When factories, industrial zones and tourism areas experience interruptions in electricity, the serious effects to the economy can seriously affect growth and eventually suffer severe losses. Causes of emergency power generation may be attributed to natural disasters, accidents and situations where the human factor is involved. Whatever the cause of the power interruption, Altaaqa Global can rapidly deliver a temporary power plant on short notice.

Emergency power is required when the current power supply is inaccessible and a quick solution is due immediately.

We provide temporary power in all types of emergency cases such as:

  • Weather calamities
  • Manmade errors or accidents resulting in power outages
  • Natural disaster
  • Post-conflict

There are cases where utilities experience energy shortages because of reduced power from a next-door country. This may happen due to technical failure or an unexpected contractual change. Whatever the case, consumers require additional electricity swiftly either for base load, continuous operation, or for emergency back-up and hopefully manage the situation.

Altaaqa Global’s temporary power products and technologies are the most efficient solution for a fast-track capacity application because their modular design has been custom engineered for rapid mobilization and start-up.

We guarantee energy when you need it. Fast.

Case Study

CAT® rental power provides strong, coordinated response to customers after Hurricane Sandy.

On October 29, 2012, Hurricane Sandy reached New York City, flooding streets, tunnels and subway lines, causing massive power outages. When devastation like this occurs, quick response is essential. The Electric Power team and the Cat® Dealer Network supported the recovery efforts by sending equipment, personnel and other resources to help the affected areas.

After the storm hit, more than 1,400 generator sets — creating an astounding 1.1 GW of power — were deployed to customers, including gas stations, hospitals, and commercial and industrial facilities. In addition to the generators, dozens of transformers and fuels tanks, 2.5 miles of power cable and hundreds of light towers, pumps and heaters were also sent. CAT Rental Power responded directly to customer demand or sent equipment and personnel in support of the recovery effort.
