The reliability and practicality of loadbanks for load testing can prevent the risk of costly power failures and maximise efficient production during routine maintenance. Clients, particularly in the Asian oil and gas, shipping and utilities industries, rely on Aggreko to load test their power supply.
Aggreko provides a wide range of expert solutions and services, and deploys a complete line of resistive and reactive loadbanks.
Potential uses for loadbanks include:
- Load testing lower power factor simulation, frequency converters or full electrical system integration
- Commissioning newly installed turbine or diesel generators onboard drilling rigs
- Performing maintenance testing on equipment for industry and utilities
- Testing of gas turbines on oil platforms and FPSO conversion
Our loadbanks vary in size from 100kW to 5,000kW, with various power-factor testing capabilities. Compatible transformers are also available ranging from 3KV to 22KV and the units are durable and weatherproofed.
Loadbanks can run parallel for multi megawatt testing and be operated from one control panel equipped with advance data capturing software.
We have smaller units for portable loadbank rental which are compact enough to fit through a standard door.
