Load Bank Rental Equipment
Crestchic’s fleet of rental equipment is specifically designed to meet the rigorous demands of frequent rental and movement, from a small 30kW Resistive Load bank, through to a major 50MVA Resistive/Reactive High Voltage package.
Smaller canopied AC Resistive and DC units have either forklift bases or wheels for ease of movement on site and loading. Whilst our larger AC Resistive & Resistive-Reactive units are packaged in ISO style containers (Lloyds Register Approved) for safe handling onto trailers and container ships alike.
The Crestchic rental fleet is designed to operate across a range of voltages and frequencies up to 690V and up to to 36kV with the addition of our containerised step-down transformers.

WHY USE A LOAD BANK?
Load banks are primarily used for testing electrical power output on diesel generators, gas turbines and UPS systems whilst carrying out commissioning and maintenance work.
The load banks are used for simulating real electrical loads enabling essential setup and commissioning which ensures that all electrical and control parameters are met prior to power generation/back up equipment being energized on line.
