New battery rental service from GNB Industrial Power

GNB Industrial Power (previously known as Exide Technologies) has launched a new traction battery rental solution; ‘Power Gap’ offers managers of materials handling equipment fleets the opportunity to bridge any gap they may have in their energy requirements without a major investment in capital equipment.

Power Gap is designed for certain peak times of the year, such as the run up to Christmas, when customers need to increase their battery fleet. Alternatively, they may have reached the end of a long term lease contract but do not wish to take on the commitment of another long term contract at that point in time. In such instances Power Gap can provide be the ideal flexible solution.

Power Gap gives customers the reassurance that they are getting a reliable product supported by the backup of the UK’s largest motive battery provider. A package can be tailored to the customer’s exact requirements, who is then charged a fixed weekly cost – helping with planning and cash flow as assets are not tied up in capital equipment.

A GNB technician will provide a professional evaluation of the client’s requirements and a package is recommended which will include regular on-site inspections and maintenance calls as well as any required replacements at no additional cost. 24 hour standby maintenance offers additional reassurance to maximise uptime. Should power needs change, Power Gap can be adjusted accordingly.

GNB is a division of Exide Technologies. Exide Technologies, with operations in more than 80 countries, is one of the world’s largest producers and recyclers of lead-acid batteries. The Company’s four global business groups – Transportation Americas, Transportation Europe and Rest of World, Industrial Energy Americas and Industrial Energy Europe and Rest of World – provide a comprehensive range of stored electrical energy products and services for industrial and transportation applications.
