Which comes first: reliable power supply or the egg?

Jul 12, 2018

For chicken farming, whatever the scale of the operation, reliable electrical power is crucial. To help maintain airflow, incubate eggs and keep the birds warm are some vital reasons why reliable back-up power supply is essential. If the main grid fails – and it’s a long-term outage – the stock losses would be both tragic and financially disastrous.

That’s why one of Australia’s leading chicken and egg operations needed a reliable standby system. To ensure continuity of their power supply, they called AllightSykes for a high-quality FG Wilson Generator. 

“It’s total peace of mind knowing that the reliability of the FG Wilson generator is ready to kick-in if the grid fails. It’s very satisfying” said the General Manager, Farm Operations, “ To my mind, it’s almost like having an extra special type of business insurance. It’s great to know it’s there if the power goes out. Unless they make the grid 100% fail-safe, then AllightStykes is vital to the survival of our chickens and our business too”.

If your business never stops – and the continuity of your electrical power supply is absolutely essential to your business, then AllightSykes and FG Wilson are ready with a standby solution.

In recent years, wild storms bringing down major power lines – and power-grid outages during peak-supply periods – have caused havoc for many businesses. Even more, these same businesses are striving to reduce operating costs, whilst looking to reduce their environmental footprint too. So the need for reliable, efficient and effective standby-power is critical.

When power supply is crucial, trust FG Wilson.

“When the cost of grid-power started to soar in Australia, the market become very price sensitive” said Garrin Angel, AllightSykes Product Lifestyle Manager for Power Products, “So low-cost, low-quality product came to market. But the buyers of the cheap generators soon regret it as cheap units don’t stand-up to the rigours of demand, especially in this country’s conditions – we really need robust machinery”.

“It’s quite simple really -  if you invest in standby power, it needs to work when it’s needed; full stop. It’s ironic really, people who choose a poor-quality generator will ultimately need some back-up for their back-up” he observed wryly.

As word spread of the poor performers within the market, Garrin is now seeing the expectations of the smart buyers rise again. “Product quality, high-performance and support - that’s what our customers are looking for, so I’m proud to be offering such a wide range of high-performing standby power-solutions. The partnership between AllightSykes and FG Wilson offers the best-quality, highest performing generators in the market today” he explained.

FG Wilson’s global reputation for delivering reliable power is second to none. “It’s extremely reassuring to know you’ve purchased the best quality, but it’s also important that reliable service and helpful support continues after the unit is installed and operational” said Garrin.  “At AllightSykes, we offer an industry-leading level of after-sales support.  Throughout Australia and New Zealand, AllightSykes workshops are staffed by highly trained FG Wilson specialists”.

“We help our clients by providing a professional care plan and regular service schedule. We can offer a lifetime of support to their FG Wilson standby power solution” said Garrin proudly.
