Drive Hire > How Gibbons Drive Hire works


Emergency VSD hire

With a team of ABB-trained engineers and a fleet of vehicles available, we’re ready to deliver, install and commission a replacement drive to get you up and running as soon as possible. We have a stock of ABB ACS580 general-purpose drives rated at 110kW, 250kW and 400kW ready to go with larger size drives available on request. In the meantime, we’ll repair the failed drive at our ABB-approved workshop and return it to operation.


Trial a VSD before placing an order

Alternatively, you may be considering investing in a variable-speed drive to increase the energy efficiency of your process but don’t want to commit capital until you’ve seen the savings for yourself.

No problem – you can hire a state-of-the-art ABB drive from us and see what all the fuss is about. If you’re not happy, simply return the drive to us, and if you’d like to place an order we’ll take care of it.
