Power Solutions

We offer a range of services to provide the total power package for your business need, including project design and build, together with project management, operation and commissioning.

Project Design, Build and Operation

Working with your procurement and technical teams from project inception, we offer a complete system design and build service that includes engineering and construction management, project management, process engineering design and execution.

We have over 25 years’ proven experience in delivering bespoke projects in the UK, Europe, Asia and North America. Many clients take this further with Finning owning and operating the asset. As with everything we do we can tailor our managed services and maintenance package to suit.

Project Management

A project, delivered on time and on budget is only made possible through careful planning, preparation and management. At Finning we work closely with our clients to make sure that our solution, regardless of the scale or the complexity of the project, is designed around the business need.

We are trusted by our customers to deliver total project management solutions, providing MEICA (Mechanical, Electrical, Instrumentation, Control and Automation services) together with civil works, design and engineering services.

Having worked on projects in over 40 countries we can offer a wide portfolio of capabilities across many disciplines; from design and build to equipment specification and engineering, to performance optimisation to asset management.

We can also provide project management in a number of specialist areas where bespoke solution are required along with the application of many years of technical and operational experience.

Consultancy Services

When you choose our consultancy services, you get the benefit of over 30 years’ of power engineering experience.

We know that specifying the right power generation solution needs to consider all aspects of your operation. Selecting the right size and model of engine is just the start.

From initial feasibility studies, to creating detailed equipment specification, our power engineering consultants will work with your engineering team from day one to develop a complete solution that matches your requirements; whether its to lower operating costs, reduce business risk, improve efficiency or meet the latest industry or environmental standard.

We can project manage all aspects of your power generation installation, including fuel storage and supply, electrical and mechanical engineering, the selection, testing and commissioning of all ancillary devices and bespoke control interfaces.

We also work with original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and consultancies across the UK and overseas to deliver projects on time and on budget in a wide variety of sectors; ranging from healthcare to commercial, data centres to manufacturing and utilities to agriculture.


Commissioning is a critical stage in the life of any project.

Our complete commissioning services play an important role in minimising risks and ensuring all equipment is checked and all procedures are completed before the system is handed over to the customer.

Through a series of vital checks undertaken before operation begins, we’re able to prove the integrity of all equipment, identifying and correcting any issues along the way. Our comprehensive approach helps our customers meet a host of challenges that may arise from a project's very beginning, such as cost control, safety and environmental compliance, and operational performance.

Finning can undertake complete responsibility for commissioning of its equipment, whether it’s in the engineering office, fabrication yard or a remote area.

Servicing and Maintenance for Electrical Distribution Systems

High voltage switchgear and other associated equipment require maintenance under BS6626. In addition, the Electricity at Work Act requires records of maintenance to be retained by the customer and by those completing the maintenance.

At Finning, we offer servicing and maintenance for electrical distribution systems, including both high voltage (1000v - 11kV) and low voltage systems (1000 volts & below).

Our testing services for electrical equipment and distribution systems include:

  • Insulation Resistance (IR) test (Polarisation Index – PI)
  • Partial Discharge Scan (PDS)
  • Thermo graphic survey (thermal imaging)
  • Ductor testing (conductivity test using micro ohm meter from 0.1µὨ to 1Ὠ)
  • Primary & secondary injection tests (protection systems, G59 etc)
  • Dielectric testing (transformer insulating oil)
  • Earth testing (ground)
  • UPS maintenance
  • Load bank testing

We can also carry out power quality analysis and data logging providing a power profile report. To complement this, we can troubleshoot power quality issues such as poor harmonics.
