JCB Power at Jimmy’s Farm

JCB Power ProductsJCB Power Products, working in partnership with rental customers ABBA Plant Hire and Mather+Stuart, delivered the power and lighting for this year’s Jimmy’s Festival, a two-day music and food festival in Ipswich, Suffolk. Organised by TV presenter Jimmy Doherty, at his Jimmy’s Farm location, the annual event is a celebration of music, poetry, arts and culinary excellence.

To ensure that the festival could be efficiently set-up and run, JCB Power Products provided portable lighting to the site, with the help of ABBA Plant, and power generation through the Mather+Stuart generator rental division of A-Plant. In total the company provided six generator sets, three of which were powered by JCB’s own highly efficient diesel engines.

“When you set up a festival, it’s not just about the two days of the event, “said Doherty. “It’s about the run-up, the set-up and the behind the scenes team is absolutely critical. That means having the kit, having the power, the lights and having the tech to make it all happen.”

Mather+Stuart provided the site with a G40RS rental specification generator set, along with two G60RS units. It also delivered one G100RS and two G200RS generator sets for use throughout the festival. Both models are powered by JCB’s Stage IIIA Dieselmax engine, delivering low fuel consumption, reduced emissions and low noise levels. All of the generators are equipped with JCB LiveLink for Power, ensuring real-time monitoring of performance and fuel consumption to prevent any risk of downtime during the festival. www.jcb.com
