Discover the Portable PowerStation, and Why it’s the Best Portable Power Station for Sustainability

In today’s tech-driven world, it’s more important than ever to have access to a reliable power source for businesses in the utilities sector – and beyond. 

And, if you’re looking to reduce your business’s carbon footprint, finding portable power that doesn’t rely on fossil fuels isn’t always easy. 

That’s why Hy-Ram are proud to offer the PowerStation, one of the UK’s first emission- and fossil fuel-free portable site power products.

Whether you need on-the-go electricity to power on site tools including electrofusion, butt fusion, submersible pumps, lighting, or any other requirement, the PowerStation can help!

Read on to find out why the PowerStation stands out as the best portable power station for reducing site emissions and promoting sustainability specifically in the water, gas and utilities sector…

An introduction to portable power stations

Portable power stations are versatile, compact and rechargeable devices that provide instant access to power on the go. 

From emergency power supply to remote monitoring, pipeline maintenance, and renewable energy integration, these ancillary power solutions support a wide range of critical activities often in remote places with little access to mains electricity.

With zero emissions, they’re also a great option for sustainable energy when you need to go off the grid.

We’re exhibiting at the No-Dig Roadshow Reading on Wednesday 26 June! Join the Hy-Ram team at this key event for all engineers, consultants and contractors involved in the installation or refurbishment of underground utilities. Register for FREE now, and we’ll see you there…

Why Hy-Ram’s PowerStation is the best portable power station for the utilities sector

Reliable power source

The PowerStation incorporates high capacity, rechargeable battery technology, ensuring efficient and reliable power delivery. 

With large capacity recharge cycles, it’s ideal for long-term use on sites or during remote activities such as repair & maintenance work.

Emission & noise reduction

Two standout features of the PowerStation are its focus on reducing site emission and noise pollution. Traditional generators often rely on fossil fuels, which emit harmful pollutants and contribute to environmental degradation, but also can be more challenging for communication on site when compared to the silent running PowerStation.

In contrast, the PowerStation operates on clean energy, significantly lowering carbon emissions, without the use of flames or traditional fossil fuels. 

This shift not only helps in meeting environmental regulations and your carbon reduction goals, but also promotes a healthier work environment as it doesn’t produce harmful emissions.


Sustainability is at the core of the PowerStation design. As well as providing zero-emission power, the casing for the unit is constructed using corrosion-resistant stainless steel, reducing the need for frequent replacements. 

Additionally, the ability to recharge the batteries over and over throughout the product’s life span aligns with sustainable energy practices, allowing users to harness renewable energy and minimise their carbon footprint.

Versatility and portability

Portability is a crucial factor in the effectiveness of any power station. Weighing just circa 90 kgs, the PowerStation is designed with a compact, lightweight frame, featuring sturdy handles and wheels for easy transportation. 

Plus, its intuitive plug-and-play design and silent running means staff on-site won’t require any additional training or behavioural changes to safely operate and communicate while the PowerStation is in use.

AI powered reporting

With its smart energy usage and cost prediction software, and bespoke app, you’ll only pay for the electricity you use. 

Keep an eye on the live power remaining with the built-in LCD screen so you know exactly when to schedule swapping out or recharging.

Plus, the bespoke app allows you to monitor the performance and consumption of your operations in real-time, with reporting on kWh used as well as key ESG data like environmental CO2.

Examples of PowerStation Uses in the Utilities Sector

Remote monitoring, emergency back up or repair and maintenance

Utility companies often have equipment in remote areas, such as pipeline monitoring stations, sensors, and maintenance equipment. The PowerStation can supply power to these remote setups, enabling real-time monitoring and timely maintenance without relying on the grid.

Portable power stations can power a range of tools and equipment, for example:

  • Sampling equipment: Ensuring consistent operation of water and air sampling devices.
  • Data loggers: Keeping environmental data loggers and sensors powered for continuous monitoring.
  • Inspection cameras: For visual inspections of pipelines.
  • Utility equipment: Electrofusion units, Butt Fusion Machines, Submersible Pumps, Breakers.
  • Electric tools: Such as drills, saws, and grinders used in repair work.
  • Lighting: Providing adequate lighting for night-time or low-visibility conditions.

Electrofusion welding equipment and power tools

If you’re joining together thermoplastic pipes and using electrofusion or butt fusion to weld the joint together, the PowerStation can provide seamless power for your operations even in remote locations where grid power is unavailable.

Similarly, this nifty instant power source works with any kind of electrical tool, including lighting and under pressure drilling equipment. Its portability and robust power output make it ideal for fieldwork, reducing downtime and enhancing productivity.

Emergency power supply

In the event of power outages, portable power stations can provide a reliable backup for essential utilities infrastructure. This includes:

  • Submersible pumps: Ensuring continuous water supply to residential and commercial areas.
  • Control systems: Maintaining the functionality of automated control systems for water treatment plants, sewage systems, and electrical grids.
  • Communication systems: Keeping communication networks operational for utility workers, ensuring coordinated responses to emergencies.


In a world increasingly focused on sustainability and environmental responsibility, the PowerStation emerges as the best portable power station for the utilities sector. Its innovative design, focus on emission reduction, and commitment to sustainability make it an ideal choice for a wide range of applications. Whether you need reliable power for a remote site, emergency backup, or your key equipment, the PowerStation delivers unmatched performance and environmental benefits.

Choosing the PowerStation is not just a practical decision for ensuring steady power wherever you’re operating, but also a step towards your environmental goals.
