Utility companies need the right tools to complete their work safely, efficiently, and sustainably. United Rentals will show how its solutions can help ensure companies and contractors meet their goals during The Utility Expo.

United Rentals will demonstrate utility equipment, digital tools, and excavation safety solutions during the event, offering utilities and contractors ways to address their specific utility infrastructure construction and maintenance needs.

Rental equipment for general use such as utility trucks, digger derricks, pullers, tensioners, and aerial work platforms are all available from United Rentals, along with specialty equipment for trench and confined space safety. The company also offers digital solutions like the Total Control worksite management platform and United Rentals Mobile App to aid users in making smarter equipment decisions.

Specific offerings for the utility sector include an extensive fleet of utility trucks with built-in asset tracking systems that make tracking trucks, equipment, and tools easier. They are equipped with hand and power tools, radios, and more, all with permanent asset tags that integrate with the Total Control platform for real-time visibility into each tool.

For utilities and contractors looking to address temporary and backup power needs while also meeting sustainability goals, United Rentals offers POWRBANK battery energy storage systems (BESS). The POWRBANK system provides reliable, efficient power and integrates with diesel generators, enabling utilities and contractors to significantly reduce generator run time, emissions, noise, and fuel waste.

Whether a utility crew is digging a trench or working within a confined space, United Rentals Trench Safety enables the worksite to achieve safety and productivity with underground solutions and safety training. United Rentals provides utilities and contractors with customized, cost-effective trench safety and excavation rental solutions. United Rentals supplies OSHA-compliant trench protective systems, including shoring, shielding, composite matting, lasers, and optical instruments.
