Temporary power

Rental Solutions & Services (RSS)

Rental Solutions & Services (RSS) is a temporary power and cooling rental solutions provider in the Middle East. Founded in Dubai in 2007, it has a decade of experience working in a range of industries requiring temporary power and cooling in the GCC and beyond.

The Dubai-based company has offices across the GCC, including in Bahrain, Oman, Qatar, and Saudi Arabia, from which it provides engineered solutions to sectors such as construction, shipping, manufacturing, oil and gas, and most recently, events.

Providing temporary power solutions for single-site projects and entire cities alike, the company’s complete package of temporary power, refrigeration, temperature control and district cooling solutions make RSS a one-stop-shop for its customers.

The 150-strong RSS team is led by managing director Stewart Murray, who brings with him more than 25 years’ international executive management experience in industries including utilities, health and safety, and financial and private equity.

As RSS enters its second decade, Murray is committed to driving company growth in new and existing sectors, and particularly through its temporary power division. Over the past six months, he has led the restructuring of the company to help RSS achieve this goal, with a new management team in place set to build upon the company’s reputation for superior customer care and increase its market reach.

This year, RSS has invested heavily in a new fleet of generators to enable the team to serve more clients in more sectors, and the Middle East’s events industry is a key target area. With temporary power and cooling solutions that can be installed for as little as 24 hours, RSS is positioned to provide essential support to a wide range of events.

The RSS fleet is of rental specification, with acoustically sound-proofed canopies and containerised generators. It includes generators with a capacity of 30kVA to 1,250kVA and double-bunded fuel tanks — with 1,000 gallon to 5,000 gallon capacities, transformers, load banks and HV/LV switchgear.

The equipment is among the best in the market, with RSS committed to international standards of quality, health, safety and education. The company also offers customised HVAC maintenance programmes and rapid response to emergency breakdowns, with round-the-clock customer service and technicians on the ground to support clients when they need it most.

The customer lies at the heart of the RSS, which drives its success from the inside out with a people-powered philosophy.

Commenting on its outlook for 2017, Murray says: “At RSS, we have a dynamic new management team that is committed to adding value to the business, its customers and its employees. For us, the philosophy behind this growth is simple: ‘Employ great people to deliver great service’.

“Together, we have a shared goal to deliver the highest quality solutions and services in the marketplace. Our technicians take pride in their work and are the best in the business, able to advise customers on the bespoke solutions for their needs.

“From these strong foundations, we are now excited to enter our next phase of growth, with ambitious yet achievable plans to increase our market share and drive returns for our shareholders. We have laid the groundwork for this expansion, with a multi-million-dollar investment in our new fleet, and the recruitment of new operations and sales managers with a wealth of experience in the industry and the region. With this in place, we are looking forward to supporting new and existing clients to achieve their business goals in the year ahead.”
