Newton Derby can provide specialist AC and DC generators for armoured vehicles, ground power units and unmanned air vehicles as well as rotary and solid state frequency converters for aircraft ground supplies and marine or land-based buffered supplies.

Newton Derby have previously been awarded a £1.15m contract to supply new generators to RAF Coningsby. RAF Coningsby has ordered two generators delivering 2MW total load, as well as an acoustically attenuated building enclosure, new fuel supply pipe work, daily use fuel tank, and all associated High Voltage (HV) and Low Voltage (LV) switch gear.

Although Newton Derby has a rich history of supplying the armed forces, this latest contract marks a successful realignment strategy by the management team, as general manager Elizabeth MacKenzie explains.  “Historically Newton Derby has been synonymous with portable generator units for the armed forces, including ac and dc generators for armoured vehicles, ground power units and unmanned air vehicles. This latest contract win demonstrates that our technical and project management skills now allow us to successfully manage a much wider range of projects, with the feedback from the RAF that we were awarded the contract on the basis of our excellent technical presentation.”


“Previous contracts have demonstrated our track record and success at providing the armed forces with top quality power generation products that are designed to withstand the rigours of these demanding military environments.” – Elizabeth MacKenzie, Newton Derby General Manager
