UK leading generator specialist, DTGen, is working with the team at Opir, a Scottish-based voluntary organisation, to ship a generator to Ukraine in support of the humanitarian appeal.

The 250kVA generator, which has been donated by DTGen along with more than 30 boxes of other essential  items donated by the team, is being transported to Ukraine by Finnie Heavy Haulage. It is understood that the generator is expected to arrive in Ukraine by next weekend, and will be taken right in to the warzone to provide power to a medical facility in Lviv.

David Oates, Managing Director at DTGen, said: “Like the rest of the country, we have watched in horror as the situation in Ukraine has been unfolding, and have been eager to show support for the people affected by the war. As always, our team has really pulled together, and we’re thankful to all involved that we can make this happen.”

Julie Joseph OBE, a volunteer with Opir, added: “It’s extraordinary what can be achieved when we all pull together. We’ve been overwhelmed by the generosity of everyone involved so far, with a special mention for DTGen for gifting the generator and for Finnie for providing the transportation to get the equipment to where it is needed.

“We have connected with iCare Ukraine to support with local intelligence and for the delivery of donations in Ukraine. This is proving to be very efficient and by working together we are ensuring aid and support is reaching those most in need.”
