Look around the skyline of the City of London and you’ll find that many of the most iconic buildings in view have FG Wilson generator sets inside, installed by Bells Power Solutions.

These are believed to be the highest installed generator sets in the northern hemisphere.
Bells Power Solutions, who have been a dealer of FG Wilson for 30 years, are contracted to T Clarke / Multiplex group, who are constructing 22 Bishopsgate, now the tallest building in the City of London with the highest useable floor space in northern Europe.
