Servicing Australian industries

Alter Generation is a locally owned business operating out of our office and workshop in Townsville. We offer services across all of Queensland, focusing on Queensland’s north and the Capricorn Coast. We strive to deliver reliable and affordable services to our Queensland clients within 24 hours of a confirmed order. However, we do not limit ourselves to Australia’s northeast, with our expanding operation prepared to service all Australian industries. 

Our family-run business will personally answer your calls, giving immediate information about the services and products Alter Generation can supply to solve your power, lighting or air problem. Alter Generation particularly acknowledges the significance of our generating benefits to the mining and construction industries and the value of punctual dispatch.

Rental services

Alter Generation has the confidence to give clients a range of rental options to suit their budgets and project timelines. Phil, who has over 30 years of experience in the equipment rental sector, manages equipment rentals. Alter Generation calculates the variables that can affect your project needs, such as maximum loads, running hours, fuel consumption and maintenance servicing—presenting our clients a complete quote. We also understand that some equipment requirements can extend past the initial rental agreement; therefore, we implement contingency plans in these circumstances to do our best to deliver continuous equipment supply.

Equipment sales

Alter Generation facilitates generator equipment sales for companies that wish to obtain equipment permanently. We sell new generating equipment across various brands and sizes and supply equipment specifications and brand analysis to assist our clients in deciding the optimum product for their business. A selection of used equipment is also available for purchase, with options varying depending on stock. All our used equipment is well-maintained and usually is accompanied by service history, and are priced accordingly.

Providing power, lighting and air generation

Alter Generation specialises in producing power, light and air. Clients can use our reliable equipment as a continuous energy source for short or long term projects, and we also ensure our equipment is maintained correctly and serviced regularly. Alternatively, our dependable generator machinery can be used as a backup and operated when needed, for example, in the case of a mains power failure or as a temporary substitute for faulty equipment. 

Many of our clients undertake projects in remote areas, where mains power, permanent lighting and high-pressure air supply is unreliable or non-existent, with minimal resources and infrastructure at their disposal. This is when Alter Generation can step in to provide the power, light and air needed to carry out work, day and night, to achieve desired outcomes.

Power generation

Alter Generation has various diesel generators to offer when general or specific power is needed on a work site. Our team will work closely with your business to understand the power demands and job requirements from our generators and supply equipment to suit. We have a range of generator sizes that will provide results to all scenarios, and we have the electrical knowledge to give the most efficient generator combinations if required.

Lighting generation

Our collection of lighting towers is sufficient to provide excellent results to all jobs Alter Generation takes on. We can provide direct lighting for critical tasks, such as crusher shutdown maintenance and general lighting, to produce a safe working environment and adequate visibility 24/7. Our lighting tower generators are well maintained and can be routinely serviced when hired for a prolonged period.

Air generation

Air tools are often used in heavy industry due to their robust design and undeniable strength; however, an air source can often be unavailable. Our air generators differ in size, with portable units for ease of use and flexibility, as well as larger units for a common air source on busy work sites. Alter Generation ensures concise maintenance of our diesel air generators and operating instructions to the clients who wish to use them.


When we had issues with the remote starting of our backup generators at our resort and we needed someone asap, so that we could make sure that our guests were never inconvenienced with any power loss. Peter and his team arrived quickly and diagnosed the issue. They sourced all the parts and had them fitted promptly.

We'd been looking to purchase a used generator for backup power for our business We gave the guys at Alter a call and they came out to site to discuss our needs and requirements. After speaking with both Peter and Phil we purchased a 500kVA unit and had them make some modifications to the unit to meet our specific needs. Installation went smoothly and now we feel better knowing that we have a dependable backup power supply for our business.
We run a Dog Boarding business that totally depends on continuity of our electrical supply to care for our resident dogs. Loss of power puts the animals lives at high risk. After we experienced significant storm damage which was then compounded by an incompetent local electrician., we found ourselves in an very difficult position and we needed help quickly and efficiently. Basically we had lost the majority of our electricity supply infrastructure. Another business recommended Peter from Alter Generation who turned out to be a “godsend”. Not only did Peter respond to our cries of help immediately he was on our doorstep after travelling all night to scope the property and work out an action plan. The final outcome involved replacing our standby generator, replacing hundreds of metres of underground cable and rewiring and upgrading our mains board and other subboards. Peter in our experience is an extremely knowledgeable and skilled electrical contractor. His pricing was very reasonable and attention to detail is without fault. He is not happy until every problem has been sorted and his customer is 100% satisfied. I can not rate him highly enough. Also he is just a really nice guy and genuine human being.

OMG OMG OMG is all I can say about Alter Generation. Peter is one of the most amazing human beings I've ever delt with. I mean honest, respectful and amazingly helpful. Only a new business in the Townsville and North Queensland region but this guy with his expertise and range of power generation equipment is second to none. If you're in doubt about what you need for your work site or party Peter is the man to talk to. Friendly is an understatement. If he can't help you no one can. I had my wedding in may 2021 and needed power Generation to make it happen. Peter was like a long lost brother and helped me beyond anything imaginable. The thankless acts and generosity of this amazing individual I can never repay. The human spirit is alive and present at Alter Generation. If it's power Generation you need then give Peter a call, you'll thank God after you do!! WORD.....
