Meet the Team

Phil Starr




    Philip Starr, Technical Director   

Philip Starr began working within the Generator Industry in 1984 following a number of years working as an Engineer Officer in the Merchant Navy.

Starting in the generator service sector he soon became a Depot Manager and moved from Generator Service into Technical Sales. This led to an increasing involvement in predominantly large and quite complex generator installations including associated fuel storage and transfer systems as well as noise attenuation and advanced generator controls and remote monitoring. 

In recent years, Phil has been very involved in the supply of suitable generators to clients participating in the National Grid Capacity Market and has now undertaken the supply and installation of very many hundreds of generators and control systems for STOR (Short Term Operating Reserve).

As Technical Director with GMI Power Solutions Ltd this role continues to be a major part of his daily activity providing both advice and assistance in moving potential STOR sites from concept to a suitable solution.
