Why is ESI a great equipment rental source?
ESI has been creating solutions that are Built Artic Tough for more than 20 years. Our company started out reconditioning heaters on Alaska’s infamous North Slope in 2000. It quickly became clear that tough Arctic environments needed a special category of equipment. Today, we create innovative equipment that is perfect for use in places like North Dakota, where frigid temperatures and bitter winds quickly become too much for mainstream mining and construction equipment.
The ESI approach is to look at what works best for customers. All our products are based on the ideas and feedback we receive directly from our customers. Everything we make is cold weather tested at our manufacturing facility in Fairbanks, Alaska, before the prototype moves to the production line. It’s specifically designed to fire up even when it’s -40 degrees outside, whether that’s on an Alaskan oil field or a North Dakota drilling rig, to maximize your productivity.
We ship equipment all over the United States, from Alaska to North Dakota, Texas, Montana, and more. We also supply equipment internationally, working with customers as far away as Russia, Canada, and Chile. Our team takes a huge amount of pride in what we make, vend, and rent.
What ESI rental equipment is available in North Dakota?
The ESI store at Williston, North Dakota, is a great source of rental equipment. This includes heaters, ducts, and insulated tarps (all with unlimited hours); generators and light towers (hour limits apply); and water pumps (hour limits also apply to these). In other words, we have a great selection of equipment available to help you keep your jobsite running at peak efficiency. We’re here to help you minimize valuable downtime and get the job done as quickly as possible, no matter the conditions.
Rental heaters, ducts, and insulated tarps
First on the list is the Equipment Source range of heaters. These vary from 3,500 to 7,000 lbs in weight, with outputs ranging from 390,000 to 770,000 BTU per hour, to suit the demands of your project. You can also pick up one with a light tower, sensor safe operation, or flameless heat.
Here are three options to give you an idea of the variety available:
- ES-1000: Weighs 6,000 lbs, output of 760,000 BTU/hr, dual 12” outlets, single 20” inlet, and it comes with dual fire boxes.
- ES-700B: Weighs 6,250 lbs, output of 770,000 BTU-hr, dual 12” outlets, single 20” inlet, and it comes with a vertical LED light tower.

We also have a range of Flagro diesel and natural gas heaters available for rent. These can be as light as 330 lbs to maximize transportability and come with a pin lock duct connection for ease of use. Heaters are an essential item for every jobsite running through the winter, so it’s worth investing in the quality equipment you need to keep your workers safe and your equipment functioning.
Rental generators and light towers
Second is the range of carefully selected generators and light towers we rent to our customers. As we said at the start, we have a lot of experience working in extreme conditions up on Alaska’s North Slope. That means we’ve tried and tested most generators and light towers on the market. Over time, we’ve come to rely on companies like Shindaiwa and Wanco, which is why we stock them.
Here are three of our most popular items:
- Shindaiwa DGK60: Weighs 5,000 lbs, output of 60 KVA, simu-phase 1P and 3P, comes mounted on a trailer, and is available with Arctic re-air.
- Shindaiwa DGK150: Weighs 9,500 lbs, output of 150 KVA, 1P or 3P switchable phase, comes trailer mounted, and is also available with Arctic re-air.
- Wanco Light Tower: Weighs 1800 lbs, output of 6 KW, features four 1000 W metal halide lamps, each with a 60+ hour run time to promote productivity.
Shindaiwa is committed to producing the highest quality commercial products for people who rely on their tools to make a living, which is why they align so well with ESI. Wanco, meanwhile, leads the traffic safety industry with experience, knowledge, and quality needed to get things done. We have no hesitation in recommending these products based on our own experience over the years.
Rental water pumps
Water is essential to every jobsite and no company can afford to be held up waiting for a clunky old generator to move water from point A to point B. We’ve created a line of powerful generators over time that ensure you’ll always have the volume and pressure you need. We are constantly looking to adjust and improve them, so please reach out our elite engineers if you have any suggestions.
Here are the two top performers in North Dakota:
- ES-CP4_4”: This manual prime pump weighs 1,950 lbs, with an output of 800 GPM at 2,000 RPM, and it can be mounted on either a trailer or skids.
- ES-PP6_6’: This automatic prime pump weighs 4,220 lbs, with an output of 3,000 GPM at 2,200 RPM, and is a run-dry pump.
What industries does ESI equipment support?
Mining, quarrying, and oil and gas extraction are huge in North Dakota, which is a big part of the reason we opened a store here. However, we also have a lot of experience and expertise supporting industries such as construction, aviation, telecommunications, remote accommodations providers, emergency response organizations, agriculture, and the logistics sector.
The truth is we can create specialty equipment for any industry.
