Explanation:
Just thinking laterally, and translating literally, could a "power vehicle" be a "generator"? I am just thinking of those generators on wheels which can be towed behind a car or van to provide portable, on-site power.

It might fit with you context if a portable generator is required to supply power, perhaps for heating, to the greenhouse.

The reference below seems to back it up.

Should have added that a GPU is a Ground Power Unit.
