English translation:(temporary) power supply equipment
Explanation:
In the context of supplying electrical power, "service" refers to the power supply itself, and "service facilities" in general is the equipment (cabling, boxes, etc.) involved in the supply. Here it seems to be implicitly talking about temporary service facilities (portable distribution boxes and temporary cabling).

"Temporary service facilities, such as facilities to furnish emergency
service during an outage, facilities to provide service to construction sites,
or other service of a limited duration, such as to a fair, carnival, outdoor exhibit or function where the facilities will be installed for a temporary period only."

"distribution system - electrical service facilities consisting of primary and secondary conductors, service laterals, transformers and necessary accessories and appurtenances for the furnishing of electrical power at utilization voltage)"
