the global leader in temporary
power and temperature
control services, has introduced an innovation to make it easier for
customers to access utility-scale power in challenging geographic areas.
New, customizable, mobile service centers will provide customers with
immediate access to Aggreko’s rental fleet, maintenance services, sales
personnel and technicians. They will be of particular relevance for
mining companies and oil and gas production.
“Aggreko has served the mining and oil and gas industries for more than
50 years, and we are proud to provide this new offering,” said Robert
Harrison, Vice President, Area General Manager, Aggreko Canada. “The
mobile service centers will help to solve the unique issues our
customers face in getting power in remote locations, including the
mountains of Northern Alberta, where grid access does not exist and the
nearest utility is miles away. They will provide the superior, highly
responsive service our customers need.”
Aggreko’s mobile centers are tailored to customer requirements, offering
fast access to many of the company’s major rental product lines
In addition to quicker access to its rental fleet, Aggreko customers
will have the option of 24/7 on-site monitoring and maintenance, and the
sites will also benefit from Aggreko's comprehensive environmental
Aggreko will be available to discuss the mobile service centers at
the upcoming PDAC International Convention, March 3-6, in Toronto, at
the Metro Toronto Convention Center, South Building, Booth 947.

Aggreko provides power and temperature control solutions to customers
who need them either very quickly, or for a short or indeterminate
length of time. Examples would be the supply of power to an industrial
site which needs to service its permanent power supply, supplying a
whole city in times of power shortage, or providing a major sporting
event with power and cooling systems. We serve our customers either
through our 165 service centers, which we call the Local business, or
globally through our International Power Projects business.
In the Local
business, which accounts for about half of our revenues, we hire our
equipment to customers, who then operate it for themselves, although we
retain responsibility for servicing and maintaining it. In the International
Power Projects business, which also accounts for about half of our
revenues, we operate as a power producer. We install and operate power
plants and we charge our customers both for providing the generating
capacity, and for the electricity we produce. We design and manufacture
equipment specifically for these requirements in our factory in
Recent customers include the London
2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, the Vancouver
2010 Olympic Winter Games and the power utilities in over 50
countries including the UK,
Indonesia, Bangladesh, Venezuela, Chile,
and the USA.
In 2011 we fulfilled almost 43,000 customers’ assignments and when
researched, 69% of them gave us a recommendation of 9 or 10 out of 10.
