Aggreko, the world leader in the provision of temporary power and temperature
control services, in conjunction with its local partner TKE-DJPL will provide
a 57 MW fast-track power solution to Djibouti to bring much needed additional

energy supplies across the country through a combination of thermal and

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 Dumbarton, Scotland.

Recent customers include the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games , the
Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games and the power utilities in over 50
