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 centres, which we call
the Local business, or globally through our International Power Projects
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 Dumbarton, Scotland.
Recent customers include the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games, the Vancouver 2010
Olympic Winter Games, the London 2012 Olympic Games and the power utilities in
over 50 countries including the UK, France, Angola, Kenya, Indonesia,
Bangladesh, Venezuela, Chile, Brazil 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.
