Aggreko Introduces New Cooling Tower Line
Offers Largest Portable Cooling Tower Available
HOUSTON -- May 07, 2013
Aggreko, the global leader in providing temporary power, temperature control,
and oil-free compressed air services, has introduced a new line of portable
cooling towers into its fleet. The units provide an additional option for
companies needing a temporary cooling tower solution and range in cooling
capacity from 3,000 to 9,000 gallons per minute (GPM). Aggreko’s rental
cooling tower fleet is the largest available worldwide, consisting of nearly
500 units with a combined capacity in excess of 1,500,000 GPM.

Features of the new line of cooling towers include a self-leveling capability
and adjustable jacks to position and stabilize equipment placed on uneven
terrain, minimizing ground preparation. Further, the cooling towers provide
cost-efficiencies for customers because a crane is not required for set-up and
the design allows units to be installed in a matter of two-three hours,
resulting in lower amounts of manpower and resources to be commissioned.
“Aggreko is proud to introduce our new line of portable cooling towers giving
customers another option to choose from when faced with supplemental cooling
capacity needs,” said Billy Childers, National Manager, Aggreko Cooling Tower
Services, Aggreko Americas. “The new line perfectly complements our existing
heavy industrial and commercial duty fleets, and allows Aggreko to provide a
scalable, best-fit portfolio of solutions to meet customer demand.”
The new cooling towers are immediately available for rental and contingency
purposes providing fast service without the need for large capital
expenditures. Aggreko customers will also benefit from 24/7 remote monitoring
and maintenance capabilities to immediately troubleshoot unexpected
operational issues that arise.

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 194 service centres, which we call
the Local business, or globally through our 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 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 London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, the
Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games and the power utilities in over 50
countries including the UK, France, Angola, Kenya, Indonesia, Bangladesh,
Venezuela, Chile, Brazil and the USA.
In 2012 we fulfilled almost 45,000 customers’ assignments and 70% of those who
responded to our research gave us a recommendation of 9 or 10 out of 10.
