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.

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.
