Aggreko Continues Rapid Expansion Across Texas to Support Increased Demand for Temporary Power Solutions New Midland service center offers customers in Permian Basin fast in-region deployment Business Wire HOUSTON -- May 15, 2013 Following on the heels of a recent service center opening in Three Rivers, TX and validating demand for utility-scale power services to address the needs of rapidly growing oil and gas operations, Aggreko, the global leader in temporary power generation, temperature control and oil-free compressed air solutions, has opened a new facility in Midland, Texas. The new 6,500 sq. ft. facility will maintain all Aggreko equipment lines, including a wide range of portable natural gas and diesel power generation units, sales personnel, technical service and operational support. The service center will enhance the company’s responsiveness to temporary power needs in the booming Permian Basin area of Texas, increasing service response time and helping to enrich our customers’ experience. “The investment in this new location underscores Aggreko’s commitment to safe and superior customer service, keeping our oil and gas clients working in remote areas of production on time, on target and on budget,” said Brian Fahnestock, Vice President, General Manager, Mid-South Area, Aggreko North America.

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.
