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
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. "We recognize that not every customer has the same operating profile.
Aggreko provides flexible, scalable and reliable power no matter what size the
project demands, one unit or 50, 150 kW to 10+ MW.”
In addition to expanding its personnel and rental fleet, Aggreko is focused on
maximizing production uptime for customers by investing in remote monitoring
technology designed to manage power supply sources and proactively identify
and resolve operational issues. The company is also committed to upholding the
highest health, safety and environmental standards for employees and
customers, having recently added to its certifications with ISO 14001
Environmental Management Certification in 2013 and the OHSAS 18001
Certification in 2012.
Aggreko’s new facility is open for business and located at 8801 West County
Road 127, Midland, TX 79706.
Aggreko plc is the world leader in the supply of temporary power and
temperature control solutions. Aggreko employs over 5,700 people operating
from 194 locations. In 2012 we served customers in about 100 countries, and
had revenues of approximately GBP 1.6bn (USD 2.5bn or Euros 2.0bn). Aggreko
plc is listed on the London Stock Exchange (AGK.L), is a member of the
FTSE-100 index, and is headquartered in Scotland. For more information, please

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.
