SAINT JOHN, New Brunswick -- May 28, 2013
To meet the growing temporary power needs of oil and gas customers in Atlantic
Canada, Aggreko, the global leader in temporary power generation, temperature
control and oil-free compressed air solutions, has opened a 10,000 sq ft
mobile service centre facility in Saint John, New Brunswick. Introduced in
February 2013, Aggreko’s customizable, mobile service centres are designed for
rapid deployment to provide customers with immediate access to the company’s
rental fleet, maintenance services, sales personnel and technicians. Aggreko
first established itself in Saint John in 2012, and is expanding its Atlantic
Canada operations to support booming local industries, including
petrochemical, refining, offshore oil & gas, mining, and power generation and
transmission. In addition, the company will offer customers access to the
largest fleet of rental equipment throughout Atlantic Canada.
“Aggreko is committed to maintaining a superior level of local service and
support to our valued customers in the Atlantic Canada region,” said Peter
Brouwer, Vice President, Area General Manager, East Canada, Aggreko. “We’re
proud to expand our mobile service centre offering and provide engineered
temporary power, heating and cooling solutions designed to reduce downtime
during periods of turnarounds and maintenance.”
The mobile service centre will supply the area with all the company’s major
rental product lines, including:
*Power generators from 30 kW to 1,500 kW
*New natural gas generators, 65 kW and 1,300 kW
*Temperature-control equipment - chillers, cooling towers, air conditioners
and electric heaters

harsh weather conditions
The new depot will also provide engineering support from Aggreko Process
Services (APS): an experienced process engineering team within Aggreko that
helps customers improve their processes and operations to enhance bottom-line
performance and address environmental concerns. Unique to the rental industry,
the APS team can design and install projects at extremely short notice – and
while customers await capital expenditure approval or the delivery of
equipment. In addition, Aggreko will leverage remote monitoring technology to
manage power supply sources and proactively identify and resolve operational
Aggreko’s new facility is open for business and located at 331 Chesley Drive,
Saint John, NB.

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.
