portable natural gas and diesel power generators, sales personnel, technical
service and operational support.

the APS team can design and install projects at extremely short notice. In
addition, Aggreko will leverage remote monitoring technology to manage power
supply sources and proactively identify and resolve operational issues.

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.
