Aggreko Announces Global Partnership with Cirque du Soleil PR Newswire GLASGOW, Scotland, December 3, 2013 GLASGOW, Scotland, December 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Aggreko, the global leader in the provision of temporary power and temperature control services has today announced a global partnership with Cirque du Soleil that will see Aggreko supply temporary power and temperature control systems to Cirque du Soleil's big top touring productions for the next four years. With extensive touring of its five big top shows, Cirque du Soleil requires a professional temporary power supply and temperature control system delivered with a consistent quality across all tour locations. Having vast experience in supporting the global events industry, as well as a local presence in more than 100 countries, Aggreko was an obvious choice for the Montreal based global entertainment company. Aggreko will provide an uninterruptable power supply to each event across the USA, Canada, Latin America, Europe and Asia-Pacific. This will ensure each location has a stable and reliable power supply which is completely independent of the local electricity grid. To ensure the safety of the performers and to maximise audience comfort, a constant temperature must be maintained within the big top. With performances taking place in a variety of summer and winter locations, having a solution that works just as effectively in the Brazilian summer as it does in the Russian winter is essential. Aggreko will employ a highly sophisticated, integrated heating and cooling system to ensure targeted temperatures are maintained. "Cirque du Soleil is very pleased to be partnering with the industry leader, Aggreko, as a global sponsor of our shows over the next four years," said Louis Malafarina, Cirque du Soleil Corporate Alliances Director. "This is a fantastic alliance for us. Aggreko will provide a complete solution for uninterruptable power along with an innovative and energy efficient temperature control solution that meets the unique needs of our Big Top Touring shows. Aggreko will provide an integral part of our infrastructure, ensuring that our shows are performed to audiences all over the world." "We are delighted to be partnering with such an iconic global entertainment brand as Cirque du Soleil," commented Rupert Soames, Chief Executive of Aggreko. "Our extensive experience in supporting major international events along with our global footprint, make Aggreko an excellent match for Cirque du Soleil's power and temperature control requirements. I look forward to a long and successful partnership between our two organisations." Editors Notes 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. 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 International 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 International 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.
