Aggreko Powers and Cools Art Miami Leader in Rental Power & Services Delivers Temporary Utilities to 6-Day International Fair Business Wire HOUSTON -- December 5, 2013 Aggreko, the global leader in temporary power generation and temperature control solutions, is providing a climate control solution for the 24^th annual edition of Art Miami, the leading international contemporary and modern art fair, December 3-8, 2013 in Miami, Fla. Collaborating with Eventstar Structures, recognized worldwide for its unique designs of permanent and semi-permanent fabric structures, Aggreko developed a cooling and power design to meet the unique needs of the event’s “tented” facility, which is playing host to more than 300 works of art and more than 65,000 artists, collectors, dealers and curators. Taking place each December during Art Weekat the Midtown Miami complex in the renowned Wynwood Arts District, Art Miami incorporates about seven city blocks. The event was designed and engineered using two distinctly different tent structures and customized utility infrastructure. “Art Miami requires a unique cooling solution for each individual event location,” said Luis Alfaro, southeast area event specialist for Aggreko North America. “Given the design of the structures, and the nature of art materials, it is important to incorporate a flexible, temporary cooling system to ensure the integrity of the artwork, as well as overall attendee comfort.” Each exhibition section requires not only the ability to moderate airflow, temperature and humidity, but also needs a way to redirect the air as required to preserve the quality of individual exhibit pieces. One structure comprises three tents connected by tunnels, with each section designed to showcase different works of art in various sizes and media, including sculpture, hanging art, and abstracts. Art Miami’s installation included approximately 1000 tons of cooling and more than 4000 kW of power. Quiet running, event-purposed rental generators, combined with environmental protection features, will supplement grid power and serve as a backup where needed. Various sizes of tent-compatible air conditioners and chillers were installed to scale to the needs of individual artists and their works. “What sets Aggreko apart in our opinion is an unbeatable combination of creative, technical expertise, and superior service,” said Alain Perez, President, Eventstar Structures. “At Eventstar, we engineer and design environments with a full commitment to customer style, and we are proud to collaborate with the team at Aggreko to help us develop flexible, creative power and cooling, for the ultimate guest experience.” A dedicated Aggreko technical team began installation four weeks before the event, and will be stationed on site throughout Art Miami to ensure all guests are comfortable, and that the artwork remains center stage. Aggreko has a long history of providing power to high-profile events, including the 2013 Presidential Inauguration and the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

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.
