HOUSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aggreko, the global leader in temporary power and temperature control services, has introduced an innovation to make it easier for customers to access utility-scale power in challenging geographic areas.
“The mobile service centers will help to solve the unique issues our customers face in getting power in remote locations, including the mountains of Northern Alberta, where grid access does not exist and the nearest utility is miles away. They will provide the superior, highly responsive service our customers need.”
New, customizable, mobile service centers will provide customers with immediate access to Aggreko’s rental fleet, maintenance services, sales personnel and technicians. They will be of particular relevance for mining companies and oil and gas production.
“Aggreko has served the mining and oil and gas industries for more than 50 years, and we are proud to provide this new offering,” said Robert Harrison, Vice President, Area General Manager, Aggreko Canada. “The mobile service centers will help to solve the unique issues our customers face in getting power in remote locations, including the mountains of Northern Alberta, where grid access does not exist and the nearest utility is miles away. They will provide the superior, highly responsive service our customers need.”
Aggreko’s mobile centers are tailored to customer requirements, offering fast access to many of the company’s major rental product lines including:
- Power generators from 30 kW to 1500 kW with diesel, natural gas and HFO options, designed for remote sites and harsh operating conditions
- Temperature control units including chillers, air conditioners and electric heaters
- Oil-free air compressors
- Refinery-grade heat exchangers
In addition to quicker access to its rental fleet, Aggreko customers will have the option of 24/7 on-site monitoring and maintenance, and the sites will also benefit from Aggreko's comprehensive environmental protection measures.
Aggreko will be available to discuss the mobile service centers at the upcoming PDAC International Convention, March 3-6, in Toronto, at the Metro Toronto Convention Center, South Building, Booth 947.

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 165 service centers, 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 2011 we fulfilled almost 43,000 customers’ assignments and when researched, 69% of them gave us a recommendation of 9 or 10 out of 10.
