Mexico City, Mexico
- Aggreko, the world leader in the provision of temporary power
and temperature control solutions, today launches its multi-megawatt power project division in Mexico as part of its expansion plan into the Americas region, enabling the company to better support its customers in the utilities, oil and gas, and mining industries.
"Aggreko has been operating in Mexico since 2006 and to date has been focused on smaller projects. In context, that could be roughly anything from 30 kVA up to 10 MW. However, continued economic growth in recent years has created opportunities for the development of larger temporary power projects that can require anything from 10 MW to over 200 MW. Addressing this opportunity, Aggreko has set up a new multi-megawatt power project division in Mexico, which will be dedicated to providing larger-scale power solutions as per market demands." said Ana Amicarella, Managing Director of the Americas Power Projects division.
Aggreko provides solutions that run on diesel and natural gas. The gas offer, for example, stands out as a solution that allows companies to reduce their power generation costs due to lower operational costs.
Aggreko’s global rental fleet has a total generating capacity of over 9,500 MW, enabling them to meet large power requirements during unexpected growth and demands, or in remote locations where grid is not available. Aggreko’s 20 foot stackable containerised units are designed to be easily transported by sea, air or land. "Our customers can opt to rent a power plant for either short or long periods of time. We have over 6,000 dedicated professionals who are trained to design custom solutions that include operations, logistics, planning, implementation and project commissioning, allowing customers to focus on their business targets." Ana concluded.
Aggreko’s turnkey power projects solutions are suitable for various industries such as utilities, mining, oil & gas, construction and events (local and global) amongst others. In addition, Aggreko’s larger projects are often the conduit to local job generation and technical knowledge transfer, contributing to the increasing talent pool of expert technicians in Latin America.
