Aggreko, which provided power for the event for the 23rd time, was responsible
for the CBS Compound as well as the international broadcast and a large part of
the halftime show, all of which operated flawlessly and with no reported outages
throughout the event.
Aggreko provided the event with 15MW of electricity (enough to power over 6,000
homes) and a crew of 20 to install and operate the site to make sure the
equipment ran smoothly.
Asterios Satrazemis, president for The Americas at Aggreko, said:
"It is always an honor to be part of such a major global sporting event and we
are proud that the service we provided this year remained robust throughout the
Aggreko plc is the world leader in the supply of temporary power and temperature
control solutions. Aggreko employs over 4,500 people operating from 165
locations. In 2011 we served customers in about 100 countries, and had revenues
of approximately GBP 1.4bn (USD 2.2bn or Euros 1.6bn). 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 visit the company

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.
