Beijing Olympic Games 2008
Aggreko was responsible for the supply of power to both the
National Stadium and the International Broadcast Centre, which was
responsible for transmitting the ceremony to an estimated 4 billion
viewers worldwide as well as 100,000 people in the stadium.
Aggreko provided 140 MW of temporary power across 37 Olympic venues in
3 cities: Beijing, Qingdao and Hong Kong. The power, enough to
supply over 150,000 homes, will be provided by generators located at each
venue and distributed through 470 km of cable and 2,000
distribution panels. Aggreko is employing around 200 staff on the
contract, many of whom have been recruited in China, to install,
maintain and operate the equipment.

organise a visit to your site and explore your specific event power solutions.
