Oil Platform Temporary Power | Case Study | Aggreko

Emergency restarting of a Gulf of Mexico platform

The Challenge to the Customer

When a major oil company platform in the Gulf of Mexico needed immediate temporary power, they turned to Aggreko. Due to technical difficulties, the on-board generators were shut down leaving the platform without power and a possible expensive production shutdown.

Aggreko's Solution

In just two days, Aggreko had eight 800 kW, 480 V generators on site. Less than two days later, the generators were powering the platform. As this solution proved economical, the company converted the generators to a long-term lease.

This was our first experience with Aggreko. They performed so well, we won’t hesitate to use them again. We are very impressed, said the project's supervising engineer.
