Aggreko Provides Emergency Power to a Gulf Rig

The Challenge for the Customer

Technical problems with on-board generators in this Gulf of Mexico based rig meant emergency shut-down. Restoring power was essential to maintain production and all support services.

Aggreko’s Solution

Aggreko provided eight 800 kW 480 V generators delivered and installed on the rig in less than two days. Within a further 48 hours power was fully restored and the situation back to normal.   

The Benefits to the Customer

The speed of Aggreko’s response minimised lost production and disruption. Although the firm used Aggreko as an emergency solution to start with, the hire arrangement was cost efficient for them. As a result the contract was converted to a long term lease. In the words of our customer:

This was our first experience with Aggreko. They performed so well, we won’t hesitate to use them again. We are very impressed
