The Challenge

To power the largest logistics centre in Spain in time for Black Friday

In Spain, the country’s largest logistics centre was in the process of being completed. This acts as a hub for the customer to deliver goods across the country.

With Black Friday approaching, the customer had a pressing need to ensure that the centre was completed and operational. 

That would require a grid connection, but this would not be accomplished before the big day, leaving the customer looking at a huge amount of lost income.

With the scale of the centre and the time constraints, the customer searched for a partner that could fulfil this power demand in the time necessary.

Only Aggreko could fit the bill.
