Providing power and/or temperature control at a large-scale event requires planning, and an experienced team, excellent communication and equipment that is perfectly suited to the unique logistical and site demands placed upon them. If you were to combine this with many more large-scale events, watched by millions and then throw in an average daily attendance of more than 100,000?
This is exactly what The Diriyah Seasons Festival represents.
An unparalleled event, spanning two months, multiple locations and events from the global sporting and music calendar. Big names providing the entertainment for the masses – and an even bigger need for reliable power and temperature control.
How do you meet the demand for an event on such an unprecedented scale?
With expert planning, allied with a team of technicians, equipment and resources grouped together from Europe and the Middle East
There were plenty of obstacles though. Logistically-speaking, moving more than 400 generators alone would require the need for collaboration with third-party companies, placing a huge emphasis on communication and processes.
There was also the issue of a wide range of voltages and frequencies in use that any equipment in use must adhere to.
With so many people looking forward to this event extravaganza, Aggreko needed to deliver on all facets of the project – with no room for error.
