Power Bridging and Grid Planning Solutions for the Utility Industry

Mitigate service interruption delays and keep your customers operating

We partner with utilities providers to ensure uninterrupted power supply in the event of delays or service initiation issues.

When utility power companies encounter power connection delays or supply interruptions, we proactively provide temporary power solutions to ensure delivery is achieved and maintained. With a range of custom solutions and fuel options, we can help with seasonal shortages, project delays, emergency maintenance, and planned maintenance.

We also provide energy during critical construction, commissioning, and maintenance cycles of your power infrastructure. Our solutions support peak shaving, delivering better grid reliability and helping you manage short-term demand spikes. Wherever supply falls short, we have you covered.

All with a unique level of agility which means we can evolve as your project requirements change and respond with fast, flexible solutions whenever you need them.

Utility power bridging solutions

In the event of a service interruption or delay in delivering grid connectivity, we enable utility companies to meet scheduled dates and avoid penalties. Our temporary off-grid power generation solutions are designed to step in seamlessly–count on us to keep you running smoothly, even in the face of service initiation challenges.

  • Diesel generators in sizes from 30 to 2100 kVA, allowing you to access power distribution alternatives on any scale to deal with power infrastructure delays, construction challenges, and power grid connectivity issues.
  • Gas generators and dual-fuel options with lean burn technology, so you can close the gap between grid connectivity and scheduled dates without compromising on nitrogen oxide and particulate matter emissions. All while reducing your fuel costs compared to diesel.
  • Electrical distribution and ancillary equipment including breakers, distribution panels, fuel tanks and everything else you need to provide power.
  • Battery Energy Storage Services (BESS) to store excess power that you generate and reuse it whenever you need to, unlocking new ways to increase your efficiency while grid infrastructure issues are resolved.
  • Loadbanks to support your power system testing and ensure your temporary power bridging solution can withstand full capacity demand from the moment it becomes operational.

FAQs about Aggreko’s grid resilience solutions

What causes power service disruptions and delays?

Utility power companies often face delays as a result of supply chain issues. When your complex grid infrastructure depends on multiple external partners, it’s easy for one small issue to ripple out across your entire project–and make your scheduled delivery impossible. Common causes of delays include power line installation delays, the need for unexpected power system upgrades, and unanticipated demand. Aggreko can help solve all these problems with utility power and transmission line alternatives wherever you need them.

What makes Aggreko’s service interruption solutions different?

At Aggreko, we evaluate your current energy mix and planned grid strategy to deliver a turnkey solution. With no ‘one size fits all’ approach, we put your requirements first: from anticipated demand and schedules to maintaining a dominant baseload position and controlling the levelized cost of energy.
