Aggreko named as supplier for Crown Commercial Service
Aggreko, has been confirmed as a supplier on the Crown Commercial Service’s Heat Networks and Electricity Generation Assets (HELGA) Dynamic Purchasing System.
Crown Commercial Service (CCS) supports the public sector to achieve maximum commercial value when procuring common goods and services. CCS has procured a number of energy demand management and generation services, including Aggreko, making it easier for public bodies and the wider public sector to find the right suppliers for solar panels, wind turbines, heat networks, battery storage and more.
By being recognised as CCS supplier, Aggreko will have opportunities to tender for multiple governmental projects over the next four years. The HELGA agreement has been designed to allow large schemes to be broken into smaller, more accessible projects, while it will also allow suppliers to be involved with the public sector’s drive to reduce its environmental impact.
John Eardley, Sector Development Manager for Distributed Energy and Renewables at Aggreko, commented: “This is an exciting journey that Aggreko is about to embark upon, providing us with lots of opportunity to tender for public sector projects and being a driving force in reducing the sector’s impact on the environment.
“At Aggreko, we’ve already started to expand our services; from behind the meter work and the micro grid, through to the renewables industry and balancing networks. We are looking forward to enhancing this offering through the support of the HELGA agreement, while also helping to ensure public sector projects run on time and within budget.”
CCS supports the public sector to achieve maximum commercial value when procuring common goods and services. In 2017/18, CCS delivered £354 million in commercial benefits including savings for central government, and £247 million for the wider public sector - helping to deliver world-class public services that offer best value for taxpayers.
Aggreko will now start tendering for key governmental projects.
