Sustainability insights from field trials conducted by Aggreko and Sir Robert McAlpine

Net zero cannot be achieved in isolation. Even the most ambitious businesses will struggle to deliver lasting changes without cooperating with partners and other supporting organisations across the supply chain.

It’s this idea that forms the basis of an in-depth study between ourselves and Sir Robert McAlpine. Both companies have been reforming their approach by analysing how equipment performs on site and determining where improvements can be made – not only to keep net zero ambitions on track but also to demonstrate that this kind of strategic knowledge-sharing holds the keys to real progress.

In 2021, we were brought on board to conduct a range of field trials at Sir Robert McAlpine’s Kettering plant. The tests looked to understand which of our generator set-ups was most efficient for providing power on site, in turn giving both organisations the practical knowledge needed to make more sustainable decisions at other projects across the country. The results of those trials are discussed in this report.
