“We work quietly behind the scenes, making sure the lights are powered, the sound checks run smoothly and activities are broadcasted worldwide.”

Without power, the show can’t go on

From Glastonbury and Cirque du Soleil, to the World Cup and the Olympics, we’re proud to power the world’s most exciting events. We’ve been supplying event heating and power for more than 30 years, so we know how to put on a spectacular show. We dedicate as much enthusiasm to planning your event power and temperature-control as you put in to organising things front of house.

We work quietly behind the scenes, making sure the lights are powered, the sound checks run smoothly and activities are broadcast worldwide.

So, whether you’re entertaining a festival crowd, or broadcasting to millions worldwide, we’ll take care of the details – leaving you to take centre stage.

Partnering with you, bringing reliable power and temperature control to make your event a success

With a major event, you only have one chance to get things right, so you need a partner who’ll be by your side from start to finish – especially if the event will need months, or even years, of planning.

As well as front of house and field of play, temporary event power, heating and cooling will be integral to many things behind the scenes, including hospitality, security, medical, broadcasting, ticketing and retail.

Our engineers are experienced in meeting complex challenges. If your venue’s tight on space, we can engineer our equipment to fit. If we need to install it away from your event we can bring in cabling and/or air ducting to get the power, heating and cooling to where it’s needed. What’s more, we can adapt quickly if the scope of your event changes during planning.


“Our event partners trust us to run each project on time, while keeping costs controlled. That’s why they come back year after year.”

World-class performances – whatever your event

As your technical partner, our temporary event power, heating and cooling services can help with:

  • Film, television and theatre: We power special effects, keep studios at the right temperature and help bring remote locations to life on screen.
  • Sports: We help make sure sports fans around the world enjoy their favorite games, races and competitions – whether they’re watching live, online, or on TV.
  • Concerts, festivals and tours: From the world’s biggest festivals to nation-wide tours, our event heating, cooling and power equipment helps music fans experience the best shows in town.
  • Corporate, political and social: Whether you’re launching a new product, heading a political campaign, or running a sell-out fashion show, we can provide the event power, heating and cooling equipment needed to run things effortlessly.

When you only have one chance to get things right, our event generator hire, heating and cooling equipment won’t let you down.

Silent and green - behind the scenes

The last thing your performance needs is to be drowned out by noisy equipment. With more and more events taking place outdoors in parks and green fields, it’s important to use hire equipment that meets all noise, emissions and environmental regulations. Choose temporary event power with Aggreko.

Whether it’s silent event generators, low emission biodiesel equipment, hybrid power packages or double-walled fuel tanks - we’ll work with you to understand your event's power and temperature challenges and provide the most efficient power and temperature-control equipment for the job.

Find out more information about our event generator hire, event heater hire and event cooling hire for any of your events. Contact us today and one of the Aggreko team will be happy to help.


"Having worked with Aggreko for three previous years, we had full confidence in their capabilities and knew they could scale-up to meet our more complex requirements this year".

“Aggreko helped turn an empty car park into a production space for a major international fashion event. Equipment was kept out of sight and discreet, while the team worked hard behind the scenes to help deliver a world-class event.”

“Aggreko have got a great history of providing temporary power to some of the most important sports events around the world.  And so, we were delighted to have them as our power partner here last year in Portsmouth, and this year, and I hope we’ll be working with them for many years to come.”
