“Power plants can only run at their best with regular maintenance. However, you need to keep planned outages to a minimum, or risk letting your customers down.”

Utility power systems that support you and your customers

Our expertise in utility power solutions is second to none. Whether you’re bringing a wind turbine or nuclear plant online, need high voltage back-up power during planned maintenance or require emergency back-up power, we’ll respond quickly to keep things on track.

We know that no two plants are the same. So instead of supplying off-the-shelf utility power rentals, we listen to your needs, work out the best approach, then deliver, install and monitor the best kit for the job.

Most of the time, this means we custom-design utility power systems. And this is where we excel. Our electrical engineers and industry-savvy technicians are trained to work in the utility power industry, which means we know how to reduce outages, keep customer interruptions to a minimum and maintain a safe working environment.

You’ll be in safe hands with us as your utility power partner.

Keep power flowing to your customers emergency back-up power

Our experienced utility engineers can help you by:

  • Working quickly to restore utility power supply with backup or emergency power systems during outages caused by weather, equipment breakdown, or natural disasters
  • Finding the best way to avoid disruptions during routine maintenance or grid upgrades
  • Supplying low and high voltage utility power systems designed to maintain your plant’s capacity
  • Carrying out renewable plant testing and commissioning to help you achieve certifications and get online faster

Your customers depend on you, so when the unexpected happens we’ll be there to back you up.

“It’s essential for utility companies to keep the lights on for their customers. We understand power plants and grids inside out, so we can get things online fast.”

Keep downtime to a minimum in the most efficient way

Power plants can’t run at their best without regular maintenance. However, you need to keep planned outages to a minimum, or risk letting your customers down.

We can help you review your processes and plan the best approach to your maintenance schedules to reduce your outage days.

During maintenance, we can supply high-voltage switchgear and transformers that sync with the grid to augment, or replace, power. And if you face a sudden utility power outage, our expertise and fast turnaround times for providing emergency back-up power mean that we can get you back online as quickly and as painlessly as possible.

Keeping environments and assets cool and dry

With an extensive fleet of temperature control equipment, there are many ways we can support your mission-critical projects. From making confined environments workable with temporary comfort cooling, to installing dehumidification systems to preserve equipment and protect turbines from corrosion.

We also have the skills and accreditation to provide comprehensive utility power and cooling systems for nuclear plants, including efficient cooling of spent nuclear fuel – something very few companies can claim.

Contact Aggreko today -  we will be happy to discuss your power, heating and cooling requirements.

“Argentina has a high-quality grid with unique requirements. We chose Aggreko as our temporary power supplier due to their ability to adapt their equipment to our voltage frequency and PF control applications, as well as providing power in both grid and island mode. We are pleased that Aggreko is offering its services in Argentina at such competitive prices.”

Santiago Pierro Director ,
Energia Argentina S.A.

“The demand for electricity in Kenya continues to rise. As a direct result of the productive partnership between KenGen and Aggreko, together with the efficient way Aggreko has managed the temporary power contract, we have not had to ration power in Kenya.”

Eddy Njoroge Managing Director ,
Kenya Generating Electricity Company Ltd

“During this time of transition for the island’s power infrastructure, it has been invaluable to have Aggreko working with us to ensure that power supplies have not been affected. The Aggreko solution has been an integral part of our plan to upgrade the existing power stations on the island.”
