The challenge

Provide behind-the-scenes power at an elite event

The Bolesworth International is one of the top equestrian events in the UK. When you get to this elite level, the events become quite extravagant. There are trade stands, catering facilities, a campsite, hospitality marquees – even a Saturday night concert. All this – plus lighting towers, commentary boxes, LED screens and the horseboxes themselves – need power.

The solution

A carefully designed power and distribution system

We’ve provided power for the Bolesworth International for four years running. We know the event inside out. But that doesn’t stop us from doing a complete reassessment every year to make sure that our power systems are spot-on for the year in question.

For the 2015 event, we hooked up all locations using plug-and-play distribution equipment and discreetly placed generators. Load-on-demand techniques minimised fuel consumption, and telemetry web technology monitored demand to optimise system performance. Plus, we had a team of engineers on site throughout the event – always ready to step up and solve any last-minute requests for more power.

The impact

Fuel costs go down and environmental performance goes up

Armed with both our on-site knowledge of the Bolesworth International and the data we get from our monitoring gear, things just keep getting better at Bolesworth. Even though the site is getting bigger and better each year, we keep finding new ways to save on fuel and improve environmental performance. 


“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.”
