A high-rise build that needed power fast
A construction site is always consuming power. You need power to do the work, but you need to do the work before you can connect to the grid. Going for Temporary power is the right choice, but it needs to be just right for your need, or you end up with not enough amps and more headaches. It’s an issue we know well, so when a contractor, learned they’d have to wait six to eight weeks for power connections, they called us in. The challenge was to deliver an immediate energy source powerful enough to run a 20-storey build, compact enough to fit on the site and smart enough to take care of itself.

The wait to get on the grid
Thanks to fuel management
Power in days, support throughout the project
We know every site is different, so we did a site visit, working closely with the general contractor to find out exactly what they needed. Within days, we delivered a 300 kW diesel generator, transformer and distribution panel, small enough to move through the active works and fit snugly within the site footprint.
Meanwhile, our complete fuel management service kept supply efficient and hassle-free, with a fuel schedule in sync with the site’s operating pattern – and no need for refueling.
The Aggreko difference
You’re not just getting the hardware, you’re getting a whole team.
Saving time and money from start to finish
Without the six to eight weeks’ downtime, construction started right away, while continuous support gave the site team absolute confidence. The result? Huge cost savings thanks to a ready-to-go package as reliable as grid power, with none of the expensive delays.
“Once the generator was in place, it pretty much ran itself, so our customer could focus on getting the build finished on time, instead of worrying about the power supply.”
