The construction and
commissioning of an
intercontinental gas pipeline
This $45b investment is one of the largest projects of this type ever undertaken.
The pipeline runs across two continents spanning a total of six countries. The pipeline, once complete, will deliver an alternative source of energy to millions of people. However, the distances, environmental conditions and remote nature of the route provided numerous challenges.
Power shortages and failures were not an option for the team involved as strict financial constraints and ambitious delivery timelines were of paramount importance. They required mobile and modular power solutions for camps, construction, pipe welding, commissioning and testing, so they turned to Aggreko.

Aggreko project delivery
as a global player with
The customer and their suppliers engaged with Aggreko in the early stages of the project, knowing that’s when our engineering and project management teams’ involvement would deliver the most value.
Aggreko provided camp power and placed the fleet and technicians strategically, in order to deliver power to the customers when and where they needed it. Our containerised, modular equipment was ideal for the project and local Aggreko teams were able to mobilise Aggreko’s design and project management guaranteed a service that meant the customer avoided unnecessary across borders with ease, delivering on time due to a wealth of experience operating in the region.
Our Aggreko Remote Monitoring (ARM) system allowed our technicians to track the performance of each piece of equipment, which ensured that power outages were avoided, ultimately reducing the manpower required to cover the fleet. This also lowered the travel time of our technicians and as a result, reducing the risk of road traffic incidents in some very remote areas.
The Aggreko Difference
Powering projects along pipelines and across borders
Safe delivery of power and the further strengthening of a customer relationship
Aggreko’s design and project management guaranteed a service that meant the customer avoided unnecessary delays to their project schedule or additional cost due to power issues.
We understand that Aggreko operate in some of the most remote and challenging environments and their equipment is designed to perform on projects such as ours. The local team were experienced in mobilising equipment across regional borders, something our other suppliers found challenging. Aggreko are aligned to our safety standards and ensured that despite the timelines and challenges of the environment, safety standards were never compromised.
