Power plants

Powering everyday life

Without electricity, factories could not operate, hospitals could not offer lifesaving operations and communities would not be able to power essential facilities. We help to keep services like these running by deploying our rental power plants to:

  • Bring power in hard to reach, or inhospitable, locations such as offshore, high altitudes and deserts
  • Support developing regions while local governments and utilities build their own power plants
  • Substitute for the grid supply when it is not available
  • Respond swiftly if natural disasters leave local communities without power for essential services

So when you need power for your community, you can count on us.

Power plants to meet your needs

When you need to run a large-scale operation, power an entire city or an entire mine there are many complex criteria to consider.

Because we design, build and run our power plants, our technicians can install a multi-megawatt plant within weeks. We start by working with you to find the best location for your plant. We consider environmental and local regulations and create detailed plans, including 3D modelling of the proposed site.

We can take care of civil works, if needed – levelling the ground, building roads, putting in drainage and laying fuel lines.

We put safety first and when we build a power plant we:

  • Supply generators, transformers and switchgear
  • Provide fuel management systems, fuel tanks, monitor fuel levels and schedule deliveries
  • Supply control rooms, operated 24/7 by our experienced plant technicians
  • Supply high-voltage and low-voltage power cables
  • Provide safety management practices to keep workers safe

As supply needs change we can scale up or down on both installed capacity and fuel contracts.

Being the one power supplier, we provide the in house engineering and technical support reducing administration, providing higher service levels, quicker response and problem resolution. It simplifies business operations.

We can train local people to run the power plant until not needed anymore then we will decommission the equipment and remove it from your site.


Supplementing your existing power supply

Sometimes, the demand on your utility can exceed the supply – particularly in rapidly developing regions. You can rent equipment to make up the shortfall until the utility can meet your supply needs. We can:

  • Install distributed power generation systems
  • Supply power when your plant is down for maintenance
  • Apply peak shaving to reduce exposure to high market prices
  • Support you during infrastructure upgrades by powering areas not yet connected to the grid
  • Plug the gap when renewable energies can’t generate enough power to meet demand – such as hydropower plants during droughts or wind farms during storm season

We can run our plants in grid mode, to supply power to your grid, or we can work in island mode to supply power directly to one area, such as a remote mining operation or an oil field. We can run our generators using the fuel source you already have in place – saving you money.


For more than 20 years, Aggreko has been delivering power to satisfy the needs of customers in a range of industries, in different configurations, in harsh environments and remote locations.

With our vast range of generators and power plant solutions and our worldwide presence, we can deliver virtually any solution anywhere. We can respond at short notice and install our equipment within days in most locations, depending on the amount of power you need.

Our robust design practises ensures that the power plant will deliver power reliably. Any size power source from 10 KW to 250MW is available as and when needed. This scalable solution matches capacity with the demand to ensure the plant runs at maximum efficiency giving you maximum return on the investment.

We can supply diesel or gas fuel to power the plant and equipment and we can change the fuel type at minimal cost giving you the lowest cost fuel option


"When a power plant goes online there’s no better feeling in the world. Especially in remote areas where it makes a real difference to community life."
