Media Release: Aggreko builds reputation for construction solutions


AGGREKO, a global leader in temporary power and temperature control solutions, provided a temporary heating and dehumidification package to main contractors FCC Elliott Construction to assist in the construction programme of the new 312-bed South West Acute Hospital at Enniskillen in Northern Ireland.

Aggreko initially supplied six 125 kW IDF heaters and 12 1600 KT dehumidifier packages to dry and heat the clinical and ward blocks of the new hospital – to 6C – to enable painting of the interiors.

Moisture and temperature control equipment was also supplied in basement corridors to protect electrical equipment and busbars from moisture.

The temporary dehumidifiers were deployed on site in sequence to remove excess moisture from each block of the hospital.

Flexible ducting took hot air from the temporary heaters to each floor, and polyducting was suspended from corridor ceilings to distribute air throughout each floor area.

Howard Sharp, construction director at FCC Elliott Construction, said: “Aggreko provided an effective temporary moisture and temperature control solution which is assisting us to continue to deliver this high quality healthcare facility on time and on budget.

“Their technical expertise and professional, high standard of service throughout the project has been invaluable on such a large, high-profile scheme.”

Martin Byrne, sales manager at Aggreko, said: “It is vital that construction programmes run according to schedule, particularly on major developments, as delays can have a huge impact on project costs.

“Our temporary dehumidification and temperature control equipment, which is available for hire ensures the correct conditions for electrical installations and internal finishes such as paint and floor coverings, assisting contractors to deliver projects to meet their clients’ requirements.”

Aggreko provides power and temperature control solutions to customers who need them either very quickly, or for a short or indeterminate length of time.

Examples would be the supply of power to an industrial site which needs to service its permanent power supply, supplying a whole city in times of power shortage, or providing a major sporting event with power and cooling systems.  We serve our customers either through our 148 service centres, which we call the Local Business, or globally through our International Power Projects business.

In the Local business, which accounts for about half of our revenues, we hire our equipment to customers, who then operate it for themselves, although we retain responsibility for servicing and maintaining it.

In the International Power Projects business, which also accounts for about half of our revenues, we operate as a power producer. We install and operate power plants and we charge our customers both for providing the generating capacity, and for the electricity we produce.

We design and manufacture equipment specifically for these requirements in our factory in Dumbarton, Scotland.

Recent customers include the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games, the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games and the power utilities in over 50 countries including the UK, France, Angola, Kenya, Indonesia, Bangladesh, Venezuela, Chile, Brazil and the USA.

In 2010, we fulfilled almost 40,000 customers’ assignments and when researched, 68 per cent of them gave us a recommendation of nine or ten out of ten.
