Aggreko wins 100 MW Saudia Arabia power contract

By Murray Pollok26 June 2009

Aggreko has won a contract to supply 100 MW of power to the Saudi Electric Company (SEC) to help overcome seasonal power shortages in Saudi Arabia.

The contract is expected to last for a minimum of three months and will take to over 170 MW the total capacity being supplied by Aggreko to SEC.

Aggreko is supplying the power at six sites in the Qassim region, north of the Saudi capital Riyadh. Mid-day temperatures in Saudi Arabia can exceed 50ÂșC, and power demand from air conditioning and temperature control systems can produce power shortages.

Rupert Soames, Aggreko's chief executive officer, said the contract demonstrated Aggreko's ability to respond quickly; "We were able to propose an appropriate solution within just a few days and we will be supplying power to the people of Saudi Arabia within five weeks."
