By Sarah Ann McCay05 December 2013
Cirque du Soleil has appointed Aggreko as its global supplier of temporary power and temperature control systems for its big top touring productions for the next four years.
Aggreko will work on Cirque du Soleil’s five big top shows at all tour locations, providing power and temperature control in the US, Canada, Latin America, Europe and Asia Pacific.
The firm will ensure each location has a stable and reliable power supply independent of the local electricity grid. Aggreko will also provide Cirque du Soleil with an integrated heating and cooling system to ensure targeted temperatures are maintained, whether performances take place in the Brazilian summer or Russian winter.
“This is a fantastic alliance for us", said Louis Malafarina, Cirque du Soleil corporate alliances director, "Aggreko will provide a complete solution for uninterruptable power along with an innovative and energy efficient temperature control solution that meets the unique needs of our Big Top Touring shows.”
Rupert Soames, chief executive of Aggreko, said; “We are delighted to be partnering with such an iconic global entertainment brand as Cirque du Soleil.
“Our extensive experience in supporting major intentional events along with our global footprint, make Aggreko an excellent match for Cirque du Soleil’s power and temperature control requirements.”
