Aggreko partners with Relevant Solutions LLC to provide additional fleet

Aggreko, the world leading provider of temporary power, heating, cooling, and oil-free air compressors, is now the preferred rental channel partner for Relevant Solutions LLC, formerly known as Industrial Compressor Services (ICS).

Relevant Solutions LLC specializes in the design and packaging of large centrifugal oil-free air compressors for the rental market. Aggreko’s manufacturing, air separation, petrochemical and refining customers often utilize these types of compressors for permanent utility installations.

Aggreko has a large customer base throughout North America. Through this strategic partnership, Aggreko’s North American division is able to expand its fleet size across 60 service centers, providing additional coverage to industries that require large volumes of 100 percent oil-free air as a part of their process. The joint fleet offering gives Aggreko the ability to meet high demands with the very best solutions offered in the industry.

“After several years of operating on a project specific basis, it is gratifying to get a formal agreement in place that allows both of our companies to seamlessly meet the needs of customers,” said Mark Shedd, Head of Oil-free Air Compressors, Aggreko, North America.

Aggreko’s customers are already realizing the benefits of this partnership. For example, the company has just completed the installation of 165,000 SCFM of oil-free compressed air and 33 MW of power along with associated accessories. The installation will allow a major refiner to replicate the feed air blower for one of its coker units, and support continued daily operations without experiencing costly downtimes.


Aggreko plc is the world leader in the supply of temporary power and temperature control solutions. Aggreko employs over 7,700 people operating from 211 locations. In 2014 we served customers in about 100 countries, and had revenues of approximately GBP 1.6bn (USD 2.6bn or Euros 2.0bn). Aggreko plc is listed on the London Stock Exchange (AGK.L), is a member of the FTSE-100 index, and is headquartered in Scotland.

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 211 service centres, which we call the Local business, or globally through our 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 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 2014 FIFA World Cup BrazilTM, the XX Commonwealth Games and Cirque du Soleil and the power utilities in over 50 countries including the UK, France, Ivory Coast, Mozambique, Indonesia, Bangladesh, Argentina, Venezuela, Chile, Brazil and the USA.

In 2014 we fulfilled over 55,000 customers’ assignments and of those who responded to our research, 67% gave us a recommendation of 9 or 10 out of 10.
