Share Article

Aggreko will supply additional power to six World Cup host cities throughout Canada.

Aggreko, the world leader in rental power, heating, cooling and oil-free air compressors is powering the 2015 Women’s World Cup tournament being held in six different cities across Canada from June 6 to July 5, 2015.

Aggreko is providing 12 technicians and more than 40 generators totalling 17.6 MW of reliable power to energize the tournament’s on-pitch advertising boards displayed around the ground floor of each stadium field and the Field of Play lighting in Edmonton and Moncton.

Aggreko is also the main power source for the television broadcast in each host city where the matches are played, and to the main International Broadcast Centre (IBC) housed in Vancouver.

“Aggreko is pleased to be powering another World Cup event, especially after a successful power installation at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil,” said Gary Meador, Head of Aggreko Event Services North America. “We continue to hold our position as the leader in powering national and international high-profile events and are proud to support the seventh Women’s World Cup.”

When the Women’s World Cup wraps up, Aggreko will shift its focus to Toronto and power the largest multi-sporting event ever held in Canada, The 2015 TORONTO Pan Am & Parapan American Games starting July 10. This will be Aggreko’s third time supporting both the Pan Am & Parapan American Games and the broadcast center with its power systems and temperature control solutions.


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.
