Aggreko’s first India depot opens at Pune
Aggreko, the leading global player in rental power solutions and temperature control services has announced the opening of its first depot in India. Located at Wagholi village (Pune), the depot represents part of Aggreko’s initial investment of Rs300 million in the country and will cater to India’s growing demand for temporary power solutions. The company had entered the domestic market earlier this year after acquiring Cummins India Ltd’s power rental business.
The depot was inaugurated by Kash Pandya, MD, Aggreko International and James Shepherd, MD, South and West Asia. The depot will provide temporary power for industries such as manufacturing, oil and gas, shipping, process industries, mining and construction, as well as for major sporting events. Aggreko can also provide multi-megawatt power projects to support the rapid growth of India and to assist in overcoming capacity constraints.
Speaking at the opening Pandya said, “With over 45 years experience, Aggreko has a deep and thorough understanding of the power rental business. Our equipment is specifically designed for rental power applications and Aggreko is known throughout the world as a company which offers the highest standards of quality and service. We understand India’s power requirements across all regions and we are excited to be able to provide high quality rental power to different industries.”
The company has in the past provided turnkey power packages for customers in a variety of industries, including ABB, BG Group, ConocoPhillips, Fluor, IBM, Samsung, Shell and Tata Chemicals. In the past two years, Aggreko has delivered over 160 MVA of temporary power to the Beijing Olympics, powered the European Football Championships and has been selected to supply the power for the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver.
