Aggreko offers use of 1,300 small gensets

By KHL Staff03 April 2020

Aggreko has offered the UK government up to 1,300 small generator units without charge to support temporary COVID-19 testing sites across the UK.

Temporary testing sites are being established across the country and as the number of sites increases, so does the need for reliable power. Aggreko has offered the use of its available fleet of small canopy generators, up to 1,300 units.

Chris Rason, Managing Director at Aggreko Northern Europe, said: “Aggreko is ready to help the COVID-19 relief effort in any way that we can and we are already supporting the healthcare, pharmaceutical and food and beverage industries.

”The need for more COVID-19 testing sites across the country is clear, and our generators can be deployed very rapidly to ensure consistent and stable power to temporary venues.

“If we can be of service, we are ready and willing to help. As many of these units had been earmarked for outdoor events, such as Glastonbury, that have largely been cancelled or postponed, we are offering them pro-bono. All that’s needed is fuel and freight costs to start providing power.”

The generators can be remotely monitored without the need for an engineer to be physically present, which is a benefit at a time when social distancing is being practiced.
