HOUSTON - The United States Golf Association (USGA) awarded Aggreko LLC the contract to provide a temporary power and cooling package for the 2006-2009 U.S. Open Championships. Aggreko, a supplier of temporary power and temperature control systems, will provide portable air conditioning and power equipment for the nearly 300,000 square feet of tent space associated with the U.S. Open.

The massive tents house the media compound, the 130,000-square-foot corporate tent village, the merchandise pavilion, the Trophy Club, and the Champions Pavilion. Aggreko will use special event air conditioners and will provide electricity for the tent lighting, entertainment, catering, and business services.

Included among the equipment to be utilized at the championship tournaments are Aggreko's SuperHush generators, EnviroTank fuel tanks, HushPAC portable air conditioners, and portable outdoor electrical distribution equipment. The company's nationwide service centers will provide generators that produce enough electricity to power 2,500 offices; more than 60 miles of electrical cables; more than 2,400 20-amp, 120-volt receptacles for the caterers, televisions, and tent lights; and enough air conditioning to cool 300 offices.

In addition to the U.S. Open, Aggreko has a history of providing temporary power and temperature control equipment to golf's grand slam tournaments, such as the PGA Championship. The company's European business also recently entered into a three-year agreement with the Royal & Ancient Golf Club to supply temporary power and air conditioning to the British Open. "We are very proud to once again be a part of the U.S. Open tradition," remarked Gary Meador, national events manager of Aggreko's Event Services Division.

"We have worked with the USGA in the past, but recently re-established the relationship. Aggreko has done a great job for us in the past and we are looking forward to working with them again in the future," said Frank Bussey, field operations director for the USGA.
