October 26, 2011
EDMONTON, Alberta — Aggreko, a global leader in rental power, temperature control, and oil-free compressed air solutions, continued its expansion in western Canada with the opening of a larger, enhanced service center in Edmonton, Alberta. The company opened its first service center in Edmonton in 2007, and said it is now tripling the size of the operation to meet high demand. The new 33,000-square-foot facility includes a larger shop to perform major equipment maintenance, repairs, and retrofits locally. In addition, the company has increased its staff of sales and service personnel.

“Aggreko is committed to maintaining a superior level of local service and support to our valued oil and gas customers in Alberta,” said Dennis Haller, vice president, Aggreko Canada. “We’re proud to expand our service center and provide clients with reliable, energy-efficient temporary power solutions that meet their rising demand to get operations online sooner.”

Aggreko will supply the area with all the company’s major rental product lines, including:

• Power generators from 30 kW to 1,500 kW;

• New gas generators, 65 kW to 1,300 kW;

• Temperature-control equipment — chillers, air conditioners, electric heaters, and cooling towers;

• Oil-free air compressors, both diesel and electric; and

• Refinery-grade heat exchangers.

The Edmonton facility will also provide engineering support from Aggreko Process Services (APS), an engineering team that helps customers improve their processes and operations to enhance performance and address environmental concerns.

“We are excited to be part of the Edmonton community and employ local people as we grow,” said Sue McGregor, vice president, area general manager for western Canada. “The increased demand for our services allows Aggreko to expand our fleet, assist with more local expertise, and provide our valued customer base with enhanced offerings such as our new rental natural gas generators.”

Aggreko also operates Canadian service centers in Fort McMurray, Fort St. John, Montreal, Ottawa, Sarnia, and Toronto.
