History

Aggreko was founded in the Netherlands by Luc Koopman in 1962.[3] It moved to Scotland in 1973, and was acquired by Christian Salvesen plc in 1984.[3] It was demerged from Christian Salvesen, and first listed on the London Stock Exchange in February 1997.[3] In October 2003 up until December 2012, it supplied a temporary power station to the country of Sri Lanka, called the Aggreko Power Station.

The company acquired substantially all the activities (other than those relating to large gas turbines) of General Electric Energy Rentals for total consideration of circa US$212m in December 2006.[4] It became the sole supplier for temporary power and temperature controls for the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games in August 2008, and the sole supplier for temporary power for the London 2012 Olympic Games in August 2012.[5][6]

It was also the provider of temporary power for the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games, and air conditioning and power for the 2017 WNBA Finals.[7][8] In March 2012, Aggreko acquired 100% of the operations of Poit Energia, a supplier of power generation equipment in Latin America.[9] In July 2017, Aggreko announced the acquisition of battery storage company, Younicos.[10]

The Aggreko Power Station was a temporary 20-megawatt fuel oil-fired power station which was commissioned in October 2003 after Aggreko, the world's largest temporary power generation company, won an open bid offered by the Ceylon Electricity Board to overcome the Sri Lanka energy crisis faced in the 1990s to early 2000s. It was later decommissioned on 31 December 2012. Prior to decommissioning, Aggreko sold electricity to the Ceylon Electricity Board at a rate of Rs. 26 per KWh.
