Aggreko put Media at the Heart of the Action at SportAccord Convention

BELEK, Turkey, April 3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

Aggreko, the world leader in the provision of temporary power generation and temperature control solutions, will be participating as a Silver Partner at SportAccord Convention 2014, taking place 6-11 April at the Susesi Convention Centre in Belek/Antalya, Turkey.

For the sixth consecutive year Aggreko will be hosting the event's media suite, a dedicated area for accredited international sports media that serves as a hub for interviews and press conferences. The setup will be in a prime location, ensuring it is in close proximity to the action and facilitates real-time development of news stories.

For more than 50 years Aggreko's involvement in the sports industry has gone far beyond the simple provision of rental services. They have a solid understanding of the sports world's often complex structures and have worked with nine Olympic Games, five FIFA World Cups (including FIFA World Cup 2014) and numerous Formula One races.

"Aggreko's continued support of the Convention highlights their commitment to the sports industry," said Nis Hatt, Managing Director of SportAccord Convention.

"With some of the world's most iconic sports events on their business profile, Aggreko have a proven track record of working with the industry's leaders. In addition to their wealth of experience, Aggreko are known for delivering quality service to key global events and we are really looking forward to working with them in Turkey."

SportAccord Convention serves as the primary networking platform for international sport and Aggreko is working hard in its preparations for the event.

"Industry platforms such as the SportAccord Convention are essential in helping to bring together key players with proven industry capabilities, ensuring the continued success of any sport event, said David de Behr, Head of Major Events at Aggreko EMEA.

"It takes a considerable amount of experience and expertise to successfully execute projects in the world of sport. Their high visibility and transient nature means that providers need to be 10 steps ahead when planning, installing and running critical services."

"Reliable temporary power and temperature control solutions are essential for the success of any sport event, especially when you consider the endless auxiliary services that rely on constant power - broadcasting, hospitality, security, cleaning and waste and logistics to name but a few. We are proud to be part of this year's SportAccord Convention for the sixth time, and look forward to continued service delivery success to the sport industry."

About Aggreko 

Aggreko plc is the world leader in the supply of temporary power and temperature control solutions. Aggreko employs over 6,000 people operating from 202 locations. In 2013 we served customers in about 100 countries, and had revenues of approximately GBP 1.6bn (USD 2.5bn or Euros 1.9bn). Aggreko plc is listed on the London Stock Exchange (AGK.L), is a member of the FTSE-100 index, and is headquartered in Scotland.

Aggreko provides power and temperature control solutions to customers who need them either very quickly, or for a short or indeterminate length of time. Examples would be the supply of power to an industrial site which needs to service its permanent power supply, supplying a whole city in times of power shortage, or providing a major sporting event with power and cooling systems. We serve our customers either through our 202 service centres, which we call the Local business, or globally through our Power Projects business.

In the Local business, which accounts for about half of our revenues, we hire our equipment to customers, who then operate it for themselves, although we retain responsibility for servicing and maintaining it. In the Power Projects business, which also accounts for about half of our revenues, we operate as a power producer. We install and operate power plants and we charge our customers both for providing the generating capacity, and for the electricity we produce. We design and manufacture equipment specifically for these requirements in our factory in Dumbarton, Scotland.

Recent customers include the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, the Ryder Cup, Cirque du Soleil and the power utilities in over 50 countries including the UK, France, Ivory Coast, Mozambique, Indonesia, Bangladesh, Argentina, Venezuela, Chile, Brazil and the USA.

In 2013 we fulfilled almost 48,000 customers' assignments and 72% of those who responded to our research gave us a recommendation of 9 or 10 out of 10.
