28 May 2013: SAINT JOHN, NB - To meet the growing temporary power needs of oil and gas customers in Atlantic Canada, Aggreko, the global leader in temporary power generation, temperature control and oil-free compressed air solutions, has opened a 10,000 sq ft mobile service center facility in Saint John, New Brunswick. Introduced in February 2013, Aggreko’s customizable, mobile service centres are designed for rapid deployment to provide customers with immediate access to the company’s rental fleet, maintenance services, sales personnel and technicians. Aggreko first established itself in Saint John in 2012, and is expanding its Atlantic Canada operations to support booming local industries, including petrochemical, refining, offshore oil & gas, mining, and power generation and transmission. In addition, the company will offer customers access to the largest fleet of rental equipment throughout Atlantic Canada.
“Aggreko is committed to maintaining a superior level of local service and support to our valued customers in the Atlantic Canada region,” said Peter Brouwer, Vice President, Area General Manager, East Canada, Aggreko. “We’re proud to expand our mobile service centre offering and provide engineered temporary power, heating and cooling solutions designed to reduce downtime during periods of turnarounds and maintenance.”
The mobile service centre will supply the area with all the company’s major rental product lines, including:
- Power generators from 30 kW to 1,500 kW
- New natural gas generators, 65 kW and 1,300 kW
- Temperature-control equipment - chillers, cooling towers, air conditioners and electric heaters
- Oil-free air compressors, both diesel and electric
- Refinery-grade heat exchangers
- Winterized packaging options ensuring seamless operations of equipment in harsh weather conditions
The new depot will also provide engineering support from Aggreko Process Services (APS): an experienced process engineering team within Aggreko that helps customers improve their processes and operations to enhance bottom-line performance and address environmental concerns. Unique to the rental industry, the APS team can design and install projects at extremely short notice – and while customers await capital expenditure approval or the delivery of equipment. In addition, Aggreko will leverage remote monitoring technology to manage power supply sources and proactively identify and resolve operational issues.
Aggreko’s new facility is open for business and located at 331 Chesley Drive, Saint John, NB.
