Aggreko is providing 12 technicians and more than 40 generators totalling 17.6 MW of reliable power to energize the tournament’s on-pitch advertising boards displayed around the ground floor of each stadium field and the Field of Play lighting in Edmonton and Moncton.
Aggreko is also the main power source for the television broadcast in each host city where the matches are played, and to the main International Broadcast Centre (IBC) housed in Vancouver.
“Aggreko is pleased to be powering another World Cup event, especially after a successful power installation at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil,” said Gary Meador, Head of Aggreko Event Services North America. “We continue to hold our position as the leader in powering national and international high-profile events and are proud to support the seventh Women’s World Cup.”

This will be Aggreko’s third time supporting both the Pan Am & Parapan American Games and the broadcast center with its power systems and temperature control solutions.
