Aggreko supplied temporary power to all London 2012 venues


– including the Basketball Arena – during the London Prepares series


London solution This invaluable background knowledge has allowed us to provide temporary energy services of an unprecedented scale and complexity to London 2012.

Aggreko is also providing vital back-up power to the additional stadia and Olym- pic sites across the UK. The company is also responsible for


providing temporary power for the ‘overlay’ (additional infrastructure capac- ity), which includes hospitality, security, ticketing, catering and the International Broadcast Centre – which includes pow- ering computer equipment and TV feeds for journalists.


Beyond 2012 The core Aggreko team for London 2012 will be supported by up to 200 engineers,


electricians and other staff, all of whom will enhance and develop their skills by working on the event. Our continuing commitment to in-


novation will ensure an unforgettable sporting event. But for us, the five weeks’ of Olympic and Paralympic spectacle are by no means the end. The engineering expertise and new equipment we use in delivering these Games will also benefit future events we are bidding to work on, including the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympic Games, the 2014 Hockey World Cup, the 2014 Commonwealth Games and the 2015 Rugby World Cup. l
