Temporary power supplier Aggreko, announced today the opening of a new service centre in Carlsbad, New Mexico to meet the growing demand for temporary utility services in the oil and gas, mining, utility, petrochemical and refining industries. Backed by a nationwide network of service centres, the facility maintains the full complement of Aggreko’s equipment, services and support. The centre sits on a two acre lot to allow for a wide-array of inventory to meet both long-term and emergency requirements.

“The growth of activity in the Permian Basin has prompted a need for more readily available and accessible power sources, not only to support oil and gas production, but also to support utilities where the added strain on the grid puts local communities at risk for unexpected outages,” said John Morgan, Vice President, West Area General Manager, Aggreko North America. “With this new facility, we are better positioned to service our clients with faster turnarounds and maintain our commitment to providing reliable, cost-effective and scalable power solutions.”

The ripple effect from the boom in shale activity has also prompted a higher demand for more cost-effective natural gas-powered generators to address flaring concerns and reduce emissions. With Aggreko’s fleet of natural gas generators and gas cleaning applications, operators in the Permian Basin will be able to leverage on-site alternative fuels to power operations, reducing their environmental impact and maximizing revenue. Customers will also benefit from Aggreko’s Remote Monitoring (ARM) service, which transmits real-time data from equipment, allowing Aggreko to anticipate, diagnose and solve problems faster and with greater accuracy — and proactively head off potential issues.

Customers can also expect to take advantage of Aggreko’s specialized service teams. Aggreko Process Services (APS) is an experienced process engineering team that helps customers improve their processes and operations to enhance bottom-line performance and address environmental concerns. Aggreko Cooling Tower Services (ACTS) focuses on improving cooling water performance and reliability through temporary cooling tower installations. Unique to the rental industry, APS and ACTS can design, install and provide technical support and maintenance at extremely short notice.
