Aggreko, the global leader in temporary power and temperature
control solutions, provided a temporary heating and dehumidification
package to main contractors FCC Elliott Construction to assist in the
construction programme of the new 312 bed South West Acute Hospital at
Enniskillen in Northern Ireland.
Aggreko initially supplied six 125 kW IDF heaters and 12 1600 KT dehumidifier
packages to dry and heat the clinical and ward blocks of the new hospital - to 6C -
to enable painting of the interiors. Moisture and temperature control equipment was
also supplied in basement corridors to protect electrical equipment and busbars from
The temporary dehumidifiers were deployed on site in sequence to remove excess
moisture from each block of the hospital. Flexible ducting took hot air from the
temporary heaters to each floor, and polyducting was suspended from corridor
ceilings to distribute air throughout each floor area.
Howard Sharp, Construction Director at FCC Elliott Construction, said: “Aggreko provided an effective temporary moisture and temperature
control solution which is assisting us to continue to deliver this high quality
healthcare facility on time and on budget. Their technical expertise and
professional, high standard of service throughout the project has been invaluable on
such a large, high profile scheme.”
Martin Byrne, sales manager at Aggreko, said: “It is vital that construction
programmes run according to schedule, particularly on major developments, as delays
can have a huge impact on project costs. Our temporary dehumidification and
temperature control equipment, which is available for hire ensures the correct conditions for electrical installations and internal finishes
such as paint and floor coverings, assisting contractors to deliver projects to meet
their clients' requirements.”
Aggreko plc is the world leader in the supply of temporary power and temperature
control solutions. Aggreko employs over 3,800 people operating from 148 locations.
In 2010 we served customers in about 100 countries, and had revenues of
approximately GBP 1.2bn. Aggreko plc is listed on the London Stock Exchange (AGK.L),
is a member of the FTSE-100 index, and is headquartered in Scotland. For more

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 148 service centres, which we call the Local Business, or globally
through our International 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 International 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 2008 Beijing Olympic Games, the Vancouver 2010 Olympic
Winter Games and the power utilities in over 50 countries including the UK, France,
Angola, Kenya, Indonesia, Bangladesh, Venezuela, Chile, Brazil and the USA.
In 2010 we fulfilled almost 40,000 customers’ assignments and when researched, 68%
of them gave us a recommendation of 9 or 10 out of 10.
