HOUSTON — Aggreko, global leader in rental power, temperature control and oil-free compressed air solutions, continued its expansion in Western Canada with the opening of a larger service center in Fort McMurray, Alberta. Aggreko established itself in Fort McMurray in 2009, and is now doubling the size of its local operations. The new 7,000-square-foot facility, with an expanded fleet of rental generators, has a growing staff of technicians, sales and service personnel.
“Aggreko has served the oil sands industry in western Canada for more than 10 years and we are excited to root ourselves deeper in the Fort McMurray community,” said Dennis Haller, vice president of Aggreko Canada. “Our oil and gas, refining and upgrading and construction customers need partners with a local presence and the capability to provide superior, highly responsive service.”
Aggreko will supply: Power generators from 30 kW to 1,500 kW; new natural gas generators, 65 kW and 1,300 kW; temperature-control equipment including chillers, cooling towers, air conditioners and electric heaters; oil-free air compressors, both diesel and electric; and refinery-grade heat exchangers.
Aggreko will also provide customers with remote monitoring capabilities to improve their ability to troubleshoot any operational issue and optimize operating efficiency. The branch will also provide engineering support from Aggreko Process Services; an experienced process engineering team within Aggreko that helps customers improve their processes and addresses environmental concerns.
“We see great value in being part of the Fort McMurray community and employing local people,” said Sue McGregor, Canada sales manager, Aggreko North America. “The increased demand for our services is led by the development in the oil sands, and we continue to explore ways to assist with more local expertise, new technology for remote construction sites, and innovative solutions to reduce emissions and maintenance downtown.”
Aggreko also operates service centers in Edmonton, Fort St. John, Toronto, Montreal, Ottawa and Sarnia, Ontario.
