Rental Solutions

In Rental Solutions, we provide systems and equipment that our customers either operate themselves or contract us to operate as part of a full turn-key solution. Our multi-product offering to a diverse sector base includes power adjacencies such as heating, cooling, oil-free air and loadbanks,

Power Solutions

Industrial

Our Industrial business serves customers in sectors such as oil & gas, petrochemical & refining, and mining. We develop a solution to a complex problem and then rent our equipment for our customers to operate themselves.

Utility

Our Utility business acts as a power provider, installing and operating modular, mobile power plants. We charge for providing the generating capacity and the electricity we produce, but will typically pass the cost of fuel straight through to our customers, or they provide fuel themselves.

Our Customers

While our rental solutions customers operate in diverse sectors in over 100 countries around the world, they share some expectations.

Our customers in emerging markets and those who simply want to rent equipment value competitive pricing. Whereas as longer-term customers who require a full, advanced solution involving engineering input and advanced ancillaries, value expertise and customisation.

All customers value reliability and flexibility, while the most sophisticated demand high quality at the lowest total cost of energy. Aggreko’s skills in technology and our focus on enhancing fuel efficiency means we are well placed to meet customer needs.

Our largest markets today are North America, Australia, the UK and France. We can grow our customer base by market share accretion, sector penetration and bolt-on acquisitions.

We currently see opportunities for growth in some key markets within Oil & Gas, Petrochemical & Refining, Mining & Events. There are also opportunities for geographic growth in European markets where we are underweight.

Power Solutions Utility

Our sales team works with potential customers to demonstrate the value of our products and the bespoke solutions we can offer. Most Utility customers will generate a tender, which we and others then respond to. We meet with the customer, understand their needs and then present the best solution. The scale of our Utility projects mean these proposals are often detailed, including all logistics and civil works.

Refine & Select

If the customer requires we meet them on site to thoroughly assess what they need, then we draw up a proposal which they evaluate. Alternatively, the customer will simply order the product they want – by phone, at one of our locations or via our website.

Power Solutions Utility

We conduct a site survey and any other additional exploratory work needed, then design a technical solution and draw up a plan to meet the customer needs. A quote is provided on this basis. In a tender process, the bid often consists of a two-envelope system, opened in front of a bid committee. Given the size and scale of these works there may be further negotiations before the contract is signed.

Dispatch, Transport, Installation
Rental Solutions
Power Solutions Industrial

When the customer chooses our solution, we mobilise to their timescales, installing, testing and handing over the equipment or site to their deadline. It is normally a matter of hours or days to get the solution fully installed. The contracts in Rental Solutions last on average 48 days.

Equipment is shipped from the nearest service centre, hub or another project which has recently demobilised. It usually travels by sea, rail and road to the site. It can take from days to weeks or months to install, test and handover the solution.

Ongoing Support

Power Solutions Industrial

Most of our customers choose to run the equipment themselves, after our engineers have explained the operating procedures. Our service engineers are on hand for any additional support that is needed, and our remote monitoring system alerts us to any potential maintenance issues before they occur.

Power Solutions Utility

Unlike our other businesses, we typically operate our Power Solutions Utility facilities, which are run by Aggreko employees, and sell the power that we generate to the customer. Our on-site teams are a mixture of experienced Aggreko veterans who rotate between countries, and local people who we train to operate our equipment.

End of Project

When the customer has finished with the equipment they let our team know and we arrange to pick up the equipment at a convenient time.

When the contract reaches its end, our customers have the option to extend. On average 30% of our customers in any one year will decide to off-hire their contract. If a customer does off-hire we will remove our equipment and remediate the site to leave it as we found it.

Preparing for the Next Customer

We take the equipment back to our service centres, where we service it to make sure it’s ready for the next customer.

Equipment that comes off-hire goes back to a service centre or hub where it’s serviced or upgraded. At the end of their useful life our 1MW diesel engines can be upgraded, improving fuel efficiency at a lower capital cost than a new engine.
