Throughout the world, Aggreko has earned a reputation for delivering reliable power solutions in very short time scales. Aggreko’s multi-megawatt power packages support local and national grids in times of need including hydro-electricity shortage, peak lopping during periods of excess power demand, or failure of existing power plants. Rental power is utilised by utility companies because to avoid rolling black-outs and power shortages, which can damage the economy of a country.
Debajit Das, Managing Director, Aggreko Asia said: “Rental power is an excellent solution for utilities and is utilised in Indonesia to reduce power shortages and help stabilize the local power supply. Aggreko is committed to continue to cooperate with PT. PLN in addressing the problem of power shortages.”
In the case of Indonesia, Aggreko’s distributed generation solutions are particularly useful given the transmission and distribution problems faced by the archipelago country. Aggreko’s interim power plants can be installed directly at the point of use, reducing the issues caused by large distribution lines. These interim power solutions make it possible to supply power to remote areas which are not connected to the central grid.
In addition, Aggreko is also able to supply electricity during the construction and commissioning phases of new permanent power projects, as well as providing loadbanks for testing generators and power output.
According Debajit Das, Aggreko does not just rent generators; they provide a comprehensive rental power solution from beginning to end. Services provided by Aggreko include assessment of need, site visits, design, mobilization, installation, commissioning and operation of the power packages.
“Recognizing that the demand for electricity at each location is unique, Aggreko is committed to providing solutions that fit customers’ specific needs. With full control over the world’s largest fleet of rental generators, we are capable of mobilizing multi-megawatt power packages in a matter of weeks,” said Mr. Das.“Standardization of the overall design of the equipment container size to a 20 foot ISO-standard, not only provides the option of handling and transportation by land, sea and air, but also allows us to rapidly install these power packages.”
Aggreko has the flexibility to provide power in any capacity, from the installation of one generator to the installation of a multi-megawatt power plant. Aggreko power plants can operate in parallel with the grid network or in a separate network mode (island mode) at low or high voltage with a frequency of 50Hz or 60Hz.
All Aggreko equipment is thoroughly tested prior to installation, which ensures that customers receive the most productive and reliable equipment. Operational teams provide service 24 hours a day through specially trained service engineers who ensure that equipment is always in peak condition, giving the customer peace of mind in knowing that their power supply is reliable.
Moreover, Aggreko’s experience in working with utility grids means that the company is experience in connecting to and aligning with local power grids without any disruption to the network flow.
“This is a very useful feature, especially when carrying out maintenance work or upgrading transmission systems, transformers, and distribution systems,” explained Mr. Das. “The benefit of using Aggreko power rental services means that the customers are free from the cost and administration associated with the ownership of power plants. Customers simply pay for the power they need, leaving the details of generating that power up to Aggreko.”
