AGGREKO WIN AWARD FOR ENVIRONMENTAL ENDEAVOURS

Aggreko plc, the global leader in rental power, heating and cooling, has been recognised by Texas Oil & Gas Awards with the award for Excellence in Environmental Stewardship.This was as a result of their custom emissions control technology that helps to reduce NOx emissions on temporary, large-scale gas power plants.Innovation in the form of its new emissions control technology, surpassed emissions regulations and successfully reduced the NOx emissions up to 90% and Hydro-Carbon, CO and particulate emissions reduction up to 80% - a true first of its kind in the world of Temporary Rental Power Generation.“We are gratified to be recognised with this prestigious award for the work we did for a new cryogenic gas processing facility in the Permian Basin of West Texas,” said Charles Royce, Managing Director, North America.“The job called for us to not only meet state emissions regulations, but also Federal regulations, which meant we had to reduce NOx emissions by 75%. We are helping our customers in their transition to new realities of global energy markets. Globally, the energy sector is going through a major transition; the challenge today is to find the optimal way to secure more energy, affordably and sustainably.”The Award for Excellence in Environmental Stewardship recognises efforts, initiatives or technological developments that have minimised or eliminated their environmental footprint within the region.
