In addition to providing more industrial rentals for their customers, Aggreko will provide remote monitoring capabilities, and improve their ability to troubleshoot operational issues, for increased efficiency in the field. They'll provide an experienced process engineering team, for better performance, for their customers.

Dennis Haller, vice president of Aggreko Canada, said, “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. 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. We’re proud to expand our service center to meet their growing temporary equipment needs.”

Sue McGregor, Canada sales manager of Aggreko North America, said, “We see great value in being part of the Fort McMurray community and employing local people. 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 downtime.”
