Aggreko, the world leader in the provision of temporary power and temperature control services, announced a global partnership with Cirque du Soleil in which Aggreko will supply temporary power and temperature control systems to Cirque du Soleil’s big top touring productions for the next four years.

Aggreko, which has a local presence in more than 100 countries, will provide an uninterruptable power supply to Cirque du Soleil’s five big top shows across the United States, Canada, Latin America, Europe and Asia-Pacific.

To ensure the safety of the performers and to maximize audience comfort, a constant temperature must be maintained within the big top whether the performance is in a summer or winter climate. Aggreko will employ a highly sophisticated, integrated heating and cooling system to ensure targeted temperatures are maintained.

“Cirque du Soleil is very pleased to be partnering with the industry leader, Aggreko, as a global sponsor of our shows over the next four years,” said Louis Malafarina, Cirque du Soleil corporate alliances director. “This is a fantastic alliance for us. Aggreko will provide a complete solution for uninterruptable power along with an innovative and energy-efficient temperature-control solution that meets the unique needs of our Big Top Touring shows. Aggreko will provide an integral part of our infrastructure, ensuring that our shows are performed to audiences all over the world.”

“We are delighted to be partnering with such an iconic global entertainment brand as Cirque du Soleil,” said Rupert Soames, CEO of Aggreko. “Our extensive experience in supporting major intentional events along with our global footprint, make Aggreko an excellent match for Cirque du Soleil’s power and temperature control requirements.”

Aggreko, based in Scotland with U.S. headquarters in Houston, is No. 5 on the RER 100.
