Aggreko has been announced as Official Temporary Power Supporter for the Glasgow 2018 European Championships. Aggreko, global leader in mobile, modular power, heating and cooling, will provide temporary and continuous reliable power for the Championships’ competition and non-competition venues in August.

Aggreko will provide about 60 generators supply more than 10 Mega Volt Amp of energy, distributed through more than 240 panels and 26 kilometers of cable to power the delivery of 84 sessions of sports, including Open Water Swimming at Loch Lomond and Mountain Biking at Cathkin Braes.

Aggreko will also help to power Festival 2018, a cultural program showcasing music, visual arts, street art, dance, theater, and digital art across the city, with Glasgow’s iconic George Square at its heart.

“We’re proud to support the first staging of the prestigious Glasgow 2018 European Championships,” said Robert Wells, managing director, Aggreko Major Events Services. “We look forward to working with the team and Glasgow city to ensure the faultless delivery of power to the Championships. There is no better place to do this than in Scotland.”

Glasgow 2018 will bring together some of Europe’s leading sports, including the existing European Championships for Aquatics, Cycling, Gymnastics, Rowing and Triathlon, with a new Golf Team Championships between Aug. 2 and 12.

Aggreko and its services will be used alongside existing venues to meet all the Championships’ power requirements during the 11-day event.

“The latest addition to the Glasgow 2018 sponsor family, Aggreko has helped deliver excellent multi-sport events around the world,” said Councillor Susan Aitken, leader of Glasgow City Council. “Working with a well-known brand with its roots in Scotland will help guarantee the success of the inaugural European Championships.”

In 2018, Aggreko is also supporting the PyeongChang Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games and the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games.
