For the 21st year, Aggreko will power the Super Bowl in Dallas with large-scale power generation and heating for the event including lighting and video for the Black-Eyed Peas half-time show. Aggreko will also provide power and temperature control for the international media compounds broadcasting the event to a worldwide television, internet and radio audience.
“This is Aggreko’s 21st year supporting the big game and its many festivities, and each event brings a unique experience,” said Gordy Broussard, vice president, national sales and marketing, Aggreko North America. “As they say, everything is bigger in Texas and the sheer size of the new stadium makes this one of Aggreko’s largest supply of uninterrupted power and heating for a single event.”
Including practice facilities, celebration sites and VIP areas, services include 13 megawatts of generator power, enough for about 3,000 medium-sized homes; 4,600 kW of heating, and about 50 miles of cable distributed in and around the stadium.
Aggreko, No. 9 on the RER 100, is based in Scotland, with U.S. headquarters in Houston.
