2 September 2013, Iraq: Aggreko, the world leader in the provision of temporary power and temperature control services has recently installed a 6 MW turn-key power solution to supply power to Iraq Energy City (IEC), the country’s newest and most advanced oil field community. Located in the Southern Iraq oil and gas fields and owned and operated by the Petronor Group, IEC is a mixed use community with over 1,000 local and expatriate residents living and working within its boundaries. IEC also houses the local headquarters of major EPC contractors and international oil companies.
Aggreko was awarded the contract to provide a centralised power solution for IEC to meet its growing demand for a stable and consistent electricity supply. The Aggreko plant provides power for IEC’s Phase One, a 200,000 square meter site consisting of accommodation, offices, workshops, warehouses and recreational facilities.
"We chose Aggreko as we were confident they could provide stable and consistent power in the high desert temperatures of Southern Iraq. Aggreko is known for its expertise and experience in delivering solutions in harsh weather conditions, as well as for their commitment to quality. We wanted to provide our growing number of residents with access to power from a safe, quiet and clean power facility. Aggreko helps us deliver our promise of providing the very best to our tenants," said Andres La Saga, Business Development Manager, Petronor Group.
"We are pleased to be working with the Petronor Group on this important project, playing a key role in providing vital support to the people living and working within Iraq Energy City. This venture demonstrates the commitment of both Petronor and Aggreko to provide excellent services in challenging conditions", added Patrick Boerman, Area General Manager Iraq and Major Projects, Aggreko Middle East.
