Dubai, November 2009 - Aggreko, the world leader in the provision of temporary power and temperature control services, will once again be powering the  Emirates Airline Dubai Rugby Sevens tournament, from 3rd - 5th December. This major international sporting event is now in its 40th year and this is the tenth year in a row that Aggreko has supplied it with temporary power. This year Aggreko will also be providing a cooling package.

Crowds of 40,000 a day are expected at the event, a hugely successful annual showcase for the sport, with millions more tuning in across the world to watch the games. Aggreko will be providing power for essential functions such as the big screen, facilities for broadcasters, security and lighting, from the Rugby Village and the international broadcast centre to the VIP hospitality area -  where Aggreko is also providing cooling.

Aggreko’s involvement in the tournament is not restricted to power and temperature control: the company will once again be sponsoring the Aggreko Dynamos, the Australian cheerleading squad that is always a popular and energising presence at the tournament. Aggreko will also sponsor the local referees, as well as the CNCF Veterans Team, who will be defending their title as winners of the International Veterans tournament for the second consecutive year.

Phil Burns, Managing Director, Aggreko Middle East, said: “The Dubai Rugby Sevens is unique amongst international rugby events and we take a great deal of pride in being able to support the tremendous achievements of the tournament. The Aggreko team is made up of some very enthusiastic rugby followers, and we’re all excited to hear that the sport has also been introduced to the Olympics in 2016.”

Aggreko is the leader in power rental for the events industry and has provided turn-key power packages for the Olympic Games in Beijing, Atlanta, Salt Lake City, Sydney and Turin, as well as other major sporting events such as the Football, Rugby and Cricket World Cups, and many golf championships.
