The challenge to the customer
When Hurricane Georges hit the eastern U.S. coast in 1998, a produce supplier with 500 tons (453 m.t.) of perishables docked in the bay found themselves in a dire predicament.
A contingency plan went into action immediately, calling on Aggreko to power the containers using fifteen Cargo Power units while they were moved to a facility 10 miles (16 km) inland to weather the storm.
The benefits to the customer
Through Aggreko's rapid response that allowed the refrigerated containers to maintain the proper temperature during the move, and throughout the duration of the hurricane, the fresh produce was preserved until delivery was possible.
