The company will be investing a significant proportion of this for growing it's European BESS fleet. The introduction of this larger European fleet of small, mid- and large-size BESS forms part of Aggreko's Greener Upgrades initiative, which is aimed at supporting customers move to greener solutions. 

By bringing these new, greener technologies to the market, Aggreko is reinforcing its commitment to playing a key role in the energy transition, a key part of it's new global sustainability framework, Energizing Change™.

Through carrying out field-based trials with customers, Aggreko is helping companies become early adopters of new technologies like batteries supporting the move towards the use of cleaner and greener energy solutions.

Whether using a battery solution in a hybrid set-up or on their own, the enhanced BESS fleet will help in reducing emissions, lower NOx as well as fuel consumption across a wide range of applications. In addition, introducing BESS solutions can help to solve capacity constraints and provide off-grid power resilience as part of a decentralized energy solution particularly for high energy users.

Rodrigo Salim, Head of Product Line – Battery & Energy Storage at Aggreko said, "Many industries are making their transition to renewable power, and within that must balance intermittency and the skills gap. By consulting closely with customers and providing greener solutions like BESS in a rental capacity, we can help unlock opportunities for our customers so they can scale up their own decarbonization efforts."
