Bazpur, India - 12 January 2011: Aggreko, the global leader in the supply of temporary power and temperature control services, has commissioned a 7 MW power package for Polyplex Corporation Ltd. to ensure continued production of their manufacturing plant located at Bazpur, Uttrakhand in the north of India.
Polyplex Corporation Ltd., the world’s 4th largest polyester film manufacturing company, was informed that it would take several months to connect its facility to the local utility grid. Without sufficient power supplies, Polyplex was facing a delay in production which could have significantly affected its profitability.
After examining the options available, Polyplex opted to contract Aggreko to provide a turn-key power rental solution until the facility could be connected to a permanent power source. Aggreko provided a 7 MW diesel-fueled power package, complete with all ancillaries, which was installed within just three weeks of contract signature. As a turn-key power provider, Aggreko has remained responsible for the operation of the project, with technicians available on-site 24 hours a day to ensure a fault-less power supply.
Commenting on the project, Abid Ahmed, Country Manager, India, said: “This project demonstrates our ability to provide manufacturers with a cost-effective alternative to purchasing power generation equipment to relieve temporary power problems. I am confident more manufacturers in India will see the possibilities offered by a turn-key rental power provider like Aggreko.”
On the decision to award the power contract to Aggreko, Mr R.P. Yadav, Head - Projects, Polyplex Corporation Ltd. said, “We had worked with Aggreko in the past when one of our manufacturing facilities in Turkey required power services. We were extremely satisfied with Aggreko’s delivery and execution of the project and are proud to extend our association with the company for a second time.”
