Aggreko Powers Major Cement Producer
RAS AL KHAIMAH, UAE, October 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
Aggreko, the world leader in power generation and temperature control services, has supplied power to Ras Al Khaimah (RAK) Co. for White Cement, one of the nation's leading producers of high quality white cement. The cement company called Aggreko when one of its gas turbines failed and standby power had been shut down for annual maintenance, causing a significant reduction in capacity. RAK Co. for White Cement produces a specially blended white cement dust that is in high demand and is supplied all over the GCC - around 450,000 tonnes of cement a year. The company awarded the contract to Aggreko due to its reputation as a highly agile and reliable provider. Within three days of receiving the call, power generators were up and running, providing the client with 6 MW at 6.6 kV for an initial two-week period - extended to three weeks when the client required additional time for the repair. Aggreko provided round-the-clock support - essential due to the critical nature of the power supply requirements. Highly trained engineers were tasked with running the generators 24/7 and in extreme conditions, as temperatures on site soared to over 50°C during the day. Chetan Elkunchwar, Technical Director, RAK Co. for White Cement, said: "We reached out to Aggreko without hesitation due to their reputation for providing power with speed and agility. We also needed a provider who could be flexible, due to the uncertain timing of the repairs. Aggreko proved to be a reliable and adaptable power provider, addressing our rather urgent needs seamlessly, and ensuring our business could continue without interruption." "We pride ourselves on being able to provide our clients with quality service anytime, anywhere," said Phil Burns, Managing Director, Aggreko Middle East. "Our technicians are used to the highly mobile nature of our work - one day it could be Ras Al Khaimah, another it could be Jeddah. What is important is the focus on getting the job done quickly, safely and efficiently. Our clients can count on our support as and when their needs change. This unique quality continues to build the great reputation Aggreko has earned over the years."
