Headquartered in Glasgow, Scotland, Aggreko provides power generation and temperature control solutions to customers who need them either very quickly or for a short length of time.
Minimising down time
The down times during unplanned maintenance or even planned equipment replacements can have great economic impact on any production process. Aggreko offers tailor-made temporary heating/cooling solutions for process industry to achieve uninterrupted production.

Partnering with Kapp
In the space of two weeks, Aggreko commissioned a temporary low-temperature condensing system using Shell & Plate heat exchangers, low-temperature chillers and a control system to maintain a safe and reliable condensation system.
The heat-transfer engineering was realised in partnership with Kapp, official representative of Vahterus. For projects with space constraints and/or demanding process conditions, APS-Europe can take advantage of Vahterus PSHEs when implementing heating/cooling solutions.

Together, they found great potential for energy saving. For years, DONG and Junckers, to...
