  • 12 MW power package for general construction and production facilities at Chad/Cameroon Development Project.
  • Quality Award presented to Aggreko in recognition of commitment and dedication shown throughout the 2 year contract.
  • Revenue Management program with World Bank allocates oil revenue to priority social sectors in the Chad community.

Aggreko plc global leader in providing temporary power and temperature control services today announced it has received the ESSOChad Construction Quarterly Award for Quality and Excellence, in West Africa.

In July 2001, Aggreko was awarded a long term contract by Kellogg Brown and Root (KBR) to supply a 12 MW / 6.6kV power package for general construction and production facilities at the ESSOChad oilfield development project in Kome, Chad, West Africa.

In recognition for the outstanding commitment and dedication shown by the Aggreko team over the last two and a half years, the Quality Excellence Award commends the expertise displayed by Aggreko staff when working in difficult conditions, the 24 hour a day on-site availability of personnel and equipment, and the ability to mobilise additional equipment in short time scales.

Colin Gaston, Aggreko Area Director for West Africa said “With extensive environmental management plans developed during the project and a revenue management program between the World Bank and Chad which allocates a percentage of oil revenue to priority social sectors, Aggreko is proud to be associated with a project that benefits the local community. The remote location, torrential rains and flooding of sites presented many challenges over the past 2 years. We are delighted to receive this award and appreciate the recognition given by ESSOChad for the team work and support shown by the Aggreko team throughout the project duration.”
Jeffrey T Leech, Senior Engineer Technical Services, KBR said, “Aggreko were our main supplier for temporary power throughout the project. With the location being remote, reliability and technical capability 24 hours a day was our top priority. We were very impressed by the high standards displayed by the Aggreko Service Engineers in such difficult conditions. Aggreko demonstrated their commitment to the project when requested to supply additional equipment on short notice without hesitation.”

The Chad/Cameroon Development Project is developing oilfields in southern Chad, a landlocked country in West Africa, and building a 1,070 kilometer (663 miles) underground pipeline to a marine terminal off the coast of Cameroon. The pipeline is needed to export Chad's oil to world markets.
