Temporary power company Aggreko hopes that its first base in East Africa will act as “a springboard” for the company in the region.
The service centre in Nairobi – Aggreko’s sixth in its southern and east African network – was formally inaugurated by Kenya’s energy minister Kiraitu Murungi and Aggreko chief executive Rupert Soames.
Situated within the grounds of Nairobi’s Jomo Kenyatta International Airport, the facility is strategically located to support industrial users in and around Nairobi as well as shipping, mining, manufacturing and agricultural businesses operating throughout the country.
Soames said: “Aggreko is highly committed to expanding our presence across Africa. The success of our operations in Kenya will act as a springboard for our continued growth throughout East Africa.”
