Temporary on-site power is a fast-growing trend. According to a recent sector report from analysis firm MarketsandMarkets, the global power rental market is set to grow from US$7.8 billion in 2012 to $17 billion in 2017.

Major users of temporary on-site power are utility companies, oil and gas companies, manufacturing firms, the shipping industry, events organisers and construction and mining companies, the report said.

Aggreko has previously supplied UPS power to the Olympic Games in London, UK and Vancouver, Canada.
