Aggreko plc, the global leader in providing rental power and temperature control solutions, has expanded its network agreement with Orange Business Services to provide increased agility and network availability for its fast-moving business. The upgraded network connects staff across locations in Europe, the Americas, Asia and Africa.

Aggreko provides temporary power and cooling services to a wide array of industries and to many of the world’s most high profile sporting and cultural events. With a globally mobile workforce and project assets constantly on the move, the company sought an agile solution to rapidly enable its field teams to get online seamlessly. This enables them to support thousands of customers– wherever they are located across the globe.

Aggreko has been an Orange customer for 13 years, and the newly-extended six-year partnership upgrades its Business Virtual Private Network (BVPN) to deliver improved network availability and access for employees. BVPN supports voice, data, video and all critical business applications for Aggreko.

As part of the partnership, Orange is working together with Aggreko to continually improve its helpdesk, service and project management functions. This includes new governance models to assist with operational escalations and establishing a new board to discuss technological innovations, thereby helping Aggreko to continue its digital transformation journey.

Orange Business Services was also able to offer an innovative commercial incentive, by helping Aggreko reduce initial operational expenditure and generate immediate first-year cost savings through a flexible payment model and rewards offer.

“We are proud of our long-term relationship with Aggreko and sought to continue to develop the right solutions to meet their evolving business needs. Given the dynamic nature of their business, we are confident that this renewed partnership will help Aggreko to continue to evolve the way they work and nimbly operate across its vast customer portfolio,” said Rob Willcock, Managing Director and Head of UK and Ireland at Orange Business Services.

“We sought additional support to improve and expand our network and communications coverage to enable our continued business growth globally. Orange Business Services solution provides us with added efficiencies in planning and pricing to better operate in the future and with their support, we believe we are on the right track towards this,” said Fraser Dorward, Enterprise Infrastructure Architect at Aggreko.
