Aggreko wins Olympics deal

AGGREKO, the Scottish power specialist, has sealed a £37m deal to supply electricity to the London 2012 Olympic Games.

The Glasgow-based company will provide about 220 megawatts of power – some 60 megawatts more than it supplied at the Beijing games in 2008.

Aggreko has also provided power for the football World Cup in South Africa and the Vancouver Winter Olympics.

The company, which has 5,000 employees, said it had also been signed up as a sponsor for the London games after winning the deal.
