PRESS RELEASE

January, 2013

Aggreko Announces New Managing Director for Australia-Pacific

Auckland, New Zealand - Aggreko, the global leader in the supply of temporary power and temperature control, has appointed George Whyte to be Managing Director, Aggreko Australia-Pacific, taking charge of the company's Australian, New Zealand and Pacific Islands operations. The announcement follows the appointment of Asterios Satrazemis, the region's former Managing Director, to the position of Regional Director, Aggreko Americas, responsible for the company’s operations in North, Central and South America.

George, originally from Scotland, has worked with Aggreko in Australia for 13 years in a range of capacities, from sales consultant through to his most recent posting as Area General Manager for Aggreko Australia’s “South” region, running the business in New South Wales, Victoria and South Australia.

“I’m excited to be leading Aggreko’s business in Australia and the Pacific as these markets further mature and as we navigate the changing landscape of the respective local economies,” said George. “Customers in our core markets are looking closely at how they can minimise cost while maximising value. We have to be more conscious than ever of delivering value and delighting our customers through providing unparalleled levels of quality and service.”

George will lead the continued geographical expansion of Aggreko throughout the region along with the on-going development of Aggreko’s power and temperature control offerings to key customer segments in mining, oil and gas, utilities, major events and industrial construction.

Editor’s Notes
Aggreko plc is the world leader in the supply of temporary power and temperature control solutions. Aggreko employs over 4,500 people operating from 165 locations. In 2011 we served customers in about 100 countries, and had revenues of approximately GBP 1.4bn (USD 2.2bn or Euros 1.6bn). Aggreko plc is listed on the London Stock Exchange (AGK.L), is a member of the FTSE 100 index, and is headquartered in Scotland. For more information, please visit the company website at www.aggreko.com.
Aggreko provides power and temperature control solutions to customers who need them either very quickly, or for a short or indeterminate length of time. Examples would be the supply of power to an industrial site which needs to service its permanent power supply, supplying a whole city in times of power shortage, or providing a major sporting event with power and cooling systems. We serve our customers either through our 165 service centres, which we call the Local business, or globally through our International Power Projects business.
In the Local business, which accounts for about half of our revenues, we hire our equipment to customers, who then operate it for themselves, although we retain responsibility for servicing and maintaining it. In the International Power Projects business, which also accounts for about half of our revenues, we operate as a power producer. We install and operate power plants and we charge our customers both for providing the generating capacity, and for the electricity we produce. We design and manufacture equipment specifically for these requirements in our factory in Dumbarton, Scotland.
Recent customers include the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games and the power utilities in over 50 countries including the UK, France, Angola, Kenya, Indonesia, Bangladesh, Venezuela, Chile, Brazil and the USA.
In 2011 we fulfilled almost 43,000 customers’ assignments and when researched, 69% of them gave us a recommendation of 9 or 10 out of 10.
