23 October 2014: Houston – Aggreko, a global leader in temporary power generation, temperature control and oil-free compressed air solutions,won the Environmental Stewardship Award at the second annual 2014 Eagle Ford Excellence Awards luncheon, presented by the South Texas Energy and Economic Roundtable (STEER) on Nov. 6 in San Antonio, Texas.
The Environmental Stewardship Award honors companies working in the Eagle Ford who make it their obligation to preserve the environment in a responsible manner. The award was bestowed on Aggreko for the company’s innovative ability to utilize field gas to power temporary natural gas generators, as opposed to diesel fuel. Aggreko’s solution addresses a variety of environmental concerns associated with diesel power generation, including: reduction of greenhouse gas and elimination of diesel fuel truck delivery, thereby lowering truck emissions and road damage; and eradication for the potential of fuel spills since diesel is no longer needed.
“We are honored to be recognized for our ability to provide power solutions that aid in reducing carbon emissions to the environment,” said Bruce Pool, Managing Director, Aggreko North America. “We take our role as an environmental steward very seriously and we are committed to innovating further eco-friendly solutions for the energy industry.”
Aggreko’s fleet is also EPA certified to non-road emission standards and all of the company’s service facilities, including the Three Rivers location supporting the Eagle Ford, maintain an ISO 14001 certification for environmental management. The ISO 14001 standard calls for businesses to employ processes which minimize how their operations negatively affect the environment and how to continually improve those processes to create a lasting impact on the environment.
“We believe in rewarding companies that exhibit high standards for corporate social responsibility. Aggreko has demonstrated its dedication in this area and is duly recognized by STEER and the Eagle Ford Excellence Awards for its commitment to protect and preserve the health of the environment,” said Omar Garcia, president of STEER.
Aggreko North America has over 60 locations throughout the U.S. and Canada with the capabilities to act as a single-source power manager for hundreds of exploration and production sites. From the oil sands of Canada to the Gulf region, Aggreko North America provides contingency planning, onshore and offshore temporary power, and generator rentals for primary power to job sites, as well as loadbank rentals and oil-free air compressor rentals.
