April 5, 2013: HOUSTON – Aggreko, the world leader in rental power, and temperature control solutions, for the seventh consecutive year will provide large-scale power generation for local festivities surrounding the NCAA Men’s Final Four. The long-awaited 2013 NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Championship national semifinals and national championship will take place on April 6 and 8 at the Georgia Dome as thousands celebrate in the Atlanta area.
As the world leader in temporary utility solutions, Aggreko was specifically chosen to power the
celebration festivities of the NCAA Men’s Final Four games due to their successful track record
with the NCAA as well as the rental company’s involvement in other major events, such as the
2013 Presidential Inauguration, the London 2012 Olympic Summer Games, and the Vancouver
2010 Olympic Winter Games.
Aggreko will provide enough electricity to surrounding events to power more than 80 average-size
homes. This includes The Big Dance, a three-day pep rally and music festival featuring high-
profile artists held at Centennial Olympic Park, a large outdoor park in downtown Atlanta. To
create an enjoyable space for the fans, the Aggreko team designed power setup and cable
distribution to be safely contained and away from public areas. The company’s highly trained
technicians will install the equipment and approximately 8,000 feet of cable, as well as provide
24/7 monitoring services for power distribution operations at the event.
“It is an honor to work with the NCAA for the seventh year to provide large-scale rental power
solutions for the Final Four festivities,” said Gary Meador, Head of National Event Services,
Aggreko North America. “Each project is unique, and Aggreko’s event specialists have put
together a great game plan utilizing their expert project design skills, our nationwide network of
power generation resources and on-site technical support to create a successful event.”
The entire project will take Aggreko approximately two weeks, from preparation and installation in
the downtown Atlanta area to dismantling the equipment upon completion.
