Temporary Utility Rentals Help Relaunch the USS
The Challenge to the Customer
After serving ten years at sea, the USS Augusta was in
need of extensive refurbishing – and the navy turned to Electric
Boat, a world-class supplier of nuclear submarines, for the
restoration. Electric Boat needed large-scale and reliable
temporary utilities to complete the project.
To assure success for the five-month
restoration, Electric Boat chose Aggreko to provide dependable
equipment and regular fuel deliveries.
The USS Augusta project required 4
generator rentals with fuel drops, a
chiller rental, 2 electric
air compressor rentals, and
rental heaters. Aggreko also provided about
600,000 gallons of fuel to the USS Augusta
The Benefit to the Customer
Aggreko’s operational performance on
this project enabled Electric Boat to complete the project with
zero downtime and as a result, return the submarine back to the
Navy early and under budget. .
