Aggreko Brings High-performance Engine to Market
The Challenge to the Customer
During the construction phase of a new high-performance
auto development facility, the local utility was unable to provide
enough power to test high-power racing engines on dynamometers. The
electrical contractor tasked with the project contacted Aggreko for
Aggreko supplied the electricity needed to
operate the dynamometers, utilizing 2
generator rentals running in parallel.
Aggreko’s team of experts also worked with the electrical
contractor to design an innovative solution to absorb the energy
produced by the engines running on the dynamometers.
The solution involved Aggreko supplying
load bank rentals that absorbed the
engine’s energy, transforming it into heat, and releasing it into
the atmosphere. It also used
chiller rentals to cool dynamometer components
cooling tower rentals to cool the engines
instead of engine radiators.
The Benefit to the Customer
When the project concluded, the
contractor’s client was so pleased with the load bank solution that
they acquired and incorporated it into their standard testing
