August 2013, Buenos Aires, Argentina - Aggreko, the world leader in the provision of temporary power and temperature control services, provided emergency power to the pumping plant that supplies oil to YPF’s distillery, located in Berisso, La Plata, Argentina. Within nine hours of the initial call requesting emergency power solutions after the plant suffered a system failure, Aggreko had deployed, installed and commissioned its power equipment.
Aggreko provided a 1,500 kVA generator, a 20,000 liters fuel tank, a transformer and medium voltage cables, set to run 24/7. The customer was able to assume operation of the plant ahead of schedule due to the speed of delivery and efficient installation process, managed within the highest standards of Health and Safety.
Commenting on the project, José Schiavi, General Manager, Aggreko Argentina, said: "YPF,one of the most important energy companies in Argentina, hired Aggreko knowing that we could meet their requirements successfully. Once again, Aggreko’s speedy response prevented YPF from losing production flow and allowed them to continue their work safely and without further interruption."
