“Aggreko is very happy with the MTU technology. Being Tier 4 compliant has greatly helped increase our presence with customers that have a need for this technology,” said Arce-Larreta. “Our compressors offer unmatched reliability and performance, which is a key differentiator for us.”
In side-by-side trials of its MTU-powered units, Aggreko found that its OFA compressor saved 10 percent in fuel cost over competing products. For end-users who run air compressors 24 hours a day, seven days a week, this provides significant cost savings.
Poised for growth
The use of the MTU 6R 1500 engine allows Aggreko to offer its customers an industry-leading solution that provides the performance, reliability and emissions requirements they demand, saving them money and ensuring invaluable uptime. Stewart & Stevenson, an MTU authorized distributor, supports Aggreko with quality spare parts and local service, proving a complete package for customers.
“Aggreko is an exciting customer for MTU,” said Jorge Kusaka, senior sales manager, construction, industrial & agriculture engines, MTU America. “From power output to footprint, MTU engines are well-matched to an air compressor application. We look forward to growing in this space with our new partner.”
Aggreko has a built a strong OFA compressor rental fleet to support refineries, manufacturing facilities (e.g., paper mills, electronics, food and beverage, etc.) and other industries that require oil-free air for their operation.
