Aggreko, the global leader in temporary power and temperature control solutions, is providing power to the new Slick Systems Stand at Worcester Warriors RFC, until the club’s permanent power supply is in place.
Part of a £9M re-development project, the new stand at the Warriors’ 12,000 capacity Sixways Stadium includes a three-storey corner block which houses corporate hospitality suites, administrative offices and shops as well as a new catering kitchen, but the existing power supply was inadequate to meet the needs of the new facilities. Aggreko has supplied and installed two generators; a 500kVA which operates 24/7 and a 125kVA, which is used only on match days to provide additional power.
Shaun Roberts, Sixways Complex Manager at Worcester Warriors, explains: “Now the construction of the Slick Systems Stand has been completed, it was important for us to get everything up and running as soon as possible, which is now placing pressure on the electricity supply to the club.
“A new permanent power supply is scheduled to be connected early in 2009, but in the meantime, we’re delighted with the standard and performance of the generators which means we’ve been able to use our new facilities now. We are extremely pleased with the level of service we’ve received from Aggreko.”
Lee Knapper, sales engineer for Aggreko, said: “Our team has vast experience in handling such projects, which meant we were able to get the equipment in place and operational very quickly.
“With big crowds expected for key games such as the European Challenge Cup clash with French club Bourgoin, it was important for Worcester Warriors to have the Slick Systems Stand ready for use.”
