When the Denver Broncos and Carolina Panthers went head to head in the gridiron showdown for the ages on Sunday 7th February, the Aggreko team in America was behind the scenes generating power for the stadium, the Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California. 

Aggreko provided large-scale power generation and HVAC assistance for the golden anniversary of America's largest national football championship game which took place at the Levi's Stadium.

Aggreko equipment provided heating and cooling, and generated power for the entire 68,500-seat Gold LEED-certified stadium, which has the ability to expand to seat an additional 6,500 observers. We also powered several marquee events and provided support services including: seven-time Grammy Award-winning band Coldplay's halftime show, the broadcast and international media compounds, Super Bowl City, the Friday Night Party at Treasure Island and the NFL Honours Red Carpet. It was the 26th time Aggreko has been involved in the American football final.     

David Prince, senior events project manager at Aggreko Events Services said, "For 26 years Aggreko has provided modular, mobile power and temperature control solutions for the national football championship game. We were honoured to be part of the games's "golden anniversary" and support the many installations required to give spectators an experience they will never forget at this milestone event". 

Aggreko's major events division, Aggreko Event Services provided 16 MW of temporary power; 1,400 KW of electric heat; engineered cooling solutions for the big game and the surrounding VIP and hospitality venues; a crew of 12 technicians to manage the installation and operations; including hundreds of accessories, including panels, transformers and about 250,000 ft. of cable.

Our technical experts monitored the installation via Aggreko Remote Monitoring (ARM) - a proprietary real-time monitoring and diagnostic service - to ensure everything run to peak efficiency.
