Shanghai China, September 2009 - Aggreko, the global leader in the provision of temporary power and temperature control services, has supported the smooth running of the Shanghai Rugby 7s, held at the Shanghai Rugby Football Club on September 12 & 13, 2009.
Aggreko supplied both power and cooling to the event's VIP hospitality area together with back-up power and temperature control services for the stadium to ensure that the staging of the event would not be affected by the extreme heat experienced in Shanghai during the summer months. All the specialist equipment and support services provided to the event were sourced from Aggreko's depot in Shanghai, which has been supporting the local community since 2006.
In addition to providing power and cooling for the event, Aggreko was also one of the main sponsors of the tournament and supplied branded kit to all the referees. Regarding the importance of the event to the company, Mr Debajit Das, Managing Director Aggreko Asia, said: 'We are proud to continue our involvement with Rugby 7s, after being part of the Dubai 7s tournament from its humble beginnings 13 years ago to its position now as the opening tournament of the IRB World 7s series. We plan to continue our support for rugby in Asia, both at an international and grass roots level.'
