Aggreko confirmed as Official Temporary Energy Supplier for the 2023 Ryder Cup
Aggreko will be the official temporary energy supplier for the 44th Ryder Cup teeing off in September. They will provide power and HVAC across the event from all hospitality to both the opening and closing ceremonies.
The Ryder Cup is one of the most iconic tournaments in golf and attracts tens-of-thousands of fans from all over the globe. This will be Aggreko's fifth time supporting the European leg of the competition having previously supplied energy to the 2006, 2010, 2014, and 2018 editions.
It will be the first time ever power for the Ryder Cup will be supplied by a combination of resilient temporary generators and two solar arrays to further improve energy efficiency.
“We are proud to continue our ongoing support of the Ryder Cup working with Ryder Cup Europe and the PGA of America for the event that’s on every golf fan’s calendar,” said Jono Rose, General Manager - Aggreko Event Services. “Every global sporting occasion presents its own set of unique challenges. Aggreko not only has the tools to solve these complex situations, but to do so in a way that continues to reduce carbon footprint and implement a flawless Ryder Cup event.”
“Our team will be on the ground months ahead of the event to ensure we can meet every demand asked of us, so that the organisers can deliver yet another unforgettable Ryder Cup.”
All hospitality, catering, on-course screens and fan experiences, open and closing ceremonies, and merchandising shops will be powered by Aggreko. Major sporting events are inherently energy intensive. However, Aggreko continue to deliver more green technologies and scale existing ones to reduce major sporting event’s environmental impact.
“We’re delighted to continue our work with Aggreko as they provide a best-in-class service and industry knowledge that is second to none,” said Paul Dunstan, Ryder Cup Operations Director. “Every course is unique and we need to find specific solutions to energy supply needs and the challenges the course presents. With Aggreko’s expertise, we can be confident that our operations team and partners can host the most famous golfing event on the calendar without a fault.”
Installation to #SetTheStage at the Marco Simone Golf and Country Club will take around six months, with a number of the Aggreko team remaining on the ground to ensure seamless supply of energy as well as to monitor climate control throughout the Ryder Cup.
