[Source: Aggreko] Aggreko, the world’s leading provider of mobile modular power, temperature control and energy solutions, has announced that they will be providing their industry-leading temporary power modules to Cirque du Soleil for several of the entertainment company’s North American Big Top shows in 2023. The agreement continues Aggreko’s long-standing partnership with Cirque du Soleil, which began in 2012.
For Cirque du Soleil's 2023 season, Aggreko is providing power generators North American runs of Kooza in Houston and Toronto.
Aggreko will coordinate 2,500 kW of reliable, temporary power for each of the 134 performances across the two North American markets. The seamless mobility of Aggreko’s energy solutions guarantees that Cirque du Soleil can tour the continent without experiencing power outages while astonishing audiences with their world-renowned theatrics.
Aggreko’s temporary power solutions ensure that audiences at Cirque du Soleil shows will have uninterrupted experiences, even if power to the grid is cut. The short-term nature of touring shows, and the unique experience of sitting under the “Big Top”, also means that area grids may be stressed by demand from performances, making generators powered by Aggreko’s decades of experience a benefit for the communities hosting the shows as well.
“We’re thrilled to partner again with Cirque du Soleil to manage their temporary power needs, marking the eleventh year of our relationship,“ said Don Gray of Aggreko. “We understand that the immersive experiences of Cirque du Soleil’s shows require no interruptions, which is why we’re happy to lend our expertise in temporary power solutions to guarantee the greatest enjoyment by audiences across North America. Aggreko looks forward to another exciting year of working with Cirque du Soleil to bring the magic of modern circus arts to over 130 audiences in the United States and Canada.”
“Aggreko has successfully provided energy supply for our international touring shows for over a decade, and we’re happy to partner with them for another year ensuring a positive experience for both our performers and the audience,” said Philippe Rochette, Specialist – Electric & HVAC of Cirque du Soleil. “Our North American runs of KOOZA are cornerstones of our international touring plan and thanks to Aggreko’s reliable energy service, we’re confident that we will continue to perform knowing that our energy supply is in good hands.”
