The Aggreko partnership aims to deliver better telecom services and improve the internal and external connections between it’s subsidiaries.

“When considering this contract renewal, we weighed the option of using several regional organisations and other worldwide solution providers to meet our strategic needs, versus retaining Orange Business Services as our worldwide provider and partner,” Aggreko Director of Infrastructure and Operations Stephen Henry said.

“Orange’s global strategy and strong performance over the last eight years convinced us they are the partner we can trust to continue delivering our global network services. By nature of what we do, we operate and work in remote areas of the world with limited coverage, and Orange’s geographic reach and expertise in delivering a solution that fits our requirements in a timely manner were deciding factors,” he added.
