Aggreko kept some lights on at Super Bowl

Mon, 02/04/2013 - 17:36 -- Ruth Williams

Aggreko provided 13MWs of power to the 2013 Super Bowl at the New Orleans Mercedes-Benz Superdome. There is a lesson to be learned about the importance of backup provisions following the much talked about low-light of this year’s American football clash - the power cut in the second half.

Aggreko provided back up power for the halftime show and to the designated press areas for national and international broadcasters aas well as to VIP sections – resulting in no disruption in these areas.

The problem was with the stadium power, provided Entergy, which had no back up power supply. In a statement Entergy said the problem related to a piece of equipment monitoring the electrical load detected a system abnormality and caused the power to be cut off.

This high profile power outage lasted 35 minutes, and halted the game until the problem was fixed.
