Aggreko has been selected to provide temporary power to the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.
The deal will see the Scottish power provider supplying temporary power for the broadcasting of all the matches in 12 host cities across Brazil.
In addition, Aggreko will provide power and temperature control services for the International Broadcast Centre in Rio de Janeiro.
Aggreko has a strong presence in South America; having bought Brazil’s largest power rental business— PoitEnergia— in 2012 it is well positioned to provide the necessary power for the championship.
The media coverage of the 64 matches will be watched by three billion people around the world and require Aggreko to supply, install and operate more than 46MW of generating capacity, 1,000 distribution panels and 200 km of electric cables.
