The organisers of the 2018 Ryder Cup have announced a partnership deal with energy equipment supplier Aggreko.

The agreement will see Aggreko deliver 23 mega volt amps of temporary power through 80 generators during this year's competition in the French capital Paris.

Aggreko’s equipment will power all facilities at the 18-hole golf course, including the catering and hospitality areas, the fan screens and the grandstand.

Thirty-eight Aggreko engineers will work on the site for six months overall where they will install, monitor and decommission the equipment.

European Ryder Cup director Richard Hills expressed his delight at the agreement, which sees Aggreko work with the event for the seventh time.

We are delighted to be working with Aggreko once again to deliver a premium event in Paris this year," he said.

"Having worked on a wide range of events from the Olympics to Glastonbury, Aggreko is globally renowned for contributing to the success of world-class experiences.
