Boost from Americas to spark Aggreko
Aggreko, the FTSE 100 generators giant, yesterday said that strength in the Americas would see revenues grow 5 per cent during the first half of the year, but trading profit for the six months will still be in line with last year's £159m.
The temporary power group said the Americas will grow revenues by 11 per cent in the first half, and Europe, the Middle East and Africa by 8 per cent. It added: "We expect the local business to deliver a strong first half while trading in Power Projects remains subdued."
The company said first-half Asian revenues would be about 6 per cent lower than last year, mostly because of lower revenues from Japan, which had hired generators after the Fukushima earthquake, and Indonesia.
