DJIBOUTI, March 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ –

Aggreko, the world leader in the provision of temporary power and temperature control
services, in conjunction with its local partner TKE-DJPL will provide a 57 MW fast-track
power solution to Djibouti to bring much needed additional power capacity into the
country.

TKE-DJPL, in partnership with the Djibouti government, is working on improving energy
supplies across the country through a combination of thermal and renewable energy
projects. In order to address the immediate needs of its customers, TKE-DJPL partnered

six weeks from the date of contract signing. The remaining 52 MW is scheduled to be
commissioned and operational within May 2013.

“This project highlights the capability of Aggreko as the world’s leading fast-track
power provider to respond to the needs of our customers with large-scale power plants
being designed, installed and operational within extremely tight time frames,” said James
Shepherd, Managing Director, Aggreko Southern and East Africa.

Commenting on the project, Jaime Lopez, Chief Executive Officer, TKE-DJPL said,
“Partnering with Aggreko allows us to rapidly deliver much needed energy to Djibouti while
we work on longer term plans to address the power needs of the country. TKE-DJPL is
working closely with the Government of Djibouti to ensure that energy supplies are
improved immediately while long term solutions are put in place.”

Aggreko plc is the world leader in the supply of temporary power and temperature
control solutions. Aggreko employs over 4,500 people operating from 165 locations. In 2011
we served customers in about 100 countries, and had revenues of approximately GBP 1.4bn
(USD 2.2bn or Euros 1.6bn). Aggreko plc is listed on the London Stock Exchange (AGK.L), is
a member of the FTSE 100 index, and is headquartered in Scotland. For more information,
please visit the company website at http://www.aggreko.com.

Aggreko provides power and temperature control solutions to customers who need them
either very quickly, or for a short or indeterminate length of time. Examples would be the
supply of power to an industrial site which needs to service its permanent power supply,
supplying a whole city in times of power shortage, or providing a major sporting event
with power and cooling systems. We serve our customers either through our 165 service
centres, which we call the Local business, or globally through our International Power
Projects business.

In the Local business [http://www.aggreko.com/products-and-services ], which accounts
for about half of our revenues, we hire our equipment to customers, who then operate it
for themselves, although we retain responsibility for servicing and maintaining it. In the
International Power Projects business
[http://www.aggreko.com/industries/case-study-library ], which also accounts for about half
of our revenues, we operate as a power producer. We install and operate power plants and
we charge our customers both for providing the generating capacity, and for the
electricity we produce. We design and manufacture equipment specifically for these
requirements in our factory in Dumbarton, Scotland.

Recent customers include the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games
