European Tour signs long-term deal with Aggreko

Golf's European Tour has signed a six-year deal with temporary power supplier Aggreko.

The partnership, which will run through until 2023, will see Aggreko supply power and climate control equipment to multiple men’s professional golf tournaments, including four Rolex Series international premium category events per year, and the 2018 and 2022 Ryder Cups.

The firm will also supply temporary power generation, distribution and temperature control equipment, as well as related design and project management services, at a minimum of 12 tournaments per year between 2017 and 2023 across the European Tour, European Challenge Tour and European Senior Tour.

Aggreko will provide services at four Rolex Series events per year – the BMW PGA Championship, Open de France, Irish Open and Scottish Open – plus the Portugal Masters, British Masters and the Andalucia Valderrama Masters.

Nathan Homer, chief commercial and marketing officer of the European Tour, said: “This new partnership with Aggreko will help to reduce the complexities in our ever-growing and developing business, as we press forward with our plans to innovate, grow the game, and build on important initiatives like the premium Rolex Series.

“With multiple locations over 30 countries, Aggreko is a trusted and ambitious company that matches the European Tour’s global outlook, and we look forward to working together over the next six years to the benefit of both companies.”

The agreement also includes one Challenge Tour and three Senior Tour events per year, and the next two home Ryder Cup tournaments, at Le Golf National in France in 2018 and Marco Simone Golf and Country Club in Italy in 2022.
