YET another gesture of compassion has been shown in light of the destruction brought by Tropical Cyclone Evan last week.

With the hope of giving electricity back to many of the affected areas in the western region, Aggreko New Zealand will offer 10 generators to Samoa and Fiji as soon as final preparations have been made.

Of the 10, six 1250 kVA generators and one transformer will be given to Samoa, with the remaining four 500kVA generators coming to Fiji.

"The Aggreko team in the islands has been working hard all week to help the community whilst also supporting their own families. We are shipping our most powerful units that are capable of supplying power to whole villages as they recover from the cyclone," explained area general manager of Aggreko New Zealand and Pacific Islands, Philip Lendich.

"We are making final preparations, including servicing the generators at our depot in Auckland, ready for the first available shipment and immediate utilisation once they arrive in Samoa and Fiji," he said.
