Aggreko Chooses Loudoun County for North American Data Center Headquarters

The UK-based energy solutions leader will open its division headquarters in Leesburg, Va., for access to Loudoun County’s Data Center Alley.

Loudoun Economic Development proudly announce that Aggreko will establish its Data Center Division’s North American headquarters in Loudoun County. The energy solutions leader—globally headquartered in the UK, with major investments around the world—chose a Leesburg location for its access to Loudoun’s Data Center Alley.

Loudoun Economic Development collaborated with global consultancy firm InterGlobix on this recruitment opportunity.

“We are pleased to welcome Aggreko to the growing ecosystem of energy and infrastructure companies that call Loudoun home. As much as the data centers are important to the local and global economies, supporting companies like Aggreko are equally important to Loudoun’s future,” Loudoun Economic Development’s Executive Director Buddy Rizer said. “I wish Aggreko a very bright #LoudounPossible future and look forward to partnering with them on any workforce and real estate needs.”

Aggreko provides temporary power through generators and energy storage during construction, maintenance, and upgrades as well as augmenting the grid when local power has not yet been delivered.

The company provides climate control through chiller and air handler plants, ensuring that the building shells are a safe working environment and warranties are maintained, as well as during emergencies if on-site climate equipment fails. Aggreko also provides support equipment for all stages of commissioning, factory acceptance testing, and other customer needs.

Loudoun is home to both the largest and fastest-growing data center hub in the world, which includes 25 million square feet of operational data center space and another 4 million square feet in development. The market now has more than 2 gigawatts of critical load for data centers and is the trusted hometown for the global data economy.

“The choice to establish a presence in Loudoun was a natural one, as virtually all of our data center customers are present in the Data Center Alley,” Head of Aggreko’s North American Data Center Division Mike Clemson said. “The opportunity for us to grow our data center business in Loudoun County is tremendous.”

Data centers directly or indirectly employ more than 13,000 people in Loudoun County, not including hospitality or construction jobs. There has not been a single day without data center construction in Loudoun for more than 14 years.
