Securitas Finland Renewed their Backup Systems

Securitas offers security services to business, communities and Private customers. When security is at stake the systems must be online always. That is why Securitas Finland renewed their backup systems with reliable Finnish partners.

Eaton Power Quality supplied new highly efficient UPS systems for alarm and service centers.

AGCO Power took out the old but well-served diesel generator and delivered new customized fully automatic AG110 to supply power for extended blackouts.

The project had its surprises and challenges such as tight and difficult hauling route and two separate electrical systems, but nevertheless a successful delivery was achieved with good cooperation and in good spirit.

Antarctica2 expedition to the South Pole by MF 5610 tractor powered by AGCO POWER 33 AWI engine awarded a World Record

Massey Ferguson, a worldwide brand of AGCO (NYSE:AGCO), reports that the Antarctica2 expedition to the South Pole by MF 5610 tractor spearheaded by Manon Ossevoort has been officially recognised by Guinness World Records.

A certificate has been awarded to Lead Driver, Manon (aka ‘Tractor Girl’), confirming Antarctica2 as the first expedition to the South Pole in a wheel tractor. The certificate officially details that she “left Novo Runway in Antarctica on 22 November 2014 driving a Massey Ferguson 5610 farm tractor to complete a 4,638 km round trip to the South Pole that lasted 27 days, 19 hr 25 min.”

“We are thrilled that the amazing Antarctica2 adventure has been recognised as a world-first,” says Campbell Scott, Massey Ferguson Director Marketing Services. “We are all so proud that our MF 5610 tractor was chosen to make the trip and that it excelled in every way to ensure that Manon and her team safely reached their destination. It was an awe-inspiring mission that is now firmly part of Massey Ferguson’s story of achievement.”

The expedition was a tough ride for the MF 5610 tractor and Antarctica2 team who faced bitter cold, high altitude, solid ice, snowdrifts and the most extreme, remote terrain. Their daily adventures and emotional arrival at the Pole were followed by millions worldwide on social and broadcast media.

For customers keen to share in the adventure, Massey Ferguson has recently launched an MF 5610 Antarctica2 Special Edition tractor to celebrate the South Pole trek. With the emphasis on high performance, comfort, safety and control, the Special Edition machine is equipped with a package of unique features and exclusive design attributes which reflect the many challenges of the battle across the ice.
