"Scouts2Day" 100-years of scouting on 15th May, The Netherlands
On May 15th Scouting celebrated 100th anniversary with the event Scouts2Day in the city of Utrecht.
More than 25.000 scouts between the age of 7 and 23 found their way with the public transport to the 5 city parks of Utrecht. In a colourful parade in the early morning they went to the specially developed locations for this day. Utrecht welcomed their 25.000 young guests.
Scouting Netherlands and Aggreko have a nice working relationship for many years. The volunteers of Scouting Netherlands have a lot of expertise and they know how to select the right Aggreko equipment. One of the characteristics of a Scouting event is that the distribution networks are very well engineered. They know how to use every kVA from a generator. As an indication: The Total generator power was not more than 150 kVA for the 5 city parks but they needed 25 distribution panels and more than 7.3 km of cables.
Scouting Netherlands and Aggreko are now in full preparation for the JubJam 100 in Roermond. In July, more than 12.000 scouts will stay for two weeks at the lakeside of Roermond at a temporary location. The Jubjam 100 is one of the Top 10 events in the Netherlands in 2010.
