APR Energy plc, a provider of power solutions, has extended and expanded its interim power solution for Société Nationale d’Éléctricité du Sénégal (Senelec), Senegal’s national electric utility. The requirements include installation and operation of an additional 48 MW of mobile diesel-powered generation, and the redeployment of assets from Libya, to supplement an existing 20 MW block of power at APR Energy’s Kounoune site. The contract term for the combined 68 MW extends into the fourth quarter of 2015.
APR Energy also has extended its 40 MW mobile gas turbine project in Rocha Pinto, Angola, located near the capital city of Luanda in Africa. APR Energy provides an additional 40 MW of power generation at its plant in Morro Bento, which was extended through the first quarter of 2016 earlier this year.
The Angola and Senegal projects, with additional plant sites in Botswana and Mali, combine to provide more than 180 MW of power generation capacity to Sub-Saharan Africa.
John Campion, executive chairman, APR Energy said “The planning, financing and construction of permanent power plants can take many years, and our mobile gas turbines and power modules are perfect interim solutions that provide customers the flexibility and full service they need during the development of permanent generation.”
APR Energy provides large-scale, fast-track power and serves both utility and industrial segments. It provides power generation solutions to customers and communities around the world, with an emphasis on Africa, the Americas, Asia-Pacific and the Middle East.
