APR Energy Adds 200 MW In Uruguay
New contract highlights high demand for temporary power, original 100 MW contract extended
APR Energy announced that it has signed a new 200 MW contract in Uruguay to provide its fast-track, temporary power solutions. The agreement provides for diesel-fired gas turbines to address anticipated power needs for the customer. The initial term of the contract will run into mid-2014.
APR Energy also announces that it has signed an extension to its existing 100MW contract with the customer, with the term to run into mid-2014.
"This new deal, together with the contract extension, is representative of the strong demand we continue to see across the temporary power market, particularly in Latin America, Africa, the Middle East and Asia,” said John Campion, APR Energy chief executive officer. “As seen with the Uruguay contract, a key growth driver of the temporary power market continues to be demand for mobile gas turbines, for which we are well positioned as one of the world’s largest providers.”
APR Energy has previously operated similar modular turbine power projects in other countries around the globe, most notably in Japan and Martinique.
