The Kaltimex team has a proven track record in the energy market and will help Opra to further strengthen and develop growth in Asia-Pacific, the company said.
“With more than 1800 MW of installed power and a product range which is complementing Opra’s value proposition, having Kaltimex as our partner will significantly increase our ability to service our customers in the APAC region,” said Juha van Riet, CEO at OPRA Turbines. “At Opra, we look forward to a long working relationship together and many future successes.”
K.K. Ralhan, Group chairman at Kaltimex, said the company is pleased to offer Opra’s robust turbines to the two most populous countries of ASEAN, Indonesia and the Philippines.
“Addition of Bangladesh demonstrates our confidence in the quality and performance of these turbines,” Ralhan said. “The fact that these turbines take on even low calorific value fuels, make them unique. They provide an ideal solution for CHP. Opra’s eye on taking on hydrogen, the fuel of the future, shows that its research and developmentD is strong and ready to provide smart solutions. Our experience in dealing with similar equipment gives us a distinct advantage to market and sell them in these countries. We are quite confident of achieving success.”
