APR Energy, a global leader in fast-track power solutions, has signed an extension agreement in Angola to prolong its power generation contract for the next six months with a goal to provide 40MW of power at the Rocha Pinto site near Angola’s capital, Luanda, the company announced in an statement.
APR Energy launched the first mobile gas turbine project in sub-Saharan Africa in 2013 via an initial contract with Angola’s state-owned utility Rede Nacional de Transporte. APR Energy also operates a 40MW facility at the Morro Bento site near Luanda.
In addition, the company has successfully extended its contract in Iraq by a year, to run through 2016. APR Energy acquired the Basra-based power plant in 2013 as a part of its acquisition of GE’s power rental business. The plant has been in operation since 2012 and comprises six GE TM2500 mobile gas turbines, TradeArabia reported.
