APR Energy Turbines to Power South Pacific Mining

Wednesday, March 26, 2014

The second large-scale power generation project announced by APR Energy in Asia Pacific region in the last month

APR Energy, a company in fast-track power solutions, announced today the signing of a mobile gas turbine contract to provide fast-track power to an industrial customer in the South Pacific. The plant will comprise mobile gas turbines producing a guaranteed 60MW and will power the customer's mining operations.

APR Energy's fuel-efficient mobile turbine plant was the customer's preferred solution, meeting strict EU emissions requirements and able to fit within the challenging space constraints at the mine site. APR Energy's plant will run on diesel and offers the flexibility to seamlessly switch to natural gas if needed.

The project adds to APR Energy's track record in the extractive industry sector that includes successful power projects in Mozambique, Guatemala, and Botswana. It is also the company's second large-scale turbine contract following its strategic alliance with GE and acquisition of the GE power rental business in October of last year. The plant is expected to begin operations in late Q2 2014 and run through to late 2015.

"We are very pleased to have signed our largest-ever contract in the industrial sector," said John Campion, Chief Executive Officer of APR Energy. "This is the second contract for large-scale power that we have signed in the last month and, together with the Myanmar project announced in February, adds to the rapid growth we are achieving in the Asia Pacific region in recent months. This project reflects the versatility that mobile gas turbines offer our customers, and shows that the technology can be applied not only to utilities, but to industrial customers as well."

Clive Turton, APR Energy Vice President of Asia Pacific said, "Our mobile turbine technology provides the customer with the best balance of emissions control, footprint, and fuel efficiency, all critical factors in the choice of this particular customer. APR Energy aims to provide the broadest choice of generation technologies in our industry, and our projects in the region now feature mobile turbine plants, running on either natural gas or diesel, as well as gas reciprocating engine plants and diesel reciprocating engine plants."
