APR Energy Starts 2013 Strong with New Contracts and Extensions
JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Jan. 24, 2013
JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Jan. 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --APR Energy is pleased to
announce the award of two new contracts for fast-track, modularized power
solutions in Guatemala and Indonesia, along with extensions of existing
contracts in Senegal and Gabon. These new awards and extensions, equalling
101MW, represent further development into strategically important sectors for
APR Energy's contract in Guatemala will provide electricity to the Escobal
silver mine in San Rafael Las Flores, Santa Rosa, about 40km outside of the
capital, Guatemala City. APR Energy's plant will serve as the sole power
source for the critical operations of the mine, independent from the local
grid system. This contract is the latest in a string of extractive industry
projects that APR Energy has undertaken, including a 2011 project in
Mozambique with Vale, the second largest commercial mining company in the
world, and another with a power facility in northwest Botswana in 2012.
The awarded contract in Indonesia will provide a diesel-fired power plant on
the island of Nias to feed into the state-owned electrical grid system. APR
Energy's 15MW modularized solution will help counteract the supply-demand
imbalance and geographical limitations of the region.
"Both of these new projects represent big moves for APR Energy," said APR
Energy President and Chief Operating Officer, Laurence Anderson. "The
Indonesia project offers us entrance into one of the largest temporary power
markets in the world, and follows the opening of our Malaysia hub in the fall
of 2012. The Guatemala project falls directly in line with company interest to
further penetrate the lucrative mining industry market and helps APR diversify
our global customer base."
APR Energy also renewed recently its existing contracts in Senegal and Gabon,
totaling 70MW. As part of both of these extensions, APR has committed to
relocating its mobile equipment in order to meet its customers' changing
regional power needs.
"I feel strongly that the new contracts in Indonesia and Guatemala, along with
the current contract extensions, are further evidence of our continued
customer satisfaction and the overall strength of the market," said APR Energy
Chief Executive Officer, John Campion. "The 101MW in January follow on the
heels of the 200MW contract award and 100MW renewal in Uruguay in December and
show an unmistakable momentum in our business."
