BALI, Indonesia, March 20, 2014
BALI, Indonesia, March 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
Temporary power provider will meet 23 per cent
of Bali's total electricity demand
Aggreko, the world leader in the provision of temporary powergeneration and
temperaturecontrol services, today announced a 45 MW expansion to its power
projects in Bali. The announcement comes on the back of successful
re-tendering for the 125 MW of capacity it already delivers to the city,
bringing Aggreko's total power output to 170 MW.
The combined 170 MW of capacity will meet 23 per cent of total electricity
demand in Bali, injecting vital power into the local grid and maintaining
essential infrastructure and services that drive the tourism industry. The
additional capacity comes on line at a critical time as the demand increases
and the ability to meet the demand is unfortunately limited by the existing
With a booming economy and demand for energy increasing steadily by
approximately 9.75 per cent each year, the 45 MW capacity expansion was
commissioned in Pesanggaran (near the Bali city centre) to bolster the
existing power infrastructure and ensure the continued strong performance of
the region's tourism industry. The project win sees Aggreko continue its
positive relationship with Indonesia Power subsidiary PT Cogindo Daya Bersama,
having first worked together to install 125 MW of capacity in Pemaron (in the
northern area of Bali) in 2010.
"With Bali attracting an estimated 300,000 visitors each month, tourism is
vital to the local community's economic prosperity," said Mangampin Saragi,
President Director of PT Cogindo Daya Bersama. "The addition of 45 MW into the
grid reflects our desire to strengthen the region's energy infrastructure and
ensure Bali remains an attractive destination. We are committed to driving
consistent and reliable power supply, and the decision to appoint Aggreko for
this project reflects the strong working relationship and trust we have
developed over the last 4 years."
"We are excited to be continuing our work with PT Cogindo Daya Bersama," said
Debajit Das, Regional Director - APAC (Asia Pacific) for Aggreko. "We have
demonstrated the flexibility of Aggreko's service by offering 170 MW of
capacity across two separate locations in Bali. Our successful re-tender and
appointment for the 45 MW expansion project also reflect our ability to help
customers and utilities overcome roadblocks by eliminating power limitations
in a way that makes business sense."

Aggreko provides power and temperature control solutions to customers who need
them either very quickly, or for a short or indeterminate length of time.
Examples would be the supply of power to an industrial site which needs to
service its permanent power supply, supplying a whole city in times of power
shortage, or providing a major sporting event with power and cooling systems.
We serve our customers either through our 202 service centres, which we call
the Local business, or globally through our Power Projects business.
In the Local business, which accounts for about half of our revenues, we hire
our equipment to customers, who then operate it for themselves, although we
retain responsibility for servicing and maintaining it. In the Power Projects
business, which also accounts for about half of our revenues, we operate as a
power producer. We install and operate powerplants and we charge our
customers both for providing the generating capacity, and for the electricity
we produce. We design and manufacture equipment specifically for these
requirements in our factory in Dumbarton, Scotland.
Recent customers include the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, the
Ryder Cup and Cirque du Soleil and the power utilities in over 50 countries
including the UK, France, Ivory Coast, Mozambique, Indonesia, Bangladesh,
Argentina, Venezuela, Chile, Brazil and the USA.
In 2013 we fulfilled almost 48,000 customers' assignments and 72% of those who
responded to our research gave us a recommendation of 9 or 10 out of 10.
