MAPUTO, Mozambique, June 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

Aggreko, the world leader in the provision of temporary power and
temperature control solutions, will supply a 10 MW interim power solution to
the Moma Mineral Sands mine in the north-east of Mozambique, owned and
operated by Ireland's Kenmare Resources.

Synchronised with the local electricity grid, the Aggreko plant will provide
the Moma facility with high-quality, flexible power to supplement grid
supplies during periods of peak demand. This will include providing full prime
power, 24/7 during peak summer months and peaking power during evening hours
when demands on the grid are at their highest due to increased domestic
consumption. The solution ensures that operations at Moma can continue to be
powered from the local grid, yet can also operate 100% independently as and
when the need arises.

"We chose to work with Aggreko based on their strong reputation in powering
African mining operations," commented Michael Carvill, Managing Director,
Kenmare Resources. "By combining a stand-alone Aggreko plant with our supply
from the local grid we are ensuring a continuous power supply to the Moma
facility. This gives us sufficient power to run our operations and ensure
minimal disruption caused by unstable grid supply, particularly during the
summer months."

"Aggreko has significant experience in powering mining operations across the
globe," commented James Shepherd, Managing Director, Aggreko Southern and East
Africa. "Here in Mozambique we are helping Kenmare Resources to maintain their
production by providing them a highly reliable power supply to supplement the
local grid."

Aggreko provides mission critical power supplies to mining projects throughout
the world. This is through the supply of full-lifecycle project power from
initial project construction and development, to full production and project
ramp-down. In situations when existing power supplies go of line due to
equipment breakdown or maintenance, Aggreko also provides rapid response,
emergency power to keep mines operational.
