Tripoli, 10 January 2014:
To support the country’s electricity deficit, a contract with American-based fast-track power solutions firm APR Energy for 200 . . .[restrict]megawatts of mobile diesel power modules has been extended.
The contract was signed in June 2013, expanding APR Energy’s 250 megawatt gas turbine contact in Libya. The combined 450 megawatt mobile power solution was the single largest contract in the industry of fast-track mobile power, according to APR Energy.
“I am delighted to announce our first extension in Libya,” APR Energy’s Chief Executive Officer John Campion said. “Libya continues to face growing demand for power, and we look forward to continue delivering solutions to GECOL and the Ministry in supporting the ongoing electricity needs of the Libyan people.”
The 250 megawatt gas turbine contract was not due for renewal until summer 2014, APR Energy said. [/restrict]
