Angola rents mobile gas turbines from US company

11 December 2013

The American company APR Energy will supply 40 megawatts in mobile gas turbines to Angola, the first deal of its kind in Sub-Saharan Africa, the company announced in a statement released in Jacksonville, Florida.

This contract increases APR Energy’s footprint in Angola to 80 megawatts, adding to existing contracts for diesel power modules, which were renewed last week for a new 12-month period.

The new contract, likewise for 12 months, will involve two of the four gas turbines acquired in the scope of APR Energy’s recent acquisition of the energy production equipment rental division of the American group General Electric.

The statement released by APR Energy (http://www.aprenergy.com/), indicates that these two turbines should begin operating in Angola in early 2014. (macauhub)
