Aggreko is to provide 57 MW to the east African nation of Djibouti to bring much needed additional power capacity into the country.
In conjunction with local partner TKE-DJPL, Aggreko’s project will consist of an initial 5 MW package that will be operational within six weeks from the date of contract signing. The remaining 52 MW is scheduled to be commissioned and operational within May 2013.
“This project highlights the capability of Aggreko as the world’s leading fast-track power provider to respond to the needs of our customers with large-scale power plants being designed, installed and operational within extremely tight time frames,” said James Shepherd, Managing Director, Aggreko Southern and East Africa.
Jaime Lopez, CEO of TKE-DJPL said, “Partnering with Aggreko allows us to rapidly deliver much needed energy to Djibouti while we work on longer term plans to address the power needs of the country. TKE-DJPL is working closely with the Government of Djibouti to ensure that energy supplies are improved immediately while long term solutions are put in place.”
