Aggreko to provide 40-MW power package to Guam for one-year period

Aggreko plc, a provider of modular, mobile power and adjacent product solutions, said Nov. 9 that it has been commissioned to supply the Guam Power Authority with a 40-MW power package for the next 12 months, as a result of a competitive tender process.

On Aug. 31 this year, an explosion and subsequent fire broke out at the Cabras Power Plant in Piti, resulting in the shutdown of two of four power plants on site. In response, the Guam Power Authority put out to tender a contract to supply a 40-MW power package to supplement baseload power to the island’s grid network.

The authority cited outstanding fuel efficiency of the Aggreko’s Tier II engine as a critical success factor of the winning bid. In addition to this, the flexible and modular nature of Aggreko’s 1-MW generator units provides the option to scale-up and scale-down as required.

Venkie Shantaram, Regional Director for Aggreko North Asia, said: “We are delighted to be selected by the Guam Power Authority to help address this important power generation requirement. The package we provided highlights once again Aggreko’s ability to rapidly mobilise fast-track, turn-key power solutions to support our customers’ needs, delivering significant fuel savings, no matter where in the world they operate.”

Aggreko will be supplying a full fast-track turn-key power package comprising engineering services, transport, fuel tanks, installation, commissioning, EPA certified engines and on-site operators, and decommissioning.

Aggreko employs over 7,700 people operating from 211 locations. In 2014 it served customers in about 100 countries. Aggreko plc is listed on the London Stock Exchange (AGK.L) and is headquartered in Scotland.
