APR Energy, a provider of fast-track power solutions, said Thursday it was awarded contracts for two five-year projects valued at more than $450 million by the Ministry of Energy and Mining of Argentina.
Together, the two projects will use 14 of the company’s dual-fuel mobile gas turbines, which offer a combined 350 MW of generating capacity.
“This is the largest single award in the history of APR Energy, and it is the result of having the best people and the best technology in our industry,” said APR Chairman and Chief Executive Officer John Campion.
The company’s mobile turbines are capable of producing power with alternative fuels such as LPG, naphtha and kerosene. What’s more, the technology requires a smaller footprint and emits fewer emissions and less noise compared with high-speed reciprocating engines generating the same amount of power, APR said.
With the order, APR said it has secured more than 750 MW of new business for 2016. It is the company’s fourth award in the past year for mobile gas turbines, including new projects in Egypt and Tasmania.
