APR Energy has signed a new 100-megawatt (MW) contract in Latin America to provide its fast-track, temporary power solutions. The agreement provides for dual-fuel gas turbines to address anticipated supply shortages and seasonal demand requirements for the customer.

In addition, APR Energy announces that it has signed three contract extensions in Asia, Africa and the Latin America/Caribbean region totaling 160 MW. This includes the continuation of 70 MW of gas turbines in Japan, where APR Energy has been providing fast-track power solutions since the tragic Tohoku-Chihou-Taiheiyo-Oki Earthquake and associated tsunami in March 2011 that severely damaged Japan's energy grid.

"This new deal, combined with the three contact extensions, was driven by our ability to offer our customers with fast-track solutions that meet their specific technology needs and emissions requirements," said APR Energy CEO, John Campion. "It is further testament to the opportunities and success we are seeing in our strategy to offer gas turbines in the temporary-power marketplace."

The 100 MW of dual-fuel turbines are being repositioned to Uruguay from a previously-announced 100 MW award in Mexico due to permitting delays on that project.
