APR Energy has signed extensions of its power generation contracts in Iraq and Angola.
The company’s extension in Iraq is for a one-year term, and runs through 2016.
APR Energy acquired the gas-fired Basra plant in 2013 as part of its acquisition of GE’s power rental business.
In Angola, the company has signed a six-month contract extension to provide 40MW of power at the Rocha Pinto site near Angola’s capital of Luanda.
As part of the extension, the customer has reaffirmed its commitment to fulfil all past, present and future financial obligations.
When initially signed in 2013, the contract with Angola’s state-owned utility Rede Nacional de Transporte represented APR Energy’s first mobile gas turbine project in sub-Saharan Africa. APR Energy also operates a second 40MW facility at the Morro Bento site near Luanda.
“We are pleased to continue our relationships with these important long-term customers,” said chief executive officer Laurence Anderson.
