JACKSONVILLE, Florida, March 11, 2015 / PRNewswire — APR Energy, a global leader in fast-track power solutions, is pleased to announce that it has commissioned a 20 megawatt expansion of its power plant in Myanmar, providing the Myanmar Electric Power Enterprise (MEPE) with a guaranteed minimum of 102MW of power generation.
Based in Kyaukse, in the Mandalay region, the expanded power plant is one of the largest thermal plants in Myanmar, providing electricity to over six million people. It features the newest generation CAT low-emission mobile gas power modules and runs on Myanmar’s indigenous, clean burning natural gas. APR Energy’s plant has been in operation since May, 2014.
Clive Turton, Managing Director Asia Pacific at APR Energy, said: “Expanding contracts is an important part of APR Energy’s strategy and business model, together with new contracts and renewals. The added capacity at our Myanmar plant follows our previously announced expansion in Indonesia earlier this year, and is the result of growing regional demand and the high level of service we provide. We look forward to playing a continued role in helping Myanmar supply reliable, efficient power to its people and industries, supporting economic growth and improving overall quality of life.”
