Aggreko wins power contract in Côte d'Ivoire

Temporary power and temperature control giant Aggreko has won a contract in Côte d'Ivoire to provide short-term power supply.

Temporary power and temperature control giant Aggreko has won a contract in Cte d'Ivoire to provide short-term power supply.

The 10MW gas-fuelled temporary power contract, which will run for two years, is in addition to the 100MW the company installed in 2010. It is worth an estimated $75m and was awarded by the Socit des Energies de Cte d'Ivoire (CI-ENERGIES).

The firm said that the contract will reinforce the power supply in Cote d'Ivoire and fulfil the country's needs before the construction of permanent capacity.

Aggreko's Chief Executive Rupert Soames said: "Following the success of the existing 100 MW power plant, we are delighted that our customer has entrusted us with a further 100 MW.

"We believe this underlines the success of our gas-fuelled power plants, in which we have invested heavily in recent years; world-wide we now have over 750 MW of gas-fuelled capacity on rent."
