The agreement raises the company's contract gains this year to 569MW and its contract renewals to 724MW.

John Campion, Chief Executive Officer of APR Energy, said: "This new deal, together with the contract extension, is representative of the strong demand we continue to see across the temporary power market, particularly, in our key markets of Latin America, Africa, the Middle East and Asia. As seen with the Uruguay contract, a key growth driver continues to be demand for mobile gas turbines, for which we are well positioned as one of the world's largest providers."
