Aggreko signs 100 MW gas-fuelled temporary power contract in Côte d'Ivoire
Aggreko plc, the global leader in the provision of temporary power and temperature control services, confirms reports in the African press that it has signed a contract to provide 100 MW of gas-fuelled temporary power in Côte d'Ivoire. The contract will run for two years, and is in addition to the 100 MW Aggreko installed in 2010; the contract is subject to the fulfilment of certain conditions precedent usual for a contract of this type. The estimated value of the contract is around $75 million, which includes the supply of a 225 kv sub-station.
The contract, awarded by the Société des Energies de Côte d'Ivoire (CI-ENERGIES), will reinforce the power supply in Cote d'Ivoire and act as a bridge between today's immediate needs and the construction of permanent capacity.
Rupert Soames, Chief Executive of Aggreko, 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."

Aggreko provides power and temperature control solutions to customers who need them either very quickly, or for a short or indeterminate length of time. Examples would be the supply of power to an industrial site which needs to service its permanent power supply, supplying a whole city in times of power shortage, or providing a major sporting event with power and cooling systems. We serve our customers either through our 165 service centres, which we call the Local Business, or globally through our International Power Projects business.
In the Local business, which accounts for about half of our revenues, we hire our equipment to customers, who then operate it for themselves, although we retain responsibility for servicing and maintaining it. In the International Power Projects business, which also accounts for about half of our revenues, we operate as a power producer. We install and operate power plants and we charge our customers both for providing the generating capacity, and for the electricity we produce. We design and manufacture equipment specifically for these requirements in our factory in Dumbarton, Scotland.
Aggreko is the exclusive supplier of temporary power to the London 2012 Olympics, and we also provide power to national grids in around 50 countries including Indonesia, Bangladesh, Angola, Kenya, Venezuela, Chile, Brazil and the USA.
