FacebookTwitterGoogle+Share

JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Oct. 31, 2017 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ — When natural disasters knock out critical power supplies, customers around the world count on APR Energy to deliver large-scale power fast. The latest is hurricane-ravaged Puerto Rico, where APR Energy has commissioned two mobile gas turbines and connected them to the local power grid just 15 days after its equipment arrived on site.

The fast-track solution features two new GE TM2500 Gen 8 mobile gas turbines, which will help to restore power in the San Juan area and stabilize the power grid, reducing the risk of outages.

“We are honored to be able to help the people of Puerto Rico at this extremely difficult time. Our company has provided emergency power after disasters such as the earthquake and tsunami that devastated Japan in 2012, and we know how critical it is to restore electricity as quickly as possible,” said APR Energy Chairman John Campion. “I am extremely proud of our team for getting this plant up and running in just 15 days, one of the fastest installations ever for the TM2500.”

On October 13 – the day after the contract was signed with U.S. Army Corps of Engineers contractor Weston Solutions – APR Energy’s turbines arrived at the port of San Juan. The following day, they were transported to the Palo Seco power plant for installation.

“APR Energy is committed to helping Puerto Rico for as long as necessary, and we stand ready to provide additional generating capacity and grid stability support as requested,” Campion said.

The Puerto Rico project uses the newest generation of GE’s turbine technology found in jet aircraft engines. The fuel-flexible turbines offer a higher power density and lower emissions than competing solutions using diesel reciprocating engines, as well as the ability to switch from diesel to natural gas if necessary.

As the world’s leading provider of mobile turbine power, APR Energy has used the technology to generate electricity on other Caribbean islands including Martinique and St. Thomas in the U.S. Virgin Islands. On St. Thomas, where the company has operated since 2012, its highly reliable TM2500 turbines continued to provide electricity to island residents while much of the power generation in other parts of the Caribbean was knocked out following Hurricane Irma in early September and Maria two weeks later.

More than 200 mobile and trailer-mounted TM2500s have been deployed globally and in some of the most extreme conditions on Earth, including the deserts of Africa and remote communities in Asia. Based on GE’s proven LM2500 product family with over 90 million operational hours of experience, the TM2500 can be transported via land, sea or air and can be commissioned in days. It can ramp up to full power within minutes to support grid security during periods of high demand, and the latest TM2500 unit can generate more than 35MW of power using gas and/or distillate liquid fuels for greater flexibility.

APR Energy 250MW Extension in Uruguay Gains Final Signature, Approval

JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Sept. 7, 2015 /PRNewswire/ – APR Energy plc (the “Company”), a global leader in fast-track power solutions, today announces final signature and government approval of the extension of its 250MW power generation project through the end of 2015 with Usinas y Trasmisiones Eléctricas (”UTE”), the Uruguayan state power company. The approved contract terms and conditions are unchanged from the agreement announced on 1 July, including the pending sale of 50MW of gas turbines. In that announcement, the Company reported that it had reached agreement with UTE on the terms of the extension, and was awaiting completion of the standard government review.

APR Energy has been serving UTE since 2012 through two power plants, located in La Plata and Punta del Tigre. The mobile gas turbine solution provides bridging power while a permanent generating facility is being constructed as well as much-needed reserve capacity as the region deals with diminished hydroelectric power output resulting from a prolonged drought.

“UTE has been an outstanding, long-term customer, and their decision to extend our projects five times is a reflection of the high quality of service we provide and the reliability of our technology,” said Chief Executive Officer Laurence Anderson. “The decision by UTE underscores the fact that our fast-track mobile solutions are an ideal source of interim power during construction of permanent infrastructure.”
