EAC Signs Contract With APR Energy To Address Continuing Electricity Supply Shortages
A Florida-based company that specialises in temporary power solutions has signed a contract with the Electricity Authority of Cyprus (EAC) in order to provide 120MW of diesel generation units to address continuing electricity supply shortages and help meet seasonal demand at the Moni Substation in Limassol.
According to APR Energy, it is the first contract that APR Energy has won in Europe. John Campion, CEO of APR Energy, said: "This application is what we do best, fast–track power delivery. EAC has a continuing need for supplemental power to deal with supply shortages and peak season demand, and we are delighted that they have chosen APR to deliver it.”
APR Energy offers temporary power solutions on a fast-track basis to government and industrial customers around the globe. Contracts with customers are typically for a period of between 12 months and 3 years, during which time APR Energy provides all installation, operation and maintenance services for the project as a whole.
These rapid, turnkey power plants are utilized for many applications, including support for seasonal demand, remote locations with limited access to distribution, disaster relief and other unscheduled outages as well as large industrial facilities.
After Vassiliko power station was critically damaged in a deadly explosion in July 2011, the EAC turned back to its older plants, which have been struggling under the strain of replacing 50 percent of the island's power. A recent blackout on April 4th proved that the EAC's supply woes are not yet over.
