Aggreko has won a tender to supply the western Pacific island of Guam with 40 MW of emergency power.
The need for the contract arose following an explosion and fire at the Cabras fuel oil-fired power plant in Piti this summer, which caused around $100m-worth of damage and resulted in the shutdown of two of four units. Guam Power Authority subsequently put out the tender to supplement base load power to the island’s grid network.
Venkie Shantaram, Aggreko’s director of North Asia, said the deal “highlights Aggreko’s ability to rapidly mobilise fast-track, turnkey power solutions”.
Aggreko will supply engineering services, transport, fuel tanks, installation, commissioning, engines, on-site operators and decommissioning.
