APR Energy also announces that it has signed an extension to its existing 100MW contract with the customer, with the term to run into mid-2014.
"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 Latin America, Africa, the Middle East and Asia," said John Campion, APR Energy Chief Executive Officer.
