Djibouti to get 57 MW of temporary power

11 March 2013 – Aggreko, in conjunction with its local partner TKE-DJPL, is to provide a 57 MW fast-track power solution to Djibouti to bring much needed additional power capacity into the country.

TKE-DJPL, in partnership with the Djibouti government, is working on improving energy supply across the country through a combination of thermal and renewable energy projects. To deal with the immediate needs of its customers, TKE-DJPL partnered with Aggreko to bring online a fast-track power solution while longer term projects are in development.
The project will consist of an initial 5.0 MW package that will be operational within six weeks from the date of contract signing. The remaining 52 MW is scheduled to be commissioned and operational within May 2013.

“This project highlights the capability of Aggreko to respond to the needs of our customers with large-scale power plants being designed, installed and operational within extremely tight time frames,” James Shepherd, managing director, Aggreko Southern and East Africa, says.
