13 August 2013 – The electricity utility of Guinea, Electricité de Guinée (EDG) has signed a contract with Aggreko for the temporary power supplier to provide a 50 MW package to help alleviate power shortages currently affecting the capital Conakry.

The installation will bring additional capacity to the local grid and ensure a more robust and reliable power supply is delivered to the commercial heart of the country to help keep business and industry up and running and keep the lights on in the city.

"We are happy to be assisting EDG, the national utility of Guinea in this important project,” Christophe Jacquin, managing director, Aggreko North and West Africa, says.

“The Aggreko power plant will provide us with the time and space needed to deal with the power supply issues affecting the capital,” Nava Touré, managing director, Electricité de Guinée, says.
