APR Energy, a global leader in fast-track power solutions, has announced that it has commissioned a 20-MW expansion of its power plant in Myanmar, providing Myanmar Electric Power Enterprise with a guaranteed minimum of 102 MW of power generation.
Based in Kyaukse, in the Mandalay region, the expanded power plant is one of the largest thermal plants in Myanmar, providing electricity to over six million people. It features the newest generation CAT low-emission mobile gas power modules and runs on Myanmar’s indigenous, clean burning natural gas. APR Energy’s plant has been in operation since May 2014.
Clive Turton, Managing Director – Asia Pacific, APR Energy, said: “Expanding contracts is an important part of APR Energy’s strategy and business model, together with new contracts and renewals. The added capacity at our Myanmar plant follows our previously announced expansion in Indonesia earlier this year, and is the result of growing regional demand and the high level of service we provide.”
