APR Energy, a global leader in fast-track power solutions, said it had commissioned its new gas turbine power plant in Egypt. The plant is expected to support development of a large-scale industrial complex being built for the Egyptian Ethylene and Derivatives Company (ETHYDCO), a manufacturer and leading provider of value-creating plastics and rubber products, reported PR Newswire. The plant is to operate for a minimum of 12 months.
ETHYDCO Chairman, Abd-el Rahman Zeid, said that the plant was a major project for Egypt’s growing industrial sector and expressed his pleasure for having APR Energy as a power generation partner. “Due to our need for a reliable and cost-efficient natural gas solution, their mobile gas turbines were the best fit to meet our critical electricity needs,” he added.
Energy Global reported that APR Energy has handled all design, installation, and commissioning work for the plant, and will continue to manage all ongoing operation and maintenance.
