By Sarah Ann McCay30 June 2012
APR Energy (APR) continues to expand its Middle East reach with the signing of a new 60MW contract in Yemen. The contract is the firm's second signing in the region in the last four months.
The Yemen agreement will see APR supply diesel engines to address anticipated supply shortages in the country through the latter half of 2014.
According to John Campion, CEO of APR, the recent Yemen win is further evidence of APR's hub strategy delivering tangible results. The company opened its Middle East hub in Dubai in early 2012 and has already signed contracts for more than 200MW from the region.
APR is enjoying strong growth in 2012. The temporary energy provider has signed new contracts for 344MW and contract renewals of 356MW, and now holds a backlog of more than 9,000 MW-months.
