Aggreko to supply 200MW of power in Zimbabwe

By Helen Wright19 April 2016

Temporary power provider Aggreko has signed a three-year contract with Zimbabwe Electricity Supply Authority (ZESA) to supply 200MW of diesel-fuelled power.

Aggreko said its customer was Sakunda Holdings, which has been awarded a contract with the ultimate customer, ZESA. It said Sakunda was responsible for the provision of fuel under the terms of its contract with ZESA.

Aggreko said the contract would become effective once certain conditions are satisfied.

Chief executive Chris Weston said, "We are pleased with the award of this important contract. Our operational flexibility and our ability to deploy large amounts of equipment at short-notice, in particular our fuel efficient engines, was critical to this award.

"We look forward to supporting Sakunda and ultimately ZESA with their power needs over the coming years."
