Benin: Aggreko supplies additional power

Issue 330 - 16 Sep 2016 | 1 minute read

Aggreko announced on 5 September it had won a one-year contract to supply 100MW of power at the Maria Gléta site. The power will be generated from Addgas, a technology that substitutes a significant portion of diesel fuel with natural gas. An Aggreko spokeswoman told African Energy its existing 50MW of capacity would be upgraded to Addgas and an additional 50MW with the Addgas option would be added, making 100MW in total. “This will offer a more flexible, cheaper kWh,” she said.
