Aggreko Extends Generation Capacity in Bali to 170 MW

BALI, Indonesia, March 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --



Temporary  power  provider  will  meet  23  per  cent  of  Bali's  total  electricity  demand

Aggreko, the world leader in the provision of temporary power generation and temperature control services, today announced a 45 MW expansion to its power projects in Bali. The announcement comes on the back of successful re-tendering for the 125 MW of capacity it already delivers to the city, bringing Aggreko's total power output to 170 MW.

The combined 170 MW of capacity will meet 23 per cent of total electricity demand in Bali, injecting vital power into the local grid and maintaining essential infrastructure and services that drive the tourism industry. The additional capacity comes on line at a critical time as the demand increases and the ability to meet the demand is unfortunately limited by the existing infrastructure.  

With a booming economy and demand for energy increasing steadily by approximately 9.75 per cent each year, the 45 MW capacity expansion was commissioned in Pesanggaran (near the Bali city centre) to bolster the existing power infrastructure and ensure the continued strong performance of the region's tourism industry. The project win sees Aggreko continue its positive relationship with Indonesia Power subsidiary PT Cogindo Daya Bersama, having first worked together to install 125 MW of capacity in Pemaron (in the northern area of Bali) in 2010.

"With Bali attracting an estimated 300,000 visitors each month, tourism is vital to the local community's economic prosperity," said Mangampin Saragi, President Director of PT Cogindo Daya Bersama. "The addition of 45 MW into the grid reflects our desire to strengthen the region's energy infrastructure and ensure Bali remains an attractive destination. We are committed to driving consistent and reliable power supply, and the decision to appoint Aggreko for this project reflects the strong working relationship and trust we have developed over the last 4 years."

"We are excited to be continuing our work with PT Cogindo Daya Bersama," said Debajit Das, Regional Director - APAC (Asia Pacific) for Aggreko. "We have demonstrated the flexibility of Aggreko's service by offering 170 MW of capacity across two separate locations in Bali. Our successful re-tender and appointment for the 45 MW expansion project also reflect our ability to help customers and utilities overcome roadblocks by eliminating power limitations in a way that makes business sense."

Aggreko provides power and temperature control solutions to customers who need them either very quickly, or for a short or indeterminate length of time. Examples would be the supply of power to an industrial site which needs to service its permanent power supply, supplying a whole city in times of power shortage, or providing a major sporting event with power and cooling systems. We serve our customers either through our 202 service centres, which we call the Local business, or globally through our Power Projects business.

In the Local business, which accounts for about half of our revenues, we hire our equipment to customers, who then operate it for themselves, although we retain responsibility for servicing and maintaining it. In the Power Projects business, which also accounts for about half of our revenues, we operate as a power producer. We install and operate power plants and we charge our customers both for providing the generating capacity, and for the electricity we produce. We design and manufacture equipment specifically for these requirements in our factory in Dumbarton, Scotland.

Recent customers include the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, the Ryder Cup and Cirque du Soleil and the power utilities in over 50 countries including the UK, France, Ivory Coast, Mozambique, Indonesia, Bangladesh, Argentina, Venezuela, Chile, Brazil and the USA.

In 2013 we fulfilled almost 48,000 customers' assignments and 72% of those who responded to our research gave us a recommendation of 9 or 10 out of 10.
