Altaaqa Global’s Rental Gas Power Plants in Cameroon Go Live

Completed in just 21 days and boasting a combined capacity of 50 MW, the temporary gas power plants provide the country with a new reliable and sustainable source of power.

On April 28, Altaaqa Global’s temporary natural gas power plants, with a joint capacity of 50 MW, were inaugurated at the Logbaba power plant site in Douala, Cameroon. The ceremony was attended by Dr Atangana Kouna Basile, Cameroon’s Minister of Water Resources and Energy, members of the government, and senior executives from Eneo Cameroon S.A. – the country’s integrated utility company – and Gaz du Cameroun (GDC), a wholly owned subsidiary of Victoria Oil & Gas (VOG). The rental gas power plants were installed and commissioned within just 21 days from the arrival of the equipment at the intended power plant sites.

Collaborative Business Model

The successful completion of the temporary gas power plants stands as a testament to the viability of a synergetic business model featuring contributions from the government, the utility company, the fuel supplier and the equipment provider. The Cameroonian government and Eneo were the clients in this particular project, with Altaaqa Global providing the power generation equipment and taking responsibility for importing and installing the generators at the Logbaba and Ndokoti (Bassa) sites, while GDC supplied the gas to the rental gas power stations at both sites.

Against this backdrop, Peter den Boogert, CEO of Altaaqa Global, said: “We are very proud to have been involved in this project, and to have collaborated with Cameroon’s government, Eneo and GDC. Altaaqa Global is greatly honored to have contributed to Cameroon’s national energy strategy, and to have had the chance to promote the greater good of the Cameroonian nation. The success of this project proves that creating synergy among entities that value service and integrity above their own interests means that anything can be achieved. Here, we have witnessed that as a whole we are greater than the sum of our parts”

The business model also proved to be economically beneficial to the service providers, being referred to as “a true game-changer” by Kevin Foo, CEO of VOG, who continued: “[Through the agreement with Eneo] We have secured a major near-term user of gas for our operations in Cameroon, and we are now becoming an active part of the equation in Cameroon’s energy sector.”

Environmentally Friendly Technology

In addition to the collaborative business model that led to its successful completion, the project can also boast of its environmental stewardship, with the power plants being run on natural gas.

Altaaqa Global installed state-of-the-art gas engine generators at both sites to ensure that the power plants are not only dependable, but also environmentally friendly. In recognition of international emission requirements, which mandate the level of NOx emissions of equipment and industrial operations, Altaaqa Global engineered its gas generators so that an emissions threshold of 250 mg/Nm3 is not exceeded – even without after-treatment.

Speaking on the sustainability of the project, Majid Zahid, Strategic Accounts Director of Altaaqa Global, said: “Our temporary gas power plant systems meet the requirements of worldwide emissions standards and do not harm the environment. These rental gas plants are designed for performance and reliability, while simultaneously being more environmentally friendly compared to systems running on other fuels. Because the generators run on natural gas, they do not require expensive after-treatment, therefore making them more economical to operate owing to more cost-effective fuel prices.” He added that gas systems were more flexible in terms of fuel usage, and would retain their efficiencies even with different fuel varieties.

Cameroon’s Road to Economic Development

Electricity is vital to ensuring the on-going development of economies and industries – especially in emerging countries such as Cameroon. With the successful completion of these temporary gas power plants, the entire country will be provided with a reliable and sustainable source of electricity that will power Cameroon as it works to enhance its infrastructure and construct additional facilities to support its industries.

In this context, Joel Nana Kontchou, CEO of Eneo, said, “This project addresses the shortage in the country’s electricity supply that has been caused by a strong increase in demand, combined with a lack of a reserve in the electricity infrastructure. We are pleased to work with GDC and Altaaqa: Two companies that share our deep commitment to responding to Cameroon’s critical infrastructure needs.”

Cameroon’s economy has weathered the drop in prices among its principal exports – petroleum, cocoa, coffee and cotton – and has remained largely stable in recent years. In 2013, its GDP growth reached 4.9%, and experts predict that, so long as there are strong performances from the construction, oil & gas, transport, telecommunication and hospitality sectors, it will remain at around that level through 2015. Cameroon’s government has been working to promote growth and employment in the country through continuous development of energy, transportation and telecommunications infrastructure, and is also eager to modernize the country’s production equipment and processes – particularly in the agricultural and manufacturing sectors.

Altaaqa Global emerged victorious amidst a formidable line-up of nominees, including ETA Engineering, Arabian MEP Contracting, Mercury MENA, AECOM, and ALEMCO. Altaaqa bested a stellar pool of shortlisted companies, including Arabian MEP Contracting and SEMCO.

The Health and Safety Initiative of the Year is awarded to a company that excels in maintaining or improving upon health and safety standards on its project sites, or which has introduced any specific training or awareness initiative. According to the esteemed panel of judges, with its entry, titled “Providing Adequate Security in Hostile Environments”, Altaaqa Global was able to demonstrate that through careful planning of project risk assessment, it is possible to ensure lives are protected, even in the face of highly demanding deliverables.

Commenting on the company’s latest feat, Peter den Boogert, General Manager of Altaaqa Global, said, “We are proud yet humbled to be recognized by one of the most credible and respected publications in the region. This award is certainly dedicated to the hardworking men and women of Altaaqa Global, who brave security instability and the harshest weather conditions in the areas where our company operates. We, furthermore, share this recognition with the local engineers and security and HSE agencies that helped our in-house teams maintain the highest standard of safety and environmental stewardship in our power plant sites.”

On the other hand, the Specialist Contractor of the Year Award is given to a company that played a pivotal role in the MEP sector’s ongoing development, and that promotes sustainability and cost-effectiveness, helping the MEP sector benchmark itself globally. Bannering its historic 22-day completion of a 95 MW power plant in Al-Kharj, Saudi Arabia, the judges were convinced that Altaaqa showed that with a high level of coordination and planning, and by having what the judges dubbed as “nerves of steel”, it can deliver on highly challenging requirements.

Altaaqa Global achieves high commendation at UK awards

The company was highly commended for the Energy Excellence Award at the 2014 Energy Institute Awards, London, UK

Altaaqa Global - Energy Excellence Award - Highly Commended - Energy Institute Awards London

Altaaqa Global, the global provider of temporary power solutions, was highly commended for the Energy Excellence Award for its 23-day installation of a 54 MW power plant in Aden, Yemen, at the 2014 Energy Institute Awards held on November 13 at the Sheraton Park Lane, London, UK. With its entry, titled “Rebuilding a War-Torn Nation”, Altaaqa Global was shortlisted for the accolade among a stellar pool of nominees, including the International Association of Oil and Gas Producers, the UK Ministry of Defence, and Open Energi and Aggregate Industries.

The Energy Excellence Award is intended to give recognition to an outstanding feat in the energy industry, bannering fresh thinking and strategic and innovative problem solving. To be qualified for the award, a company or a project’s attainment should have the greatest impact on all parts of the industry. As the organizers put it, the award spans all the other categories, and represents the pinnacle of achievements in the energy industry.
Commenting from the event, Peter den Boogert, General Manager of Altaaqa Global, said, “We are proud yet humbled to be recognized by the highest energy body in the UK. This recognition is a testament to the hard work that the men and women of Altaaqa Global have given to the project, braving security instability and the harshest weather conditions. We, furthermore, extend our sincerest gratitude to the local Yemeni engineers that joined us in completing this historic project.”

Majid Zahid, Strategic Accounts Director of Altaaqa Global, attributed the achievement to the people of Aden, Yemen. “We share this distinction with the people of Yemen, including the country’s leadership, who trusted us with providing the much needed electricity as they were rebuilding their nation. This project met myriad challenges, but we drew the strength and tenacity to go on from their faith and hope. Moreover, this project would not have been as meaningful without the positive response that the people of Yemen have shown towards our energy conservation and efficient usage campaigns.”

Steven Meyrick, Board Representative of Altaaqa Global, said that this recognition would further encourage the company to improve on its processes and take on projects that push the envelope of engineering ingenuity. “This high commendation from the Energy Institute substantiates the progressive steps that Altaaqa Global has been taking towards achieving the highly ambitious goals that we have set for ourselves. We will continue to challenge ourselves in every project that we do and to build on the innovation that we have introduced in the past.”

Altaaqa Global’s 54 MW project in Aden, Yemen was installed and completed as the country was recovering from the effects of the Arab Spring. Built in a mere 23 days, the temporary power plant was able to supply electricity to more than half a million people. The success of the project prompted the government of Yemen to add 50 MW to the existing installation, bringing the total capacity of the power station to 104 MW.

Altaaqa Global Opens Office in Southern Africa

Dubai-based Altaaqa Global CAT Rental Power, a global provider of temporary power solutions, has recently opened a new branch in Johannesburg that will cater to several countries in Southern Africa, including the Republic of South Africa, Angola, Botswana, Mozambique, Madagascar, Malawi, Namibia, Zambia and Zimbabwe.

 

The new Johannesburg office will serve as a hub for Altaaqa Global’s sales and operations in the Southern African region

Altaaqa Global will bring its expertise, innovative technologies, industry-proven reliability and rapid deployment to the region, which is largely known for its thriving oil and gas, industrial manufacturing, and mineral and coal mining industries. Peter den Boogert, General Manager of Altaaqa Global, said that we would provide Southern Africa with the most advanced power plant packaged systems, remote monitoring, and fuel-efficient gas, diesel or dual-fuel-powered generators. “Altaaqa Global and its sister company in Saudi Arabia have a total combined fleet of 1,400 MW rental power plant generation readily available to serve the Southern African region.”

One of the flagship innovations that Altaaqa Global will offer, he added, was the flexible operational mode that can switch from island to grid mode in just seconds. Furthermore, Altaaqa Global’s energy rental dynamic package allows its power plants to hook directly to the grid without the need for a substation.

The global outlook for the rental power industry has been encouraging, and Steven Meyrick, Board Representative of Altaaqa Global, sees merit in capitalizing on it through strategic market and geographic expansion. “With this recent feat, we believe that we are on our way to fulfilling, even exceeding, the highly ambitious objectives we set at the launch of our company in 2012.” Meyrick added that Altaaqa Global would continue to pursue multi-megawatt independent power projects (IPP) in various industries, in addition to heavily investing in human resources, process and business optimization, and product expansion.

In line with its avowed corporate social responsibility programs that aim to alleviate the social needs of its immediate environs, Altaaqa Global will also continue to provide job opportunities, extend immediate assistance for school children, and conduct educational campaigns on energy conservation and environmental stewardship in Southern Africa. Meyrick continued, “One of the pillars of our sustainable business model is employing and training local professionals in areas where we operate, and we are excited to extend that commitment to Southern Africa.”

Majid Zahid, Strategic Accounts Director of Altaaqa Global, said, “Southern Africa has a promising economic outlook within the energy, engineering, production, oil and gas, and mining sectors, and we are delighted to open our new office in Africa to provide our wide range of highly innovative interim power plants. We are determined to serve various industries, such as oil and gas, petrochemicals, mining, electric power utilities, industrial manufacturing and maritime.”

Altaaqa Global has been aggressively making inroads into the African market with the opening of branch offices in several key locations in the continent. “We have also recently opened an office in East Africa,” said Den Boogert, “and have appointed a highly competent management team to oversee our African operations.” He shared the information that Hendrick Mtemeri, a power distribution veteran with more than 20 years of experience in the power utility industry, has been appointed as the Regional Director for the entire Sub-Saharan region, and Paul Heyns, a power equipment engineering expert based in Pretoria, and Oduor Omolo, power generation professional based in Nairobi, have been appointed as Sales Managers for Southern Africa and East Africa, respectively. “Under their leadership, we will reinforce our presence in Africa and ensure that we stay close with our customers.”

The economy of Southern Africa is largely driven by the precious stone, mineral and coal mining industry. The Republic of South Africa, a leading economy in the Southern African region, is ranked as an upper-middle income economy by the World Bank, and is touted to be the largest African economy ahead of Nigeria. Though still reeling from the effects of its recent economic setbacks, the African Economic Outlook expects South Africa’s economy to moderately accelerate in 2014. Angola’s economy, after experiencing slow growth due to the recent oil and financial crises, is also predicted to be on the rebound, expected to grow by 7.8% in 2014. Furthermore, Mozambique’s economy is forecast to maintain its upward trend, predicted to grow by 8% in 2014. Agriculture, manufacturing, oil and gas, in addition to mineral and coal mining, significantly contribute to the countries’ GDP, as well as to their employment rates.

وأضاف ستيفن ميريك المندوب عن مجلس إدارة شركة الطاقة جلوبال قائلاً “إننا ملتزمون دائماً بتوفير حلول الطاقة المؤقتة الفريدة في أي مكان في العالم. ويدرك كل موظف أن مئات الملايين من البشر يعتمدون علينا، وتلك هي ماهية عملنا، توفير الخدمة للبشر. إن منظمتنا تتجاوز نموذج تأجير الطاقة العادي، فنحن لا نوفر مجرد أجهزة توليد للطاقة، بل إننا نوفر التطور والأمل والاستدامة للمجتمعات والشركات وللدول كاملة من خلال حلول الطاقة التي نوفرها. وبغض النظر عن مدى تعقيد المشكلات التي يواجهها العميل، نملك دائماً الحلول المناسبة التي تساعده على التغلب على تلك المشكلات، كما أننا على استعداد دائمًا لتقديم يد العون.”

يقول ماجد الزاهد، مدير الحسابات الاستراتيجية في شركة الطاقة جلوبال “يُظهر هذا الإنجاز قدرة الشركة على توفير حلول الطاقة الفعالة والمتميزة بالكفاءة. وغالبًا ما يوفر شركاؤنا الاستراتيجيون في شركة Caterpillar، بالإضافة إلى فريق المهندسين لدينا، أحدث المعدات والحلول الإبداعية التي لا تستطيع أن تضاهيها أي شركة أخرى تعمل في مجال تأجير الطاقة. وتعد المحطة التي قمنا بتركيبها في عمان، بقدرة 24 ميجا وات خلال 96 ساعة فقط، بالإضافة إلى محطة الطاقة التي قمنا بتركيبها في اليمن ولم يستغرق بناؤها إلا 23 يومًا، بمثابة أرقام قياسية جديدة في مجال الطاقة.”
