Alaaqa Global plans to be No1 rental power by 2020
Altaaqa Global CAT Rental Power has opened a new office in Nairobi, Kenya to serve the East Africa territory, catering to several countries including Tanzania, , Uganda, Kenya, Somalia and Ethiopia.
Based in Dubai, Altaaqa Global has the stated aim of becoming the leading and most preferred temporary power solutions provider before year 2020.
Peter den Boogert, general manager of Altaaqa Global, says that business activities in the East Africa region are flourishing, and with economies thriving there is an increased demand for power.
“At Altaaqa Global, our objective is to be on the ground as quickly as possible when customers require our energy solutions, and our new branch will enable us to reach this region faster than before. We realize that our industry is driven by emergency needs and hard deadlines, but uses equipment that requires substantial lead times to acquire.
“With the combined fleet of our sister company in Saudi Arabia, Altaaqa Global has approximately 1,400 MW of rental power readily available so that we can focus our efforts on rapid deployment and customer satisfaction.”
The company will also provide environmental and social programs in East Africa, through corporate social responsibility initiatives.
As the company expands, it plans to heavily invest in human resources, further improve its business processes, and expand and diversify the fleet of CAT power generators.
The company now has the capability to provide power plants running on various fuel, such as piped natural gas (PNG), liquefied petroleum gas (LPG), compressed natural gas (CNG), liquefied natural gas (LNG), flare gas, diesel, dual-fuel (70% gas and 30% diesel), and soon, heavy fuel oil (HFO).
