“We are proud to support Gibraltar during its current power shortage and consider this project a testament of Energy International’s core values of providing clients worldwide with the fast, reliable, effective solutions they need to meet their unique energy needs,” said Edgar Ahumada, EI’s onsite project manager.

Specifically, EI will provide 15 MW (with the operational option to increase to 20MW) of baseload temporary electrical power using four dual-fuel, portable, rental turbines generating sets (along with an additional turbine as back-up) at the northwestern end of the North Mole, away from residential areas. The units operate with proven technology and incorporate “SoLo Nox Low Emission Technology,” which is more environmentally friendly than the diesel engine technology that has been used in Gibraltar for the past 80 years. The two-year agreement includes an option to extend to three years.
