Glasgow-based company Aggreko has entered into a ten year deal to deliver solar-diesel hybrid power to Nevsun in Eritrea, a northeastern African country.

Under the contract, Aggreko will supply 22MW of diesel and 7.5MW of solar-generated power to the copper and zinc operations of Nevsun.

Aggreko's chief executive officer (CEO) Chris Weston said: “We’re delighted to be chosen by Nevsun to power their mining operations in Eritrea.

“Technology never stands still, and neither does Aggreko. Our mobile, modular power enables us to make a massive difference to the communities and industries we serve, and our solar-diesel hybrid offering is an example of an innovation that brings cost-effective, reliable, uninterrupted power with additional fuel flexibility to customers.”

Aggreko claims that its solar-diesel hybrid power package is effective to provide uninterrupted power round the clock that combines cost-effectiveness and green renewable energy.

"Our solar-diesel hybrid offering is an example of an innovation that brings cost-effective, reliable, uninterrupted power."

The hybrid programme was developed using the latest diesel generators at its manufacturing and technology centre located in Dumbarton, Scotland.
