APR Energy plc and Pratt & Whitney Power Systems (PWPS) have announced a strategic partnership to increase the availability of mobile turbines for temporary power solutions. This partnership has already facilitated an APR order of 100MW on a flexible delivery schedule.
Under the terms of the global agreement, APR Energy becomes the exclusive provider of Pratt & Whitney's FT8 MOBILEPAC rental power solutions. In addition, APR will benefit from a 12-month warranty, a five-year service agreement and access to dedicated global support from PWPS, including project management, engineering and aftermarket resources.
PWPS will refer temporary power inquiries to APR and will promote APR across a range of media, including trade fairs, advertising and promotions. Under this exclusive agreement PWPS will not sell or lease FT8 gas turbines to any other temporary power rental provider.
Pratt & Whitney's FT8 MOBILEPAC was used to help APR provide much-needed temporary power in Japan following the recent tsunami, and its modularized design allows for rapid deployment and installation as well as dual fuel flexibility and remote starting capabilities.
This partnership announcement follows APR Energy's recent similar global agreement with Caterpillar Inc. and Cat dealer Ring Power.
