APR Energy Hosts Acting US Ambassador At Its Botswana Power Plant

GABORONE, Botswana, Jan. 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- During his recent trip to Francistown, the Charge d'Affaires and Acting US Ambassador, Michael Murphy of the U.S. Embassy Gaborone, Botswana took the opportunity to visit APR Energy's 70MW power plant site. The Acting Ambassador toured the facility as part of his campaign to promote trade and commercial ties between Botswana and the United States. During his visit, Mr. Murphy met with APR Energy's plant management to discuss the Company's day-to-day operations in Botswana as well as APR Energy's other power plant facilities around the globe.

"APR Energy's 70MW facility in Francistown is a key component of Botswana's power generation infrastructure, filling a critical gap that provides reliable electricity to power the country's development," said Mr. Murphy.  "Moreover, APR's expanding presence in Botswana is indicative of the opportunity to American firms presented by this country's steady growth trajectory in the power sector and more broadly across the economy." 

This visit is following the recent extension of APR Energy's power contract with the Botswana Power Corporation (BPC), the local national electrical utility. APR Energy has been operating successfully the turnkey diesel power plant for BPC since late 2009, when it was engaged to counteract "electricity shortages driven by demand growth and supply constraints in the Southern Africa region."

The site, located just outside of Francistown, Botswana is one of five turnkey projects that APR Energy currently is operating in Africa, totaling over 200MW of installed power capacity by APR Energy on the continent.

Photos of Mr. Murphy's visit to APR Energy's power plant site in Botswana are available on the APR Energy website here:
