USP&E is pleased to announce that we have completed construction of our newest Containerized HFO Power Plant in Marampa, Sierra Leone, Africa. This 12.9 MW power plant is now fully operational and powering a productive iron mine in Sierra Leone.
The entire USP&E Global team worked together to successfully complete the power plant on time and on budget to the client’s satisfaction. Our team of experienced engineers and technicians achieved exceptional results. As a result, USP&E was awarded a five-year operations and maintenance contract.
“We are thrilled with our results, but even more so with the overall success of our partnership with our client. It took everything we had and more to get this done and are very grateful for the work,” said Jason Biermeier, COO/Executive VP of USP&E.
Generators 7 and 8 arrive on site, bringing total capacity to 12.8 MW!
With generators 5 and 6, power generation capacity reaches 9.6 MW.
We’re on a roll now. HFO Generators 3 and 4 have arrived on-site, bringing the total electricity generation capacity to 6.4 MW. Supporting equipment is starting to arrive as well. The HFO Purifying container was also placed onto its pad yesterday.
The first two of our many (92) containers have arrived in port in Freetown, Sierra Leone, Africa. Now, they just have to be loaded onto trucks so they can make the 2 hour journey to the construction site.
Dirt and foundation work continues in Sierra Leone. The great thing about our containerized generators and equipment is that there is no further construction required. Once these concrete and steel bases are ready then our equipment goes on top. Container-by-container a complete power plant quickly emerges.
