Clarke Energy has secured its first power plant sale in Algeria. Algeria has enormous gas reserves and has historically utilised large gas turbines for generating power or diesel fuelled generators in more remote locations.

In a separate deal Clarke Energy has also secured its first sales for a 1mW natural gas-fuelled captive power plant at Plastpaper’s industrial plastic goods production facility in the city of Oran. The project will showcase how GE’s gas engines are a cost-effective alternative to diesel generators for grid support and industrial energy security. This will operate generating stable reliable electricity for the facility and will prevent micro disturbances from the local electricity grid affecting the plastics extrusion process.

Clarke Energy’s Didier Lartigue stated, “We are delighted to have secured our first order in Algeria. This project will demonstrate the reliability and efficiency of gas-fuelled distributed generation in the Algerian market.”
