The company said that the new office will cater to Tanzania, Rwanda, Burundi, Uganda, Kenya, Somalia, Ethiopia, Sudan, South Sudan, Djibouti and Eritrea for sales and operations.

Peter den Boogert, general manager of Altaaqa Global, said, “The business activities in the East Africa region are flourishing and the economy has been thriving throughout recent years, resulting in an increased demand for power. At Altaaqa Global, our objective is to be on the ground as quickly as possible when customers require our energy solutions, and our new branch will enable us to reach this region faster than before.”

With the combined fleet of its sister company in Saudi Arabia, Altaaqa Global has approximately 1,400MW of rental power readily available, allowing the company to focus on rapid deployment and customer satisfaction, added den Boogert.

Steven Meyrick, board representative of Altaaqa Global, said that this expansion is part of the company’s vision to be the leading and preferred temporary power solutions provider before 2020.

He added that Altaaqa Global plans to diversify its fleet of CAT power generators.

”We now have the capability to provide power plants running on various fuel, such as piped natural gas (PNG), liquefied petroleum gas (LPG), compressed natural gas (CNG), liquefied natural gas (LNG), flare gas, diesel, dual-fuel (70 per cent gas and 30 per cent diesel), and, very soon, heavy fuel oil (HFO),” said Meyrick.

According to the company, East Africa has a promising economic outlook within the energy and engineering sectors, and are keen to serve various industries, such as oil and gas, petrochemicals, mining, electric power utilities, industrial manufacturing and maritime.

With Kenya registering five per cent to seven per cent year-on-year growth and nations like Tanzania, Somalia, Uganda and South Sudan expected to make inroads into economoc stability, Altaaqa Global has reckoned that East Africa is now being regarded as an important supplier to different markets globally.
