“This is the largest single award in the history of APR Energy, and it is the result of having the best people and the best technology in our industry. I couldn’t be prouder of our team,” said Chairman and Chief Executive Officer John Campion.
“We also want to thank the Ministry of Energy and Minerals for their continued confidence in our ability to provide reliable power for the people and businesses of Argentina,” Campion said. “Argentina has been a key customer for us for many years, and we are honored to receive the largest share of generating capacity awarded to an international company. We look forward to the opportunity to continue to provide Argentina with power well into the next decade.”
