APR on track due to new contracts

London-listed temporary power provider APR Energy yesterday said it had made a “strong start to 2014” with 359 megawatts of contract extensions including a large diesel project in Libya and 142MW of new contract wins in Myanmar and the South Pacific. APR bought General Electric’s power rental business late last year and said yesterday it continues to develop opportunities through the partnership. Shares in the firm closed down 2.4 per cent at 768p.
