The need for fast-track capacity is often due to the inadequacy of an existing supply. Such situations can be driven by the failure of a power plant, natural disaster, weather phenomenon, or some other unforeseen catastrophe. APR Energy’s power systems are the most efficient solution for a fast-track capacity application because their modular design has been custom engineered for rapid mobilization and start-up.
In some cases, utilities can also face a significant energy shortage due to reduced electricity imports from a neighboring country. This reduction of imported energy can come from a cross-border technical failure or an unplanned contractual adjustment. In either case, customers need additional power quickly either for base load, continuous operation, or for emergency stand-by if they are able to control the situation through load management.
