Logistical operation included transporting specialised equipment from Dubai to Doha.

The UAE-based Manlift Power, dealing in temporary power projects, has announced its largest power supply so far – the delivery of 27MW (Prime) of temporary power – to the Gulf Cement Company (GCC), Qatar, within 10 days.

Manlift installed 27 Cummins 1250kVA Powerbox units, synchronised into a central power package, producing 27MW of power, running at 6.6kV. The award of this contract is an extension of the 17MW temporary power project that Manlift Power had been operating since May 30, 2009, for the GCC in Qatar.

According to Manlift, the first tranche of power was fully operational on April 2. The logistical operation included transporting specialised equipment from Manlift’s head office in Dubai, to Doha, while ensuring that the tight timeframes and specific production requirements requested by the client were met.

Manlift reported that it is the sole power supplier to the GCC plant, which reportedly has a capacity of producing in excess of 6000 tonnes of cement every day.

David King, General Manager, Manlift Power, Qatar, said: “This project is a true example of the high levels of professionalism and knowledge that we offer our clients. The GCC project highlights our tremendous capabilities for delivering multi-megawatt international power projects, under tight time and logistic constraints. I’m very proud of the Manlift Power team, both here in Qatar, and in Dubai, and we look forward to a fantastic extended relationship with the GCC.”

Adam Ashcroft, Regional Director, Manlift Power, added: “Building upon our previous successful performance in Qatar for GCC, we are delighted to have successfully undertaken this extended contract. Manlift has an impressive proven track record of supplying turnkey temporary power solutions, and is fast becoming the chosen supplier in the region for both single unit and multi-megawatt rental projects.”

Manlift Power, Manlift Group, supplier of access platforms and power generators for sales and rentals, is a joint venture between local shareholders and a European rentals company. It operates alongside Manlift Middle East.
