Aqua Power’s Advantages

Plant Relocations

Relocating new but unused (zero hour) power plants from major international companies (e.g. Veolia) operating in developed markets to Africa making installation costs much more affordable whilst ensuring reliability.

Strong Off-Takers

Working with the leading industrial companies (e.g. Dangote, AngloGold Ashanti) and energy utilities (e.g. Kenya Power & Lighting Company, Geothermal Development Corporation, KenGen) to provide win-win energy off-take solutions.

Focus on Base Load

Focus on non-intermittent renewable energy technologies (e.g. Geothermal, Biomass, Hydro) that ensure least cost and reliable energy to power mission critical projects that operate 24/7 and are the backbone of our clients operations. Providing reliable and affordable base load power guarantees high capacity utilisation and lower project risks with over 95% availability/dispatch.

Speed of Execution

Proven ability to fast track project delivery both in terms of security licensing/approvals and project execution. Aqua Power focuses on rapid deployment building energy and energy related infrastructure from start to finish in record time (e.g, 45MW Mtwara Modular Gas to Power Plant built in 7 months).

ESG Principles

Aqua Power’s projects have a strong positive and immediate environmental footprint working tirelessly to provide decarbonisation solutions whilst maintaining affordability and reliability. For example, our energy projects have replaced diesel with cleaner natural gas reducing both the cost and carbon footprint for our clients. Our baseload renewable energy projects (Geothermal, Biomass and Hydro) likewise provide a solution for decarbonisation in addition to being least cost.

Technical Partnerships

Aqua Power develops strong working relationships with Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) providing leading technology solutions in the energy sector who are best in class. For example, Aqua Power was the first to deploy Solar Turbines Titan 130 Gas Turbine Generators (GTGs) in Tanzania; we are working to install the first ever Small Scale LNG Plant in Ghana and are the first mover in bringing KAPSOM Green Hydrogen Technology to Africa.

Geographical Presence

Strong footprint across Sub Saharan Africa with operations and active projects in Kenya, Tanzania, Mozambique, Ghana, Nigeria and São Tomé and Príncipe. Aqua Power has a deep knowledge of Africa working towards providing the leading companies on the continent with energy solutions that secure Africa’s future growing GDP, Jobs and Exports.
