SUPREME Group, a leader in the provision of end-to-end supply chain solutions in challenging environments, has been awarded a contract to provide catering, cleaning, laundry and security services for Mongolia's first wind farm project. The contract was awarded by Clean Energy, a joint venture between Newcom Group, General Electric (GE), European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) and Netherlands Development Bank (FMO).
Located 70km south of Ulaanbaatar, the Salkhit Wind Farm is a landmark project established by the private sector with support from the Mongolian Government and international development organizations. The project aims to improve living conditions in Mongolia through production of electricity by a local, clean and renewable energy resource. The 50MW facility uses 31 GE turbines and will annually offset around 180,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide emission, reduce coal usage by 122,000 tonnes and save 1.6 million tonnes of fresh water. Power generated by the project will service customers connected to the central grid in Mongolia - a country in which energy demand has been increasing by 7% annually over the past few years.
"The wind farm is a flagship development for Mongolia's renewable energy sector and we are delighted to have the opportunity to work with Clean Energy on this project, especially as sustainability is one of our core values," says Supreme Group principal Stephen Orenstein. "We are committed to local economic development and in particular to national sourcing and creating local employment opportunities, so we have hired a team of local employees and Mongolian suppliers to work with us as part of our Mongolia First Program. Since commencing operations in Mongolia in 2012, we have focused on providing world-class support services to help further develop the Mongolian mining and energy industry."
Supreme provides end-to-end supply chain, construction and site service solutions in Mongolia, including the South Gobi region, with specialized skills in construction, food supply and site services. In addition to the Clean Energy project, Supreme also provides food supply and camp services to workers in a road construction camp in the South Gobi Desert - a contract awarded by one of Mongolia's largest industrial holding companies.
