Utility Rural Electrification

Energizing the rural areas and agricultural locations

Altaaqa Global provides support to the rural electrification governments and various non-government organizations to bring power to the grass-root level. From seasonal peak demand during summer months in the country side of the Sultanate of Oman to the farthest provincial location in South Asia, Altaaqa Global brings electricity to rural communities, farms and agricultural areas around the world.

In local rural communities, Altaaqa Global provides electricity where power infrastructure is either unavailable or inadequate. We help governments and non-governmental organizations to build power infrastructure in very remote areas and in the countryside.

Typical applications and scenarios when renting mobile temporary power plant for rural electrification authorities:

  • Isolated rural communities with no electrification system
  • Inadequate transmission lines going to rural areas
  • Unavailable distribution network in dispersed communities
  • Stop-gap electric power supply for utility distribution companies
  • Emergency generation needed as a result of a power plant failure cause by a natural disaster
  • Natural disasters or weather phenomena: droughts affecting dam water levels, hurricanes devastating coal power plant facilities, sustained downpours of rain leading to flooding within a power plant which destroys its facilities, or earthquakes almost reducing a power plant to rubble
  • When raw materials like coal and gas are in chronic short supply because of market forces or unexpected sudden scarcity
  • A power plant is still being commissioned or constructed
  • An old power plant in desperate need of maintenance
  • A back-up or standby temporary power plant during upgrade or any kind of shutdown
  • Peak shaving during the summer or winter peak seasons
  • Supplementary power to handle unforeseen spikes in demand
  • Supplementary power reacting to seasonal demand
  • Load shedding and power cuts
  • Chronic power shortages because installed capacity could not attain its optimum power generation
  • Ongoing planned maintenance, shutdown or upgrades being applied to power stations
  • Reduced of import of electricity from neighboring countries or when power pool member country is not supplying sufficient power quantities
  • Explorations or initiation phases of large-scale research missions in unknown areas
  • Areas where there is no pre-existing power generating infrastructure, such as distant places, remote islands and isolated industrial areas
  • Other unforeseen circumstances that cause power cuts
