January 29, 2014: Supreme Group, a worldwide leader in the provision of end to end supply chain solutions in challenging situations around the world, was awarded a twelve month 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 roughly 44 miles south of Mongolia’s capital Ulaanbaatar, the Salkhit Wind Farm is a landmark project established by the private sector with backing from the Mongolian Government and international development organizations. The project aspires to better living conditions in Mongolia through the assembly of electricity by an indigenous, clean and renewable energy source. The 50 megawatt structure uses 31 GE turbines and will yearly offset close to 180,000 tons of CO² emissions; decrease coal usage by 122,000 tons; and save 1.6 million tons of fresh water. The power made by the project will service customers connected to the central grid in Mongolia; a country in which energy demand has been increasing by eight per cent annually over the past years.
Stephen Orenstein, Principal, Supreme Group said, “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.”
“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,” Orenstein added.
Supreme delivers 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. Supreme makes food supply and camp services available to workers in a road construction camp in the South Gobi Desert. This is a contract awarded by one of Mongolia’s major industrial holding companies.
