EcoEléctrica A Better Environment with Natural Gas Carlos A. Reyes-Berríos, P.E. General Manager - Operations Operational Experience of EcoElectrica L.P. in the Puerto Rico Electric System CIAPR General Meeting August 5, 2010 – San Juan, PR
EcoEléctrica A Better Environment with Natural Gas Objectives oFacility Overview oEcoElectrica in the System oOperational Experience oGas Natural Impact on Production Costs oEnvironmental oResults oTSA Functional Description
EcoEléctrica A Better Environment with Natural Gas Facility Overview oFacility 507MWnet Combined Cycle Power Plant LNG Import Terminal and Re-gasification station 2MGD Desalination Water Production Plant oStaffing 77 total number of EcoElectrica Employees 67 positions in the O&M Organization 40 positions form O&M allocated to the power plant,.07/MW oCommercial 100% contracted with PREPA for 22 years 93% availability / 45% thermal efficiency contracted guarantee Facility dispatched from 54% to 100% Energy priced fixed annually up to 76% dispatch, above 76% dispatch price is based on spot offers
EcoEléctrica A Better Environment with Natural Gas oFirst IPP integrated to the electric system and only power plant on natural gas. o9% of the electric system installed capacity of 5,700MW. o13 – 15 % of the island annual energy production of 23,000MkWhr. oEnvironmentally cleanest and best thermal efficiency power plant on the island. oAncillary services provider as any other power station on the electric system. oOne of 10 LNG Terminal’s in US Borders. EcoElectrica in the System
EcoEléctrica A Better Environment with Natural Gas Operational Experience oPower Plant Stable plant reliability, achieving contractual availability. Base loaded power plant with daily load following dispatch. > 90% service factor, ~80% capacity factor. ~ 80k EBH, 3 rd W501F fleet leaders Three fuel capability, on-line fuel transfers from NG to Diesel and from NG to LPG. oLNG Terminal ~99.5% annual availability with >99.9% reliability. 128 LNG ship un-loadings w/out safety incidents. Exceeding security requirements from Federal Agencies Annual inspections from FERC and USCG consistently w/out material findings or recommendations.
EcoEléctrica A Better Environment with Natural Gas Receiving 136,000mt 3 tankers 24 hrs total unloading time Storage 160,000mt 3, Double containment Un-cooled / atmospheric pressure Re-gasification 2 X 93 MMSCFD, heat source from CT’s inlet air Controlled temperature rise from -256 o F to 40 o F
EcoEléctrica A Better Environment with Natural Gas Production Costs o Fuel Cost accounts for 49% to 92% of the total production cost of the Power Plant o Thermal Efficiency energy conversion factor from fuel to electricity normalized to the best thermal performance in the system this component accounts up to 38% of the total production cost o O&M Costs accounts for 26% to 5% of the total production cost of the Power Plant on a gas turbine burning natural gas vs oil#2 the O&M cost is reduced by a factor of 30%. Oil#2 SC – high fuel cost / low efficiency Coal CFB – high O&M / low fuel cost NGCC – low O&M cost / high efficiency Fuel Cost + Efficiency + O&M Cost PR electric system cost estimates. Based on actual fuel cost and IPP’s PPOA base energy cost.
EcoEléctrica A Better Environment with Natural Gas Production Costs Actual gap from crude to LNG is above 40% including estimated transportation costs.
EcoEléctrica A Better Environment with Natural Gas o Natural Gas Inherent Fossil fuels lowest CO 2, 30% less than Oil and 43% less than Coal. Nitrogen Oxides is less than 25% than oil. Almost zero Sulfur & Particulates. o Controls Steam injection and SCR with ammonia injection for NO x reduction. 6 –
EcoEléctrica A Better Environment with Natural Gas Results o Reliable operation in compliance with PPOA warranties and within best 10% of comparable operations worldwide. o Excellent relation with Federal and Local Regulating Agencies. o Perfect safety record on the LNG Terminal Management. o ~ 7 years w/out lost time accidents in the facility. o OSHAS 18,001 certified facility. o 2008 EPA Environmental Excellence Award. o ISO 14,001 certified facility. o Best O&M team in the sector.
