Operational Experience of

EcoElectrica L.P. in the

Puerto Rico Electric System

CIAPR General Meeting

August 5, 2010 – San Juan, PR

Carlos A. Reyes-Berríos, P.E.

General Manager - Operations


Objectives

  • Facility Overview

  • EcoElectrica in the System

  • Operational Experience

  • Gas Natural Impact on Production Costs

  • Environmental

  • Results

  • TSA Functional Description


Facility Overview

  • Facility

    • 507MWnet Combined Cycle Power Plant

    • LNG Import Terminal and Re-gasification station

    • 2MGD Desalination Water Production Plant

  • Staffing

    • 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

  • Commercial

    • 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


  • EcoElectrica in the System

    • First IPP integrated to the electric system and only power plant on natural gas.

    • 9% of the electric system installed capacity of 5,700MW.

    • 13 – 15 % of the island annual energy production of 23,000MkWhr.

    • Environmentally cleanest and best thermal efficiency power plant on the island.

    • Ancillary services provider as any other power station on the electric system.

    • One of 10 LNG Terminal’s in US Borders.


    Operational Experience

    • Power Plant

      • Stable plant reliability, achieving contractual availability.

      • Base loaded power plant with daily load following dispatch.

      • > 90% service factor, ~80% capacity factor.

      • ~ 80k EBH, 3rd W501F fleet leaders

      • Three fuel capability, on-line fuel transfers from NG to Diesel and from NG to LPG.

    • LNG 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.

    Production Costs

    NGCC – low O&M cost / high efficiency

    Fuel Cost + Efficiency + O&M Cost

    Fuel Cost

    • accounts for 49% to 92% of the total production cost of the Power Plant

      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&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

    PR electric system cost estimates. Based on actual fuel cost and IPP’s PPOA base energy cost.


    Production Costs

    Actual gap from crude to LNG is above 40% including estimated

    transportation costs.


    Environmental

    Natural Gas Inherent

    • Fossil fuels lowest CO2, 30% less than Oil and 43% less than Coal.

    • Nitrogen Oxides is less than 25% than oil.

    • Almost zero Sulfur & Particulates.

      Controls

    • Steam injection and SCR with ammonia injection for NOx reduction.

    6 – 22 - 3


    Results

    • Reliable operation in compliance with PPOA warranties and within best 10% of comparable operations worldwide.

    • Excellent relation with Federal and Local Regulating Agencies.

    • Perfect safety record on the LNG Terminal Management.

    • ~ 7 years w/out lost time accidents in the facility.

    • OSHAS 18,001 certified facility.

    • 2008 EPA Environmental Excellence Award.

    • ISO 14,001 certified facility.

    • Best O&M team in the sector.
