Nusantara Steel Power Project, Malaysia

Gas-Fired Combined Cycle Power Plant, 350 MW Malaysia

A new compact hot strip mill production complex at Sabah makes Malaysia one of the leading producers of hot-rolled coils (HRC) in Southeast Asia. The “Greenfield” steel mill produces 1.3 Mtpa of HRC. Direct Reduced Iron (DRI) was used in an electric DC arc furnace to produce liquid steel, which was then formed into thin-slabs. The steel mill is one of very few in the world to have its own “captive” power generation plant, which produces 350MW of electrical energy for use exclusively by the complex.

Owner’s Engineer. Responsible for preliminary design & feasibility assessment of a 350 MW captive power station for a proposed 1.2 MTPA compact steel mill. Work included the development of thermodynamic cycles for a number of options to facilitate their technical analysis. Compiled capital cost estimates for all options to enable their economic analysis and for the development of project proforma.

Termovalle Power Plant, Columbia

Combined Cycle Power Plant, 200 MW Cali, Columbia

Termovalle is a 200 MW natural gas-fired combined cycle power plant located near the city of Cali, Colombia. The electricity generated from Termovalle is dispatched into the Colombian wholesale electricity market where the power from the plant provides critical back up to support Colombia’s national electricity demand.

Independent Engineer providing expert opinion at an arbitration hearing held to resolve disputes arising from project EPC Contract. Reviewed the engineering design relevant to the systems from which the disputes have arisen. Reviewed the claims, evidence, and the pre-filed expert reports. Submitted a pre-filed expert report and provided testimony.

Cardinal Power NUG, Canada

Combined Cycle Power Plant, 156 MW Ontario, Canada

Cardinal Power (Cardinal), a combined cycle gas cogeneration plant, is one of Ontario’s largest independent non-utility generators (NUGs). Cardinal simultaneously produces electricity and thermal energy from natural gas with net capacity of 156 MW, which results in a highly efficient use of energy.

Independent Engineer verifying facility’s readiness for commercial operation purposes, as required in IESO NUG contract. Reviewed certain aspects of plant design, operations, and performance. Witnessed performance test and issued test report.

Island Power Project, PacificLight, Singapore

Combined Cycle Power Plant, 800 MW Jurong Island, Singapore

Island Power Project, Singapore is designed and commissioned combined-cycle power plant (CCPP) on Jurong Island in Singapore with an installed electrical generating capacity of approximately 800 megawatts. Owner of the plant is Pacific Light Power Pte. Ltd.(PLP).

Independent Engineer retained by project owner to perform a complete due diligence review of select aspects of project design and audit construction. Multi-discipline services included review/compliance with ASME Section I, review/compliance with ASME B31.1, grounding design and grid integrity testing, review high voltage transformers design and FAT, review electrical system protection, relay setting and design coordination and other plant systems.

Kirkland Lake Power Corporation, Canada

Simple Cycle Power Plant, 30 MW Ontario, Canada

The Facility is a 30 MW natural gas-fired, simple-cycle, gas-turbine-generator power plant with 30 MW capacity. The Facility is built on the existing Kirkland Lake Power Corporation (KLPC) property, adjacent to the base-loaded cogeneration station, in Kirkland Lake, Ontario.

Independent Engineer to execute Project Review for obtaining Commercial Operational Certification.

Portlands Energy Center, Canada

Combined Cycle Power Plant, 550 MW Ontario, Canada

The Portlands Energy Centre is a 550-megawatt combined cycle gasfired power project on the Toronto waterfront at 470 Unwin Avenue, next to the site of the decommissioned Hearn Generating Station

Independent Engineer providing an expert opinion as to whether or not the plant is “cogeneration ready”. The plant is not anticipated to have a thermal heat host when it enters commercial operations and plant owner’s claim that the facility is designed to operate in a cogeneration mode.
