The end-user Client, PDVSA chose four (4) new Rolls Royce Trent 60 combustion turbine packages (CGTs) with Wet Low Emissions (WLE) combustors as the prime movers The project scope encompasses the supply and turnkey installation of these (4) CGTs ordered and supplied by CTG-PSI from Rolls Royce Energy Systems and fueled by natural gas. CTG-PSI was contracted by Y & V to specifically provide for the complete engineering, select procurement and
construction support and technical direction installation services for the 240MW power generation facility supporting PDVSA’s oil and gas operations.
CTG-PSI, through its EMD division, CTG Power Solutions, LLC (formerly The Camelot Technologies Group, LLC) was awarded a contract by Grupo Saesa, a PSEG company and Chile’s 3rd largest electrical power distributor, to provide for twenty-four (24) custom designed 2000KW 645EMD diesel fired emergency power generating sets for multiple sites throughout Chile. These reciprocating engines were designed to be installed in multiples of 10MWs power blocks as auxiliary power for the copper mining and fisheries industries. CTG-PSI provided fully remanufactured, and sound attenuated EMD diesel generating sets with custom enclosures and independent control systems. Each power plant can be monitored and operated remotely through a SCADA technology and simple high speed internet connection. CTG-PSI was responsible for the manufacturing design, site engineering, procurement, logistics and transportation, installation, operator training, start-up and commissioning. CTG-PSI has the capability to provide continuing upgrades through its 26,000 SF Odessa, FL and Auburn Alabama facilities.
CTG-PSI, working with Mock Roos Consulting Engineers, was hired to work with the East Central Regional Water Reclamation Facility Board in West Palm Beach on a continuing basis as an engineering and project consultant for modifications and upgrades to the existing 10MW emergency power facility located on site at the 70MGD plant. The ECRWRF serves The City of West Palm Beach, The City of Lake Worth, The City of Riviera Beach, The Town of Palm Beach and Palm Beach County, all located in the great state of Florida. CTG-PSI provided the preliminary feasibility study and recommended upgrades to the turbine control system, fuel system and starting systems for the 40 year old power facility. When complete, the upgrades will bring the facility up to current standards.
CTG-PSI was hired by Hazen and Sawyer Environmental Engineers of as an electrical power and cogeneration consultant for the ECRWRF Board in West Palm Beach to support the preparation of the Preliminary Engineering Report for Bio-Solids Treatment and Management. The report is the first phase of a $100MM project to convert the plant from aerobic to anaerobic digestion. The report was completed and presented April 2012, with Phase 2 of the project started in 2013, which included the preliminary engineering for the plant conversion and digester gas use. CTG-PSI provided a power production model and the following deliverables: Analysis of digester gas production rates, Identification of power plant options utilizing digester gas, Providing preliminary plant layouts for each option, Power consumption study for existing and new plant configurations, Plant Economic Analysis for existing and new configurations, and Identification of available grants and tax credits for project.
Responsible for the construction and operation of the Brooklyn Navy Yard Cogeneration Facility (286 MW) which was designed to be the cleanest major fossil fired power plant in the world. Negotiated the engineering, procurement and construction contracts and the investment incentive agreements. BNYCP was designed to be the most ecofriendly natural gas-fired power plant and received numerous environmental awards for its low emission systems. Charged with the overall responsibility for the development, construction and operation of the BNYCP facility, the first new power plant built in New York City in over twenty years. BNYCP was developed by York which entered into a 50/50 joint venture partnership with Edison Mission Energy to construct, own and operate the plant. BNYCP was designed to deliver its electric (286 MW) and steam output (up to 1 million lbs/hr.) to Consolidated Edison Co. of New York ("ConEd"). BNYCP was the first independent power plant (“IPP”) constructed in the US and the cleanest and most efficient plant in their entire generation fleet.
Managed the construction of the Big Spring Wind Facility in West Texas. Responsible for negotiating all contractor and supply work for installing 46 Vestas wind turbines, transmission interconnection, substation, roads, and O&M building. Completed on time and within budget.
This Plant was built in conjunction with Texas Utilities ("TU") and the city of Austin, Texas as part of the TU Renew Program that offered customers the opportunity to directly purchase renewable energy to satisfy their energy requirements.
