GE, Raytheon Supply Trinity- Built Electric Plant Barge

Phase I of a barge-mounted combined- cycle plant will soon begin operation. Under a $120 million turnkey contract, GE Industrial Power Systems (GEIPS) and Raytheon Engineers & Constructors are supplying equipment and services for the 186-MW plant, located in Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic and owned by Smith/Enron Cogeneration Ltd. The plant will supply power to a Dominican utility under a 16-year agreement.

Phase I is a barge-mounted, simple-cycle gas turbine system, constructed at Trinity Marine Group's Beaumont, Texas yard and delivered to the project site May 10 less than six months from contract signing. In Phase II, a second barge carrying a steam turbine generator, heat recovery steam generator and two power boilers will be added. Combined cycle operation is to begin July 1995, bringing total output to 186 MW. GE is providing plant conceptual design, combinedcycle performance guarantees and major power island equipment, including an MS7001EA gas turbine generator, 118-MW steam turbine generator, an HRSG and a plant control system. Raytheon is providing turnkey construction: engineering and design services, all balanceof- plant electrical and mechanical equipment, project and construction management, installation and erection services, plant start-up and testing services.
