Genera PR promotes rental of new mobile natural gas units to produce operational savings

The main savings proposals presented by Generate PR to the Energy Bureau (NEPR) will be subject to subsequent analysis, while the organization’s consultants questioned the formulas that the company suggested to calculate several of the bonuses that it plans to claim at the end of this fiscal year, warning that they could result in incentives that do not align with a optimal service in its task of managing the generating fleet.

In a technical hearing convened this Thursday to evaluate the fuel optimization plan proposed by Genera PR, the operator’s main executive officer, Brannen McElmurrayannounced that, in addition to adapting existing plants to the use of natural gas, The rental of additional units that could be located in different generating facilities is planned..

According to the head of Genera PR, The San Juan plant, for example, has infrastructure to accommodate up to 100 additional megawatts (MW) in generation capacity.a detail that the company had not revealed during the proceedings before the NEPR.

“Systemwide, there is excess transformer capacity of 350 MW,” McElmurray said. “(The San Juan plant) is a perfect example, because there are 300 MW installed that are being underutilized. Subject to approval from multiple regulatory bodies, there would be an opportunity to bring in reliable generation, potentially at no cost. You could create savings by adding, for example, 100 MW in San Juan with (natural) gas and displacing diesel and super-inefficient heavy fuels. From an execution perspective, it is something you could do almost immediately,” he stressed.
