Pego CC
Location: Santarem
Operator: ElecGas SA
Configuration: 2 x 415 MW single-shaft CCGT blocks with SGT5-4000F gas turbines
Fuel: natural gas
Operation: 2011
HRSG supplier: NEM
T/G supplier: Siemens
EPC: Siemens, Carbonell Figueras
Quick facts: The Pego site was originally sized for two additional conventional units, but in 2002, Tejo Energia completed an EIA for deployment of a pair of 400-MW combined-cycles instead. The public inquiry period expired in Jan 2003 without incident and, in Mar 2008, International Power successfully completed the financing of the project. Other key agreements, including a tolling contract and an EPC contract, were signed at the same time and the production license was received in Apr 2008. The plant is owned and operated by a 50:50 joint venture of International Power and Endesa snf shares cooling water infrastructure and other services with the Pego coal-fired plant. The total project cost was estimated to be €580mn, funded by an 85:15 mix of debt and equity. PB Power was owner's engineer. The entire output is sold to Endesa Generacion SA under a 25yr tolling contract.
