High Desert Power

Industry Type: Power 
Project Description: High Desert Power Plant
Disciplines Involved: Engineering and Design

ProU Employees project managed and designed the 750 MW High Desert power project water treatment plant in Victorville, California.  The High Desert project water treatment plant consists of multi-stage filtration and a Zero Liquid Discharge facility.  The project achieved commercial operation May 2003, ahead of schedule and under budget.  This project was awarded the “2003 Plant of the Year” by Power Magazine.

Key Project Responsibilities and Skills

  • Project Management
  • Conceptual Design
  • Project Startup

Electric Transmission

Industry Type: Power 
Project Description: Electric Transmission
Disciplines Involved: Engineering and Design

This project consisted of the upgrade and installation of high voltage electric transmission sub-stations. As the owner's Project Manager, ProU managed the engineering, design, procurement, and demolition / construction of 69KV to 230 KV transformers, voltage regulators, reactors, breakers and Power Factor Correction for eighteen substations across a service area. The capital value of the projects varied from $500,000 to over $20MM each. Engineering design included Breaker and a Half (BAAH) or Ring Bus schemes for optimal performance, site grading, direct swap-out from old to new, replacement with current technology, equipment, transmission line adjustments, SCADA systems and security.

Simple Cycle Lake One

Industry Type: Gas- Fired Power 
Project Description:  47 MW Simple Cycle Lake One Project
Disciplines Involved:  Owner’s Engineering, Electrical Engineering

This project consisted of one GE LM6000 Sprint gas turbine generator equipped with SCR to meet the 5ppm NOx requirements by South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD). Various ProU Pasadena employees provided owner’s engineering services including conceptual design, and preliminary engineering in support of major equipment procurement activities and EPC contracting. ProU also provided owner’s engineering services including project management, construction management assistance, engineering, and electrical design services.

The project was completed within five months on schedule and under budget. Subsequent to this project, ProU personnel worked on additional plans as owner’s engineer and also performed a safety analysis.

Repowering Power Plant

Industry Type: Gas-Fired Power 
Project Description:  Repowering a Power Plant
Disciplines Involved:  Owner’s Engineering

ProU Pasadena employees managed the feasibility study as owner’s engineer to evaluate the repowering of the existing three steam turbine generators (STG) with a new combined cycle power generation using either GE LM6000 or GE 7FA gas turbine generators and a simple cycle GE LM6000 peaking unit.  The study addressed the technical impacts and economic trade-off of capital costs versus operating costs for the use of the evaporative cooler versus chiller for cooling the inlet air to the combustor, technical feasibility of firing landfill gas in the HRSG duct burners, and alternative site locations.

Key Project Responsibilities and Skills

  • Feasibility Study
