Awarding of Closing to Combined Cycle Project at Genelba Thermal Power Plant ('CTGEBA')
On October 18, 2017, under the call for closing to combined cycle and co-generation projects, Resolution No. 926-E/2017 of the Secretariat of Electric Energy ('SEE') was published, whereby the Ministry of Energy and Mining ('MEyM') selected projects to enter into Wholesale Power Purchase Agreement ('PPA') with the Wholesale Electricity Market Company ('CAMMESA').
Genelba Plus's closing to combined cycle, which will add an incremental capacity of 383 MW to CTGEBA's current facilities owned by the Company (the 'Project'), is among the twelve selected projects, which altogether will add more than 1.8 GW of power capacity to the grid.
The Project consists of the installation of a new gas turbine and a steam turbine, as well as other enhancement works over the current Genelba Plus's gas turbine, which altogether will complete the second combined cycle at CTGEBA, with a gross power capacity of 552 MW and 52% of efficiency. The Project's investment budget is estimated around US$360 million, and the Project's engineering, equipment procurement and construction ('EPC') will be jointly carried out by Siemens and Techint. Its commissioning at open cycle is expected for the second quarter of 2019, and as closed cycle for the second quarter of 2020. The PPA will be effective for a term of fifteen years and will remunerate a fixed price of US$20,500 per MW per month and a variable price of US$6 per MWh.
Along with this expansion, CTGEBA, which is located in Marcos Paz, Province of Buenos Aires, will have two combined cycles and will reach a total installed capacity of 1.2 GW. Currently, Genelba generates power with a 674 MW combined cycle and a 169 MW Genelba Plus's gas turbine, in which the Project will be conducted. Once all expansion projects are commissioned, Pampa Energía will contribute a total installed capacity of 4.3 GW to the Argentine grid.
Commissioning of the New Thermal Power Plant Parque Pilar ('CTPP')
On August 31, 2017, CAMMESA granted the commercial operation of CTPP, pursuant to the PPA executed between CAMMESA and Pampa as awardee under the Call for New Generation Capacity pursuant to SEE Resolution No. 21/2016.
The project, which consisted of the construction of a new thermal power plant in the Pilar Industrial Complex (located at Pilar, Province of Buenos Aires), is made up of 6 cutting-edge high-efficiency Wärtsilä engines, with a total power capacity of 100 MW and able to fire either natural gas or, alternatively, fuel oil. It is worth pointing out that said commissioning was achieved before the terms stipulated in the PPA, as from which time the applicable supply obligations became effective.
II RenovAr Tender
Pursuant to MEyM Resolution No. 275-E/2017 published in the Public Gazette ('BO') on August 17, 2017, it opened the National and International Call 'RenovAr Program II Round' for the electric energy from renewable sources contracted within the Wholesale Electric Market ('WEM'). The Call's purpose is to install power capacity for up to 1.2 GW, taking into consideration the source, power capacity, technology and region, with a maximum price for each specific technology.
