Title: Resid-fired 180-MW cogen plant saving $13 million/yr fuel costs

Abstract

Since May 1991, Kalaeloa Cogeneration Partners has been commercially operating a 217-million, nominal 180-MW combined cycle cogeneration plant on the Island of Oahu in Hawaii, burning low-sulfur residual fuel oil to provide electric power to the local utility and process steam to a nearby refinery. The plant is installed in an industrial park at the Barbers Point area of Oahu, adjacent to the Hawaiian Electric Company (HECO) yard and substation and bordering the Hawaii Independent Refinery Inc. (HRI) facility on the other side. HECO buys all the cogen plant's electrical power output, up to 180 MW, while HIRI purchases the 120,000 pounds per hour of process steam produced at the cogen facility. In turn, HIRI sells the Kalaeloa plant low-sulfur residual oil which fuels the gas turbines.
