Gas Turbine / Combined-Cycle / Cogeneration
We bring extensive experience with gas turbine based power and cogeneration, including all of the leading manufacturers’ frame and aero-derivative gas turbine technologies, and have provided owner’s advisory and independent engineering services to a variety of stakeholders. Our experience includes over 75 GW of gas turbine based power and cogeneration projects throughout the U.S. and internationally, where we have provided owner’s advisory and independent engineering services in support of new financing, M&A, construction and operations.
Fengate’s Acquisition of the Heartland Petrochemical Complex’s Central Utility Block
Luminate provided advisory and independent engineering services in support of Fengate’s acquisition and financing of the Heartland Petrochemical Complex’s Central Utility Block. This unique, $600 million facility will produce 102 MW of electricity as well as steam and other utilities supporting operation of Inter Pipeline Ltd’s adjacent propane dehydrogenation and polypropylene facilities.
127 MW ING Midstream Project
Luminate served as independent engineer for ING Capital’s financing of IMG Midstream’s 127-MW portfolio of six internal combustion engine-based power generation assets located in Pennsylvania. In addition to electricity supply, these natural gas-fired facilities perform grid support functions and are equipped with state-of-the-art clean-burn and emissions reduction equipment.
Solid Fuels / Coal-Fired / Central Utility Stations
With a veteran team, we have broad experience in providing advisory and independent engineering services on solid fueled plants, including coal, waste coal, and lignite-fired power projects ranging from independent power projects to large, central utility stations.
2490 Bruce Mansfield Coal
Luminate supported appraisal of the nominal 2,470 MW Bruce Mansfield coal-fired power generation facility located in Shippingport, Pennsylvania, providing unit characteristics, performance and expense assumptions consistent with the design of the plant, historical performance, expected operating scenarios, and environmental requirements.
Waste Heat Recovery / Combined Heat & Power
Our experience includes waste heat, low temperature heat recovery, waste gas, gas conditioning, organic Rankine cycle, and engine and gas turbine generators. We have extensive experience with organic rankine cycle applications and equipment in the geothermal power and waste heat industries. We bring experience with municipal solid waste (MSW) facilities employing a variety of direct burn and gasification technologies.
District Heating & Cooling
We bring significant experience with district heating and cooling projects, providing technical due diligence, independent engineering reviews, and monitoring of construction and commissioning/testing. We have reviewed city and resort heating and cooling plants and related systems, from conventional chillers and boilers to ocean thermal seawater cooling systems and related infrastructure.
