I have been instrumental member of several projects teams around the world for development of large to mid scale power and water projects and have successfully completed projects requiring advanced solutions or high-efficiency equipment. From natural gas and steam to desalination, I am equipped to provide full complement of engineering roles from conception to completion to support all of client’s needs including preliminary conceptual engineering, due diligence, and studies to owner’s engineering, design criteria, technology selection, and detail design, field start-up and commissioning activities.
I was appointed Lead Engineer and Commissioning Manager by Parsons Brinckerhoff for 45MIGD QEWC Ras Abu Fontas RAF-A1 Water Desalination and Cogeneration power plant. The plant consists of three 19-stages Multi-stage Flash Desalination units with three single pressure HRSGs.
I was appointed as Lead Electrical Engineer to oversee the installation and commissioning of Germencik 47 MW geothermal power project in Aydin, Turkey. The Omerbyli steam field is considered to be one of the largest geothermal resource areas in Turkey. The plant based around a dual-exhaust double-flash steam turbine. The project involved saturated steam and dealt with a variety of design challenges related to the chemical composition of the resource and resulting steam constituents.
Throughout the project, I was leading the Contractor’s electrical works for the development of a 110MW Geothermal Power Plant at Darajat, near Garut, West Java. Darajat III was the third stage of Chevron Texaco’s development of the Darajat Geothermal Resource. The power plant works comprised engineering, procurement, construction, testing and commissioning of the Unit 3’s turbine generator unit and all associated auxiliaries and interconnection with the steam fields.
I was appointed as owner’s lead electrical engineer for two-unit 1074MW Kwangyang CCGT (Combined Cycle Gas Turbine) power station which become Korea’s first merchant plant. The project consisted of GE Power Systems’ F Class turbines, 170MW Frame 7FA gas turbine-generators with generators are hydrogen cooled, and rated at 229.7 MVA.
I have been employed by Contact Energy Limited as Owner’s Engineer for Otahuhu B CCGT near Auckland during plant construction and commissioning and later for operation and maintenance. Otahuhu B CCGT is the largest of its kind in New Zealand and one of the most efficient in the world.
I have worked on Te Rapa 45MW plus 120 tons per hour of steam Cogeneration Power Project from inception to full operation. The power station was commissioned in 1999 to provide high quality steam and electricity to Fonterra’s Te Rapa factory, one of the world’s largest milk powder drying plants. Surplus electricity is directed back to the local grid. The cogeneration plant is designed for flexible operation.
I was appointed Lead Control & Instrumentation for Taranaki Combined Cycle Power Station (TCC) project. TCC is first single-shaft CCGT in New Zealand with best fuel efficiencies of all of New Zealand’s thermal stations at 56.7 per cent. The heart of TCC is Alstom GT26 gas turbine which is considered one of the largest gas turbines in the world housed in a single building.
I was appointed as Lead Control and Instrument Engineer for BOPE Bay Milk 10MW cogeneration power project. The Station was commissioned in 1996 and consists of two General Electric Corporation (GEC) Typhoons rated at 5 MW each. The plant produces up to 60 tonnes an hour of steam for use in the Fonterra milk processing plant” (with supplementary firing).
