Calpine POWER PLANT

Shapouri & Associates was employed to complete the planning and engineering of the East Otay Mesa Generating Power Plant, with the East Otay Mesa SPA.  More specifically, the Power Plant is located approximately 15 miles southeast of San Diego, near the base of the San Ysidro Mountains, and about 1.5 miles north of the United States/Mexico border.  The 15-acre site is part of a 46-acre property northeast of the intersection of Otay Mesa Road and Alta Road.  

The 510-megawatt natural gas-fired, combined cycle facility was constructed to be operated as a merchant power plant in order to be able to sell power into the California Power Exchange, provide reliability to the San Diego grid, provide ancillary services and sell power on a bilateral basis.  Major features of the power plant are two single-shaft, combined cycle power blocks, with each block having a combustion turbine generator, inlet air evaporative coolers, exhaust stacks, heat recovery system generators and steam turbines.   Other major components of the project include water treatment equipment and cooling towers. Other facilities will include a control room and administration building; air cooled condensers, storage tanks, and a transmission switchyard.
