The design, construction and operation of an IGCC cogeneration plant requires commercial planning, regulatory processing and financial coordination as well as technical engineering. This paper is an overview of the ISAB Energy Project a heavy oil fueled IGCC cogeneration plant that produces electric power and process steam. Crucial activities before and after design include formation of the equity partnership, early feasibilities studies, basic design and permitting, structuring of cogeneration contracts, and financing the project.
