The TGU power plant, in collaboration with T&TEC, is set to undergo a scheduled routine maintenance exercise and system upgrade, beginning on November 26th 2023 at 10:00 pm and concluding on the morning of Sunday, November 27th 2023.

This proactive initiative aims to ensure the optimal operation of all plant equipment, guaranteeing a reliable and uninterrupted power supply to TTEC. The focus of the maintenance includes the shutdown of TGU’s distributed control system (DCS) on November 25th and 26th, a critical component for monitoring and controlling gas and steam cycle operations.

The DCS system upgrade is imperative to enhance and maintain the efficient delivery of power from TGU to TTEC. This enhancement allows TGU to maximize the utilization of its critical “fuel free” steam cycle, contributing 37.5% (270MW) of output without the need for natural gas as fuel.

During the maintenance period, T&TEC will rely on other contracted Independent Power Producers (IPPs) with a combined capability of over 1,300 MW to ensure continued power supply. TGU remains committed to supporting T&TEC in providing maximum reliable power output at the lowest possible gas consumption cost.

The TGU team is dedicated to efficiently completing the upgrade works, with full operation expected to resume by Sunday 27th November 2023.

TGU appreciates the understanding and cooperation of its stakeholders as they work together to enhance the efficiency and reliability of the power supply.
