The purpose of the combustion engine evaluation was to determine the heat consumption curves of the engine for the full range of loads as well for the start-up and shutdown of the unit.
ThermoGen Power Services Inc. conducted this test following the international accepted test protocol ASME PTC17-1973.
TGPS scope include the creation of a performance test procedure, provision of testing equipment and creating the final performance test report. The final report was approved by the government authorities and currently TGPS remains in the list of certified auditors after 6 years.

TGPS has been hired by the grid operator, Red Electrica de España to supervise the execution of the test to determine the generation costs and start-up costs of 87 power plants around the islands of: Tenerife, Gran Canaria, Lanzarote, Ceuta, El Hierro, La Gomera, Palma de Mallorca and Ibiza.
In total the following number of plants are to be tested during 18 months period.
Performance testing to regulate the electrical systems in the islands.
- Combined Cycles: 9
- Diesel: 43
- Gas Turbine: 28
- Steam Turbine: 5
- Coal Plants: 2
The goal is to understand the generation costs of each plant to review the electricity prices.
