Pascuales plant nears completion
Westinghouse Electric Corp. has received the order to supply power generation equipment for the 100 MW simple-cycle Pascuales peaking plant near Guayaquil, Ecuador. The Instituto Ecuatoriano de Electrificacion will own and operate the plant. It will initially be fueled with No. 2 fuel oil, then switched to natural gas when the plant is converted into a baseload facility. The plant is expected to enter commercial operation in December 1996.
