PACO UNITS 1 AND 2
Punta Rincon, Panama
New Coal Plant / 2×150 MW / Colombian Bituminous Coal
Client: SK Engineering & Construction (SK E&C)

  • Boiler: SeenTec
  • Seawater FGD system: Fisia Babcock
  • Steam turbine-generator: Doosan Skoda
  • January 2017 – commercial operation

The PACO project consists of two identical 150-MW subcritical coal-fired units and associated steam turbine-generators, located on a greenfield site on the Caribbean coastline of Panama, approximately 130 km west of Panama City. Each unit includes one boiler, one steam turbine-generator (STG), a seawater flue gas desulfurization (FGD) unit, and once-through cooling of the STG exhaust using seawater. The STG units are located indoors.

The design incorporates state-of-the-art equipment, software, and features. SK Engineering & Construction (SK E&C) is developing the plant on an EP (Engineer & Procure) basis for Minera Panama, S.A. (MPSA), who is the plant owner. MPSA is managing the construction and is a subsidiary of First Quantum Minerals Ltd. The plant is being built to supply power for the new Cobre copper mine currently under development.

SK E&C teamed exclusively with Sargent & Lundy, SeenTec, Doosan Skoda, and Fisia Babcock to submit their winning offer for the project. Sargent & Lundy supported SK E&C with development of their technical bid and through the entire bidding phase. The team of is providing the detailed engineering and design for the project.
