The $180 million Peaky Power Plant project near Ilo, Peru, consisted of the design, supply, and construction of a dual fuel thermoelectric power generating plant. The purpose of the plant is to perform as a cold reserve for the Peruvian grid to be utilized during future power shortages. The plant includes 3 x GE 7FA gas turbines in simple cycle and was installed next to an existing ILO21 coal-fired power plant. The ILO21 substation was also expanded to accommodate the new capacity.

Spire assisted a joint venture between a South American engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) firm and General Electric (GE) by providing claims management services and an associated training course. Spire’s claims management services included performing schedule delay and acceleration analysis, productivity quantification, change order request development, quantification of cost overruns and damages, country rules and regulation assessment, claim presentation development, and claim strategy and negotiations.

Spire was able to successfully advise the client in delay, loss of productivity and quantification of damages in order to guide them through the dispute resolution process and ultimately seek early resolution.
