A Program is a group of related projects sharing a comon theme managed in a coordinated manner to obtain benefits and taking advantage of each others results. Over the past eight years (2007-2015) POWER LATIN AMERICA (also know as PLA) identified the opportunity (conceptualized), managed and implemented a radical change in the energy matrix of the Ecuadorian Oil Industry through the OGE&EE (“Optimizacion Generacion Electrica & Eficiencia Energetica”) Program, jointly with PETROAMAZONAS EP.
After a thorough in-depth grass root analysis, and based on extensive experience and feedback from projects implemented by PLA in previous years, POWER LATIN AMERICA developed the “Plan de Desarrollo OGE&EE 2013 – 2017” which was approved by government authorities on the 22th of August 2013.
The OGE&EE program, as laid out in the “Plan de Desarrollo” (Business Plan), consists of 120 integrated projects covering an area of approximately 25,000 km2.
The OGE&EE program (all the 120 projects) were divided in the following categories:
• Power Generation
• Power Distribution
• Fuel Handling
• Waste Heat Recover
• Research and Development R&D.
