(OTC PINK: GPGC) has always focused on enhancing shareholder value and is now proud to announce that it has formed a joint venture with TransPacific Energy (TPE) to finance, build, own and operate renewable energy projects worldwide through Power Purchase Agreements (PPA).
TPE (www.transpacenergy.com) provides innovative solutions for heat-to-power and renewable energy generation with thermal storage, solar, biomass and geothermal technology. The company has developed a proprietary modular Organic Rankin Cycle (ORC) system that efficiently transforms waste heat from energy production and industrial processes to electrical energy. TPE’s systems use environmentally safe refrigerant mixtures and are an ideal alternative to cooling towers and steam condensers. TPE holds several patents in the area of heat-to-power and thermal storage and continues to excel in conducting advanced research and development.
TPE brings new potential Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) projects to the joint venture with terms between 15 and 20 years. These projects include the development of a 20MW solar plant in Guinea, a 30MW biomass plant in Brazil, and a 30MW heat-to-power gas turbine and steam turbine with integrated ORC power plant in China, with a potential for expansion up to 900MW.
“TPE’s expertise in renewable energy production will complement our existing engineering capabilities. This partnership will give GPGC a solid position for implementing our projects and generating electricity as efficiently as possible,” said Ramiro Guerrero, President and CEO of GPGC.
