Title: Technical Economic Energy Dispatch in the GRB Project Identifier: 1975-7162

Project Description

The management of The Barrancabermeja Refinery of Ecopetrol S.A. (GRB), located on the banks of the Magdalena River In Barrancabermeja, Santander, Colombia, Is an industrial complex that produces gasoline, fuel oil, diesel and other fuels that Colombia requires. The productive activity of the GRB is supplied with electric energy and steam required for its operation from industrial services, a set of boilers and turbine generators. The greenhouse gas mitigation project results in increasing the energy conversion efficiency for the GRB. The project consists of: implementation of the technical-economic dispatch process of energy, under which steam and electric energy are managed In an integral way to optimize the use of fuel gas and reduce the amount of GHG emissions; applying software and similar tools for the planning of the technical-economic dispatch and improve the effectiveness of the technical-economic dispatch; and adding new technologies and equipment to the industrial services that support the improvement in the efficiency of the energy conversion.
