Subject: Wartsila USA


This is the e-mail you forwarded back in February. I have chased up all of
the guys in the US and here's the scoop:

Spoke with Bob Virgo who is a John Chappell equivalent, working for Dave Duran
They looked hard at the Wartsila engines back in March and concluded that it
would not work due to emissions problems - they were considering the sites
from all over the US
They haven't spoken with Wartsila for over a month
No wonder why Dave Duran hasn't rushed to call me back

Spoke with Jeff Golden who is VP Corporate Development and acting as deal
leader for distributed generation projects
They have spoken with Wartsila only generally about a deal
EES is trying to create optionality for its originators by pre-permitting
some sites in New Mexico (x 2), Arizona (x 2) and Nevada (x 5)
Each site would be suited for 10 - 50 MW... therefore 70 - 350 MW total
They looked at a 2-4 year lease option with Wartsila starting this summer but
it likely won't happen - can't get the sites permitted in time
Jeff didn't think there was anything that would cause Wartsila to conclude
that the US deal was immenent
Jeff was interested in co-ordinating our efforts and wants to discuss the
merits of a global deal - I will be sending him a copy of our Wartsila term

Spoke with Mark Dobler who is VP Operations
confirmed that Jeff is the man to talk to in EES
sentiment in EES is that they are no big time bullish about getting into
physical positions to cover off California - thinks the Sol Cal Edison credit
problem will be solved by the government
heard that one of the EES guys in Brazil (Tony Spruill) is looking at
generation to cover off some positions - another potential for a global deal

From Enron USA's perspective there is no burning deal for Wartsila kit

Interesting feedback considering this morning's conversation...

We are in negotiations with Wartsila, a maker of 3MW gas recip engines, that
gives us access to up to 700MW of engines over a 5 year time frame (including
some very nice optionality). An important feature is that we think we can
mark to market the tolling contracts.

Chris Thrall is the lead originator on the deal, which still has some
significant hurdles to overcome. My intention is to get this deal done, then
bring North America in to the equation.
Wartsila are a counterparty with great potential, but can be flakey, and
therefore need to be handled carefully. I will ask Chris to give you a call
later today.

Subject: Mobile DG Sets

Richard -

I was referred to you by Dan Leff, who asked me to touch base on some mobile
power sets you are deploying in the UK. He indicated the number to be qty 70
10MW units.

I have the same task here in the US, specifically to take advantage of the
power shortage occurring 2-3Q 2001, in multiple markets.

If you are the right contact person, can we talk on 12 Feb? I can be reached
at 713.345.5296 (office) or 713.302.3663 (cell). If you are not the right
contact person, can you forward accordingly? Thanks for your help.
