Project IRR goes Down but Partner IRR goes up? ( no promote structure)


I dont understand how a partners IRR can increase overtime while a projects IRR goes down.

In the attached case, I assume the partner contributes all the equity and gets a 50/50 split after his equity is paid back.

I have two scenarios: 4 year and 7 year. Project IRR goes down if I exit in Year 7 vs Year 4.

But Partner IRR under the above structure goes up! no preferred return or any other split.

I have pondered the case for a couple of days without avail.

I attached the cashflows below hoping that someone can show me the light….
