According to GlobalData, who tracks and profiles over 170,000 power plants worldwide, the project is currently active. It has been developed in multiple phases. Post completion of construction, the project got commissioned in January 1999. Buy the profile here.

Description

The project is currently owned by Colbun with a stake of 100%.

It is a Combined Cycle Gas Turbine (CCGT) power plant. The power plant run on dual-fuel. The primary fuel being used to power the plant is natural gas. In case of shortage of natural gas the plant can also run on Diesel.

The project generated 3,233,076MWh of electricity.

Development status

The project got commissioned in January 1999.

Power purchase agreement

The power generated from the project is sold to Sistema Interconectado Central under a power purchase agreement.
