Ingeniero White Thermal Power Plant (‘CTIW’)
Located at Ingeniero White, district of Bahía Blanca, in a lot adjacent to CPB (thermal power plant ‘Piedra Buena’), CTIW consists of 6 dual-fuel (natural gas or fuel oil) Wärtsilä engines, with 100 MW installed power capacity, representing 0.2% of Argentine installed capacity. The engines are highly efficient, with a 46% performance rate.
The plant is interconnected to the 132 kV grid through a Transba (‘Empresa de Transporte de Energía Eléctrica por Distribución Troncal de la Provincia de Buenos Aires’) substation. Liquid fuel is supplied using CPB’s unloading and storage facilities and natural gas through CPB’s internal facilities.
From 2018 to 2022, its historical average annual generation was 285 GWh, with a generation record high of 312 GWh in 2019 and a record low of 229 GWh in 2020.
