Parque Pilar Thermal Power Plant (‘CTPP’)
CTPP is located in the Pilar Industrial Complex, in the district of Pilar, Province of Buenos Aires. Construction began in October 2016 pursuant to SEE (‘Secretariat of Electric Energy’) Res. No. 21/16, and the plant was commissioned on August 29, 2017. The plant is made up of 6 Wärtsilä engines with an approximate 43% efficiency, has a total 100 MW capacity, and may indistinctly consume fuel oil stored in own tanks or natural gas. Its historical average annual generation from 2018 to 2019 was 180 GWh.
Natural gas is supplied through a dedicated gas pipeline which is connected with TGN (‘Transportadora de Gas del Norte’)’s main gas pipeline, whereas the energy is evacuated through a 132 kV line connected to the Pilar substation owned by Edenor (‘Empresa Distribuidora y Comercializadora Norte’).
