Thermal Power Plant Parque Pilar (‘CTPP’)

CTPP is located in the Pilar Industrial Complex, in the district of Pilar, Province of Buenos Aires. Construction began in October 2016, and the plant was commissioned on August 29, 2017. The plant, which was built under SEE (‘Secretariat of Electric Energy’) Resolution No. 21/2016, has a total power capacity of 100 MW and is made up of 6 cutting-edge Wärtsilä engines with an approximate 45% performance rate. In 2018, its generation amounted to 192 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’). The power plant has storage tanks for fuel oil, which may be used as alternative fuel.
