Project Details


Los Guindos Generación SpA owns the diesel and natural gas-powered Turbina de Respaldo Los Guindos, which has been operating since 2015 and works as a backup for the national SIC grid. The expansion of this plant, Los Guindos Thermal plant expansion project, entails the construction of a second dual generating unit (132MW) and a steam turbine (140MW), which will complete the combined cycle when natural gas is used. Construction is expected to take up to 48 months and generate around 850 jobs.
