Project Details


The project calls for the construction and operation of a combined cycle plant, operated with natural gas, which will inject the produced power into Chile's central SIC power grid. Los Rulos will obtain the natural gas mainly from Quintero, located in Valparaiso, Chile, and Argentina; however, the project will additionally use diesel as backup fuel in case of emergency or disruption in the supply of the main fuel source. Construction will require around 1,733 workers, while its operation will demand 33 people.
