The company has a backlog of over 1,000 MW in Argentina, including open-cycle plant projects in Ensenada Barragán and Santa Fe, as well as the combined-cycle plant in Loma de La Lata, which came online in 2010. It is now building the southernmost power plant in the world, to produce electricity on River Turbio, using fluidized bed combustion (FBC) for burning coal in the most environmentally-friendly manner.
In Mexico, Isolux Corsán has built the 274-MW thermal power plant in Rosarito, which has been operating since 2009.
The group has also recently implemented an open-cycle floating power plant with two 100-MW gas turbines in Angola, to supply the capital, Luanda. It is also finalising the construction of the dual-fuel gas-fired plant in Futila, with a capacity of 80 MW.
The group has accumulated ample experience in the execution of cogeneration projects for different types of industry and fired by different types of combustion (natural gas, fuel, biomass, etc).
The company is also prepared for the construction of thermosolar (CSP) plants.
