Each thermal plant has an installed capacity of 200 MW, totaling 600 MW.
Gral. Rojo Thermal Plant
Longitude 60°16'55.27" W 200 MW nominal generation capacity Start Up: June 2017
It is located in a 7-hectare estate in General Rojo, 9 kilometers from National Route No. 9.
It is connected to the Argentine Interconnection System (SADI as per its acronym in Spanish) through a 132 kv transmission network operated by Transporte de Energía Eléctrica de la Provincia de Buenos Aires (TRANSBA). It is also connected to the Transportadora Gas del Norte S.A. (TGN) trunkline to be supplied.
Barker Thermal Plant
Longitude 59°27'5" W 200 MW nominal generation capacity Start Up: December 2017
It is located in a 12-hectare estate in Barker, Benito Juárez District, in the intersection of Provincial Route No. 80 and Provincial Route No. 74, 45 kilometers from the city of Tandil.
It dispatches electricity to the Argentine Interconnection System (SADI as per its acronym in Spanish) through a 132 kv transmission network operated by Transporte de Energía Eléctrica de la Provincia de Buenos Aires (TRANSBA). It serves the Barker-Olavarria high voltage line, and is connected to the General San Martín gas pipeline that belongs to Transportadora de Gas del Sur S.A. (TGS).
Villa María Thermal Plant
Longitude 63°10'24.42" W 200 MW nominal generation capacity Start Up: January 2018
It is located in an 8-hectare estate in the Industrial and Technological Park, in the district of Villa María, Córdoba.
It is connected to the Villa María substation through a 132 kV network operated by Empresa Provincial de Energía de Córdoba (EPEC), which allows dispatching energy to the national network. The plant serves the northern pipeline of Transportadora Gas del Norte S.A. (TGN).
Aimed at maximizing efficiency, the three plants are being expanded and converted from simple to combined cycle. Phase I of the project has been successfully completed with the addition of 150 MW, by 2020, once the conversion to combined cycle is fully achieved, MSU Energy will have an aggregate capacity of 750 MW.
MSU Energy has entrusted the engineering, construction and maintenance of the plants to a world leader in power generation technology.
The plants have 4 GE LM6000-PC Sprint turbines, with a nominal generation capacity of 50 MW each. Well-known in the industry for their high average availability, these turbines run on natural gas and diesel.
Based on the commitments assumed with CAMMESA ‑the Wholesale Electricity Market Administration Company‑, MSU Energy delivers 600 MW to the national electric system.
