Plant in Operation


Rurelec has a 50 per cent stake in Energia del Sur S.A. (“EdS”), which owns and operates a 136 MW Combined Cycle Gas Turbine (CCGT) power plant in Patagonia.

Plants under Development


Rurelec is developing Central Illapa S.A. (“Central Illapa”), a Chilean project company developing which has substantially completed the development of a 250 MW open cycle gas fired peaking plant in Mejillones, one of the key power hubs on the SING system of the Chilean power grid.

Following the receipt of environmental approval for the Central Illapa plant using Siemens 701 DU turbines, Rurelec acquired two fully refurbished turbines from IPSA Group PLC in June 2013.  Pending the conclusion of project financing, Rurelec is seeking a joint venture partner for the project.
