The two power plants showcase the latest technology in mobile gas turbines, and, together with the additional 100 MW of turbines installed by APR Energy last July, now boost Uruguay’s electricity production capacity by a total of 300 MW.
Through the fast-track deployment, eight mobile turbines travelled via a mix of ocean and air freight to meet a tight operational schedule. The full turnkey 150 kV, 100 MW solution at Punta del Tigre went into operation in May, bringing APR Energy’s total capacity at the site to 200 MW.
The 100 MW plant at La Tablada, which became operational in April, includes 150 kV substation equipment for protection and metering. Both sites utilize demineralized water solutions to comply fully with Uruguay’s strict emissions standards.
APR Energy has now completed over 440 MW of fast-track turbine installations in Japan, Uruguay and Martinique, with an additional 250 MW project underway in Libya.
