This technology generates electricity by burning fuel.
To reduce the environmental impact of these plants, GPG is researching solutions to capture and store the CO2 emitted by its thermal plants.
GPG has a total of 190 MW in thermal power plants in the Dominican Republic.
Internal combustion engines
Our nearly 20 years of experience in the construction, operation and maintenance of internal combustion engine electricity plants in Africa (Madagascar) and Central America (Dominican Republic and Panama) can be considered a success story. We work with well-known technical firms such as Wärtsilä, MAN and Niigata, maintaining excellent relationships with all of them.
With a reduction in specific consumptions of oil and fuel thanks to scrupulous operations and maintenance, the plants we operate reach very high availability rates, maximising the performance of PPA-type contracts they are based on.
