Customer stories

Moving fast in Argentina

The Renewable Energy Auction Programme of Argentina (RenovAr) has been a three-part initiative aimed at boosting renewables electricity generation. 

1,300 MW

total output (on project completion)

280,000+

homes powered (electrical equivalent)

Under the program the Argentine government tendered 59 projects to generate 2.4 GW of power. Complementing these additions are new gas-fired plants and Argentina’s Fast Power tender aimed to displace expensive and inefficient generating capacity.

Among those projects: a simple cycle (to be converted to a combined cycle) plant to join two others at YPF Luz’s Generación Tucumán Complex.

In just 16 months, GE designed, delivered, built, and commissioned a 261 MW simple cycle gas-fired power plant for YPF Luz. Featuring GE’s 9F.04 gas turbine, the plant provides enough electricity to power more than 280,000 homes. With the project’s time, quality, and performance goals met, work has now begun on the plant’s combined cycle conversion.
