Central Vuelta de Obligado (CVOSA) is the sponsor of the project and expects an investment of more than $700 million, with Duro Felguera committing to $368 million.
As part of the contract, the joint venture has 32 months to complete the project. Duro Felguera will supply the engineering work, the balance of plant equipment, civil work, electrical and mechanical construction, assembly and decommissioning.
The plant will be located on the same site as the existing General San Martín plant, which was also built by Duro Felguera and brought into operations in June 2010.
