Combined Cycle

Union Fenosa granted CCGT approval

Spain’s economy and finance ministry has approved a proposal by Union Fenosa to build an 800 MW gas-fired, combined-cycle plant at Arteixo near La Coruna in the northwest Galicia region, made up of two 400 MW units. Both units will be completed by the third quarter of 2006. Gas will be supplied via the Reganosa LNG import terminal currently under construction at nearby Mugardos. Union Fenosa said in its latest strategic plan it expected to have 2.4 GW of net domestic CCGT capacity by 2007.
