Aperçu du projet


The Paco plant is a 300MW coal-fired power station with seawater cooling consisting of 2 x 150MW turbines.  This plant will provide base load to the Panamanian national grid and supply the Cobre Panama mine and mineral processing plant. The site is 120km west of Panama City, remote from local support and presenting challenging logistics as well as climatic conditions.  The site has required development of access, full port facilities, coal handling, and complete power station construction along with local camp, administration and warehousing.
