Power generation technologies

We hold a leading position in the markets where we operate. We have extensive knowledge of all power generation technologies and of the infrastructure capable of adapting to the needs of every energy model and reality present in each country. 

Electricity generation is subdivided into the ordinary regime (hydraulic, nuclear, coal, fuel-oil and gas combined cycles technologies) and the special regime (wind, co-generation and photovoltaictechnologies).For the latter, the company owns its subsidiary company dedicated to renewables.
