It is estimated that the project will start operating in the first trimester of 2019 and the investment will be approximately $150 million.

The agreement related to the electricity supply contract with CAMMESA (Electricity Wholesale Market Administrator Company) has already been held and the project finance will be managed by KfW IPEX-Bank, Euler Hermes, the German Development Finance Agency (DEG) and the Dutch development bank Financierings-Maatschappij voor Ontwikkelingslanden (FMO).
