"Construction of a natural gas plant in Nagarote, next to ENATREL's Sandino Substation, which guarantees stability to the National Interconnected System (SIN) for the purchase and sale of electricity, the plant will generate 300 Mw, will contribute 2.233 million GWh annually, a liquefied gas terminal.

ENATREL facilitates interconnection with the Nicaraguan grid and the Sistema de Interconexion Electrica de los Países de America Central (SIEPAC).
The plant will install turbines with a capacity of 315 MW of power.

Natural gas-fired power plants are considered the cleanest fossil fuel power plants. By burning gas, the feedwater is heated, converted to steam and used to generate electricity. A more economical alternative with less environmental impact."

CentralAmericaData has information on planned construction projects in all Central American countries, with details such as estimated investment, project timing and phases, inputs and equipment that will be required during and after construction, water treatment, parking structure, among others.
