Backwards Step for 670 MW Gas Plant

The National Public Services Authority has canceled the license it had granted to the Panama NG Power to build and operate a thermoelectric generation plant in Colón, Panama.

Wednesday, December 20, 2017

Ending a process that lasted more than seven years, the National Public Services Authority has permanently canceled the license that had granted to Panama NG Power S.A. to build a thermoelectric plant with an installed capacity of 670 MW.
