A commissioning team of technicians and supervisors was immediately activated, arriving in Guaminí the weekend before Christmas. Two Energyst engineers then also made the 500 kilometre journey from Buenos Aires, arriving on the evening of December 23rd. Their task was to keep the plant operating once testing was completed. The challenge was considerable, given the short time available to complete the installation before Christmas. A local TV company even arrived at the scene, expecting a last minute news story. However, determined to re-stabilise the town’s power supply, our team pulled out all the stops. Four Caterpillar XQ2000 generator sets, four power transformers and two external fuel tanks were used to supply 5 MW / 13.2 kV of continuous power that was connected to the national grid that same evening. With the plant generating non-stop power, the town slowly came back to life. Final adjustments were made the next morning and the solution has been providing uninterrupted power to the town and its surrounding areas ever since.
