Construction of a 40 MW biomass plant.

Fuentes Renovables de Energia (FRESA), a joint venture between Grupo Insud and Grupo Benicio, is developing a 40 MW thermal biomass power plant on a 35.5-hectare site at San Alonso near the city of Gobernador Virasoro in the province of Corrientes. Construction of the US$60 million plant began at the beginning of August 2017.

The plant will use around 41,680 tonnes per month of pine and eucalyptus forest waste and timber industry residues as feedstock. All the biomass will be sourced from within a 100 km radius.

Of the 40 MW of power generated, 36 MW will be transferred by high voltage lines to connect to the Rincón Santa María network. The remaining 4 MW will be exclusively for internal use.

Grup Insud subsidiary Pomera Maderas will supply approximately 50% of the biomass required.
