Energía del Pacífico is dedicated to empowering a clean energy future for El Salvador.
Located in the Municipality of Acajutla, Sonsonate, the 378-megawatt project is an LNG-to-power facility that will supply approximately 30% of the energy demand of El Salvador and contribute to the diversification of the country’s energy mix through new clean energy generation and reduced reliance on heavy fuel oil and imported diesel.
The transformative infrastructure project brings approximately $1 billion foreign direct investment for El Salvador.
U.S.-based Invenergy is the majority shareholder of EDP and has led the development of the project in partnership with El-Salvador based partners Grupo Calleja, VC Energy de Centroamerica and Quantum Energy.
Leading global financial institutions—US International Development Finance Corporation, International Finance Corporation, IDB Invest, Finnish Export Credit Ltd and KfW IPEX-Bank—are lenders to the project.
Construction commenced in early 2020, and the project is scheduled for completion in 2022.
