It was the most advanced scientific research program in the world in the field of deep geothermal EGS.
In 2016, the industrial phase of production was inaugurated with the construction of a new powerplant. It is able to produce 12,000 MWH per year, equivalent to the annual electricity consumption of 2,400 dwellings.
