  • The number of workers onsite peaked at more than 1300 during the construction phase and 91 highly-qualified, permanent operation and maintenance jobs created.

Abengoa, who will be responsible for the operation and maintenance of the plant, owns 70 % of the two newly inaugurated plants while ITOCHU controls the remaining 30 %.
