The Central Termoelectrica Andino power station is a proposed 150 megawatt (MW) coal-fired power station in Chile. The Environmental Defense Fund reports that "the new power station will use circulating fluidised bed technology that can burn biomass and other fuels, and will be the first coal unit to begin operations in Chile’s Sistema Interconectado del Norte Grande (SING) starting in 2010."
