Dominican Republic Adds to Power Capacity With New Gas-Fired Plant

The first phase of a new natural gas-fired power plant has been brought online in the Dominican Republic (DR), a project designed to support demand for electricity across the island nation.

The SIBA Energy plant, located in Boca Chica in Santo Domingo province, is owned by a consortium led by SIBA Energy Corp. The group includes the Haina Electricity Generating Co.
