Lack of Proper Infrastructure Boosts Genset Power Provision

The need to rapidly increase electricity production means that both Argentina and Chile will encounter major power generation issues. Due to funding issues, inconsistent policies, and other project implementation barriers, the programs for power expansion are frequently postponed. Hence, power generation capacity shortfall results in the potential for genset-based electricity production. Cummins and Finning (Caterpillar and Olympian) and the main competitors engaged in the genset markets of Argentina and Chile. Local assemblers such as CETEC and Palmero gained market share as a result of import restrictions and their own production of genset components integrated to imported engines.

Executive Summary

• The need to rapidly increase electricity production in both Argentina and Chile encounter major power generation issues. Due to funding issues, inconsistent policies, and other project implementation barriers, programs for power expansion are frequently postponed.
• The power generation capacity shortfall results in the potential for genset-based electricity production. The effect should be cushioned in Argentina from 2013 with the coming into operation of Atucha II, and in Chile the installation of X MW for centralized power generation by 2016.
• Cummins and Finning (Caterpillar and Olympian) and the main competitors engaged in the genset markets of Argentina and Chile.
• Local assemblers, such as CETEC and Palmero, gained market share as a result of import restrictions and their own production of genset components integrated into imported engines.
• Product commoditization is usual, especially in gensets below X MW.

CEO’s Perspective

1. Both Argentina and Chile experienced power shortages as a result of an on-going gap between electricity demand and generation.

2. Distribution channels for genset sales depend on customer power needs and applications.

3. A slight upturn of GDP in 2013 could lead to an increase in genset demand.

4. High demand for equipment could also result from continuous blackouts or industrial activity growth.

5. Production capacity is still limited in both countries, although Argentina features manufacturing facilities.
