The two-unit Termosolo power station is proposed as part of a larger project involving construction of the Puerto Solo Energy Port, a new fuel import facility on Colombia's Pacific coast.[10][11] Once completed, the plant's two units are to receive LNG (liquefied natural gas) or LPG (liquefied petroleum gas) from the associated port.[12][10][11] As of December 2020, environmental permitting for the $194 million power plant was underway[13], and in January 2021 the Colombian government gave its final approval for construction of the port.[10] Fuel for the plant will be imported from the United States using project developer SeaOne Holdings' proprietary CGL™ (Compressed Gas Liquid) technology.[11][14]

Plans originally called for the plant to begin operating in December 2022[15][12], but a September 2021 filing by SeaOne Holdings to the U.S. Department of Energy indicated that commercial operations would begin no earlier than 2023[11], and a subsequent filing dated September 2022 pushed the date back to the fourth quarter of 2024.[16] A 230 kV transmission line will connect the power station to the grid.[13]
