Spanish term or phrase: turbinas aeroderivativas
This comes from a report about a power company that runs several power stations of different types, and the impact of drought on the company.

CONTEXT: "Adicionalmente, la compañía está más expuesta a un escenario hidrológico desfavorable, por cuanto su respaldo conformado por centrales de ciclo abierto o ***turbinas aeroderivativas***, en muchas circunstancias deberá operar con combustible diesel, que tiene un costo significativamente más elevado que el del gas natural."

Aeroderivative gas turbines for stationary power are adapted from their jet and turboshaft aircraft engine counterparts. While these turbines are lightweight and thermally efficient, they are usually more expensive than products designed and built exclusively for stationary applications. The largest aeroderivative generation turbines available are 40 to 50 MW in capacity. Many aeroderivative gas turbines for stationary use operate with compression ratios in the range of 30:1, requiring a high-pressure external fuel gas compressor. With advanced system developments, larger aeroderivative turbines (>40 MW) are approaching 45% simple-cycle efficiencies (LHV).
