intermediate generating station/powerhouse


Explanation:
No me especializo en este campo, pero para central de generación encontrás varios términos en diferentes diccionarios: generating station / power house, power plant , power station, etc.
Lo de intermediate se me ocurrió para "de paso" pero no estoy segura de si interpreté bien el sentido de la frase original.

Explanation:
without more context, it is not possible to be sure, but I have "paso" as "flow angle", so it seems likely. Check the site below.
