Spanish to English translations [PRO]
Tech/Engineering - Electronics / Elect Eng / Electrical specifications
Spanish term or phrase: central técnica
This is a term for some sort of electricity generating station, but what type? It comes from a set of regulations on electrical safety from Colombia.

It appears in a table of symbols, coming just after "Central de Generación en servicio" (generating station) and "Central Hidráulica en servicio" (hydroelectric station) and the full text for the symbol is "Central Técnica en servicio".

If it helps, the symbol for "Central de Generación" is a box with closely spaced diagonal lines and that for "Central Técnica" is a box with the bottom half identical to the "Central de Generación" and the top half white (blank).

Could it be a small station, a part time station...
