Steam lines going to the power plant snake across the surface of the Ahuachapán-Chipilapa geothermal field in western El Salvador. The field is located on the northern flank of the Sierra de Apaneca range 15 km from the Guatemala border. The Ahuachapán-Chipilapa field was the first to be developed in El Salvador and began production in 1975.
