This book aims to show the reader the main aspects you need to know before tackling the construction of an installation of an efficient and mature technology, without having to commit errors that have already committed to others.

So, book reviews the main equipment and systems to install, costs, assembly techniques and all aspects that must be taken into account to fulfil the objectives of cost, time and quality in the construction of a combined cycle.

The fundamental objective  of this book is show to the responsible of the construction of a central them best practices and them procedures that have given good results in works of construction of cycles combined, and indicate you also them errors in which not must fall.  An error in the construction, by small that is, always will have a cost normally high. If the mistake was foreseeable and could be avoided, in addition it becomes unacceptable.

The author seeks for sharing experiences and knowledge, with the objective that while construction managers employed in the reading of this book is profitable. The author wants with this work it worth to spend a couple of days to meet the problems which will face before falling in errors and inefficiencies that have already suffered others, and among them, the author himself.
