Son Llatzer is a hospital situated in Palma de Mallorca (Balearic Islands, Spain) that gives public health assistance to more than 200.000 patients per year with a staff of more than 1500 people.

In 2011 in the surrounding area of Son Llàtzer a tri-generation plant for electricity was installed to supply the hospital and other facilities. The tri-generation plant supplies hot water for air conditioning and sanitary water, and cold water only for air conditioning.

The production of hot water is made by a combined heat and power (CHP) engine (3 MWt and 3.2 MWe), four fuel boilers (three of 2 MWt and one of 1 MWt for potable hot water). As for the cold water production, the plant has one absorption chiller (that uses the CHP hot water; 1766 kW) and six electrical chillers (four of 1300 kW and two of 900 kW).
