- It also starts early works for another combined cycle project in the Dominican Republic.
- Mexico’s Comisión Federal de Electricidad (CFE) has awarded a new contract for the development of two new natural gas combined cycle plants to the consortium formed by the Spanish companies Técnicas Reunidas and TSK, and the German Siemens Energy.
- Técnicas Reunidas and TSK will carry out the design and execution of the plants on a 50/50 basis and Siemens Energy will provide the turbine technology.
- The contract amount for Técnicas Reunidas is 337 million dollars.
- The contract will imply for Técnicas Reunidas 475,000 hours of work by specialized engineers over a period of just over a year.
- The new combined cycle plants, located in San Luis Rio Colorado and González Ortega, will have a capacity of 600 MW each and will contribute to the improvement and decarbonization of the Mexican electricity sector.
- In addition, Técnicas Reunidas, nominated as Preferred Contractor by Generadora San Felipe in the Dominican Republic, has signed a contract for the start of preliminary work on a combined cycle development project in Puerto Plata.
The public company Comisión Federal de Electricidad (CFE) of Mexico, the largest company in the electricity sector in Latin America, has awarded the development of two new natural gas combined cycle plants to the consortium formed by the Spanish companies Técnicas Reunidas and TSK, which will design and execute the plants on a 50/50 basis, and the German company Siemens Energy, which will provide the turbine technology.
These are the combined cycle plants in San Luis Rio Colorado and González Ortega, which will have a capacity of 600 MW each and will use high-efficiency gas turbines.
The contract amount for Técnicas Reunidas is 337 million dollars.<
The incorporation of more efficient electricity generation technology, based on natural gas, will allow Mexico to continue reducing the contribution of the most polluting electricity generation plants, which use heavy liquids as fuels, thus contributing to the decarbonization of the country’s electricity sector.
The activities to be carried out by the Spanish companies include engineering, supply (excluding the supply of gas and steam turbines and heat recovery boilers, which will be supplied by Siemens Energy), construction and commissioning of the two power plants.
The duration of the project is estimated at 38 months.
The engineering works, assumed in their entirety by Técnicas Reunidas, will require the contribution of some 475,000 hours of specialized engineers over a period of just over a year.
Start of early works on the San Felipe Generating Station in the Dominican Republic.
On the other hand, Técnicas Reunidas, nominated as Preferred Contractor by Generadora San Felipe for the development of a 400 MW combined cycle plant in the Dominican Republic, has signed a contract for the start of early works.
The project, based on advanced General Electric technology, will convert an old power plant by replacing liquid fuel with natural gas, which will substantially increase its energy efficiency and contribute to the decarbonization of the Dominican electricity system.
Its development includes the natural gas unloading facilities in the bay of Puerto Plata, in the north of the country.
The preliminary works contract, for approximately US$2 million, aims to advance the development of the project in parallel with the processing of the financial closing carried out by the client.
The conversion of these early works into a turnkey contract for the development of the complete execution of the project is subject to the client’s final decision, scheduled for the first half of 2022.
