Mitsubishi Hitachi Systems Picked For Mexico Power Project

05 May 2016

Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems Americas (MHPSA) signed a contract with Spain-based Iberdrola SA to supply two J-series gas turbines, a steam turbine and long term service agreement (LTSA) for a power plant project in Mexico.

The contract signing came only days after Iberdrola signed a 25-year agreement with the Mexican Comisión Federal de Electricidad (CFE) to build, own, and operate the 890 MW Noroeste Power Plant. Located in Los Mochis, Sinaloa, Mexico, the combined cycle plant is expected to be online in 2019.

The power plant will be equipped with two MHPS M501J gas turbines, each rated at 327 MW, and one MHPS TC4F steam turbine. The award also includes a long-term service agreement. MHPSA said this is the second consecutive CFE Independent Power Producer (IPP) project to be awarded to Iberdrola based on the J-Series technology; the first was for the CFE Escobedo Power Plant near Monterrey, Mexico in October 2015.

“Both utilities and IPP’s have embraced the best-selling M501J gas turbine because of its unique combination of industry-leading combined cycle efficiency approaching 62%, and proven reliability in excess of 99%,” said Miguel Vallejo, President of Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems de Mexico, S.A. de C.V. “Iberdrola is a very important player in the Mexican Energy sector and worldwide, not only as producer but also as a technology developer, and now a strategic partner for MHPSA. Iberdrola’s selection of the J-technology was strongly influenced by CFE’s desire for proven operational experience and industry leading performance,” added Vallejo.
