Iberdrola has been awarded the contract to build an 85 MW combined cycle gas-fired power plant in Mexico by the Mexican government.
The plant is to be sited in the municipality of Escobedo in the state of Nuevo León, which require an investment of $400m.
Under the contract, Iberdrola will construct, own, operate and maintain the gas-fired power generation plant which can generate electricity required to power 2 million consumers.
The Mexican Federal Electricity Commission (CFE) will purchase the power generated from the facility under 25-year power purchase agreement with fixed capacity charges.
Constriction work on the Noreste power plant is scheduled to be commenced in early 2016 and be completed in July 2018.
Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems (MHPS) will provide gas turbines and a steam turbine for the station, which will also feature Foster Wheeler-built boilers.
Iberdrola is planning to invest up to $5bn in the country over the next five years.
