Spain’s Iberdrola is furthering its interest in Mexico’s power generation with a $400m investment in a new combined-cycle power plant.
When built the 887 MW plant, locatedin Los Mochis in the northwestern state of Sinaloa, will bring to 8,000 MW the extent of capacity developed by the company in the Latin American country by 2019.
As well as building the plant, Iberdrola will provide the power lines and transformer substation required for the facility.
The plant’s gas turbines will be supplied by Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems (MHPS).
Iberdrola is currently building six other plants in Mexico with a combined investment of roughly $2bn. The energy projects include three new combined-cycle gas power plants (Baja California III, Dulces Nombres II and Escobedo) and three cogeneration plants
