Siemens is to provide equipment including its H-class turbines to a 615 MW combined cycle power plant being built in Mexico.
The Valle de México II plant in Acolman is scheduled for commercial operation in December 2017 and Siemens has won the order from an EPC consortium comprising Spanish companies Cobra Instalaciones y Servicios and Initec Energía and Mexico’s Avanzia Instalaciones.
Siemens will supply two SGT6-8000H gas turbines, one SST6-5000 steam turbine, three SGen-1000A generators as well as the SPPA-T3000 control system for the turbines.
The gas turbines, generators and steam turbine will be produced in Siemens’ Charlotte gas turbine manufacturing plant in North Carolina in the US.
The deal marks the second Mexican order for Siemens’ H-class power plant technology – in May it was awarded a contract to supply two SGT6-8000H gas turbines and two generators to the Empalme I combined cycle plant in Sonora.
