Construction of divisive CCPP re-starts in Mexico

The construction of a controversial combined-cycle plant in Morelos in Mexico has been given the green light to re-start after the local community was convinced of the benefits it would bring to the area, NOTIMEX reports.

The government reassured the local population that the project would guarantee a safe and reliable supply of electricity and natural gas, which would both meet the needs domestic consumers, as well as encourage the economic development of the region.

The Comisiàƒ³n Federal de Electricidad (CFE) is in charge of the project.

The CCPP, which will have a generating capacity of 640 MW, is the CFE’s first project to increase power production in the Midwest of the country.
