Siemens wins turbine orders for Mexican combined-cycle power plant

German tech giant Siemens has won an order from a consortium between Duro Felguera, Elecnor and Elecnor Mexico to deliver turbines for 791MW Empalme II combined-cycle power plant in Sonora, Mexico.

The firm will also be offering technical assistance during construction and commissioning of the facility, for which the consortium is the engineering, procurement and construction contractor.

The project has an estimated worth of $397m (€363m) and will be equipped with two gas turbo-generator units, two heat recovery boilers with three pressure levels and a steam turbine.

Commissioning of the power plant is expected to be completed in April 2018, following which the state-owned energy giant Comisión Federal de Electricidad (CFE) will be in charge of its operations.

Besides 791MW Empalme II, the German conglomerate has won orders for six H-class gas turbines for the 770MW Empalme I and 615MW Valle de México II combined cycle power plants in Mexico, since early 2015, as well as a contract to deliver two SGT6-5000F gas turbines for the Tula plant in Hidalgo, Mexico.
