Siemens to build 250 MW CCGT in Mexico

Siemens has been awarded a contract for the turnkey construction of a 250 MW combined-cycle power plant in Mexico.
 
The customer is Minera Mexico, a subsidiary of Grupo Mexico, the country’s largest mining company and one of the world’s largest copper producers. The plant is scheduled to achieve commercial operation in the summer of 2013, at which point it will be able to supply electricity to the company’s copper mines.
 
Siemens will build the La Caridad combined cycle power plant with an installed capacity of 250 MW, which will be located in Sonora State, Mexico. Siemens will be responsible for the full turnkey supply of the plant, which includes engineering, procurement and construction of the plant.

The main equipment to be supplied to the plant includes the SGT6-5000F gas turbine, SST-900 steam turbine, electric generators, heat-recovery steam generator, and the complete electrical and SPPA-T3000 instrumentation & control equipment. Siemens also received a letter of intent from Minera Mexico for a long-term service agreement, which will provide Minera Mexico with reliable operation and maintenance of the plant.
