Siemens (NYSE: SI) received an order for two SGT6-5000F gas turbines and two SGEN6-1000 generators for installation in a power plant in Mexico.
The equipment will be used in two 1x1 configurations for the Tula 1 and 2 combined-cycle power blocks with an installed capacity of 550-MW. Avanzia is the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contractor that will build the plant for state-owned utility Comisión Federal de Electricidad (CFE).
The turbines and generators will be manufactured at a Siemens factory in North Carolina. The project is due for completion in summer 2017.
