GE gas turbines to power Mexico’s Alpek cogeneration project

GE (NYSE: GE) LM6000 aeroderivative gas turbine technology has been selected for the Alpek gas-fired cogeneration project at its subsidiary Petrotemex’s site in Cosoleacaque, Veracruz, Mexico.

Supporting a Mexican government initiative to encourage more efficient power generation, the plant will produce more than 85 MW of electricity and all the site’s steam requirements.

GE’s aeroderivative gas turbine business will supply two LM6000-PF gas turbine generator packages to a joint venture including Schrader Camargo of Mexico and Sener of Spain, who are the engineering, procurement and construction contractors for the project.

Announced earlier this month at the GE-CONCAMIN Cogeneration Forum, the Alpek cogeneration plant will operate at 85% thermal efficiency and is due to begin commercial service in the first quarter of 2014.

The LM6000-PF units for Alpek will feature DLE technology, which does not use water and guarantees low emissions.
