Mexican plant to run on imported gas and export power

Finland's Wartsila is to build a gas-fired power plant with an international impact in Mexico. The gas to be used will come from the US, while the plant's power will be exported to Guatemala.

This project involving three countries will be possible thanks to the energy reform approved by the Mexican government, according to a Wartsila Mexico senior official commenting in local newspaper El Economista.

The station will feature seven combined-cycle 50SG turbines, which will produce 139 MW. The project will take Wartsila to a capacity of approximately 7000 MW across the Americas.
