Siemens has received an order to supply two SGT6-8000H gas turbines and two SGen6-2000H generators for the Empalme II combined cycle power plant in Sonora, Mexico. The plant will have an installed electrical capacity of 791 megawatts (MW). The customer is a consortium consisting of the Spanish engineering and construction companies Duro Felguera and Elecnor and the Mexican subsidiary Elecnor Mexico. The operator of the plant will be the state-owned power provider Comisión Federal de Electricidad (CFE). Commercial operation is scheduled for April 2018. Additionally, Siemens will provide technical assistance during construction and commissioning of the plant. Since the spring of 2015, Siemens has received orders for six H-class gas turbines from Mexico.

A total of six model SGT6-8000H gas turbines are to be installed in the Empalme I (770 MW), Empalme II (791 MW) and Valle de México II (615 MW) combined cycle power plants. Siemens is also supplying two SGT6-5000F gas turbines for the Tula plant located in Hidalgo, Mexico. These four power plants have a combined electrical capacity of 2,727 MW, enough to supply one million households in Mexico with electricity. Siemens has sold 76 H-class gas turbines worldwide to date. The SGT-8000H fleet, with 16 units currently in successful commercial operation, has already achieved more than 195,000 fired hours.
