Siemens To Build Power Plant In Mexico
Siemens Energy has received a contract for the turnkey construction of a combined cycle power plant in Mexico. The customer is Minera Mexico, a subsidiary of Grupo Mexico, a mining company and copper producer.
The 250 MW La Caridad combined cycle power plant, which is scheduled for commercial operation in summer 2013 in Sonora State, Mexico, is designed to supply electricity to the company’s copper mines and help reduce Minera Mexico’s production costs, Siemens said.
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 for the plant includes the SGT6-5000F gas turbine, SST-900 steam turbine, electric generators, heat-recovery steam generator and the electrical and SPPA-T3000 Instrumentation & Control equipment, according to Siemens.
Siemens also received a Letter of Intent from Minera Mexico for a long-term service agreement, which will provide Minera Mexico with operation and maintenance of the plant, Siemens said.
