Siemens to Provide Long-Term Service for Gas Turbines in Mexico

Siemens today announced it has received an order to provide long-term service and maintenance for eight gas turbines at four power plants in Mexico. The contract period covers 16 years.

The turbines and related auxiliaries will be delivered to the Valle De Mexico, Empalme I, Emplame II, and Tula combined-cycle power plants in Mexico, which are owned by the state-run power provider Comisión Federal de Electricidad (CFE). Altogether, the plants will use six SGT6-8000H turbines and two SGT6-5000F units to generate a combined 2,727 MW of power.

“These long-term service programs will help ensure the availability and reliability of Mexico’s electricity supply for many years to come,” said Tim Holt, CEO, Siemens Power Generation Services, Power and Gas. “Siemens is fully dedicated to supporting CFE in modernizing its installed power generation capacity so it can compete in the market recently created in Mexico with the Energy Reform. It also strengthens Siemens’ presence in Mexico with our growing fleet of H-class gas turbines and the latest F-class equipment at the Tula plant.”

The plants will go online in 2017 and 2018.
