Wartsila to start Monterey gas-fired power plant construction

Wärtsilä said it has received full notice to proceed from Energía del Caribe, for the supply of a 139 MW Flexicycle power plant to a site near Monterrey in Northern Mexico.

Construction will start immediately. The turnkey contract was signed in September 2014 and the power station is scheduled to be in commercial operation in April 2016. The fast-track delivery includes seven gas-fired Wärtsilä 50SG engines, the company said in a statement.

In this project, electricity will be exported through Mexico to Guatemala. The company will deliver approximately 950 GWh of electricity per year to the utilities Empresa Eléctrica de Guatemala and Energuate. To reach the target, the baseload power plant will run at full output for 24 hours a day.

The Monterrey project will double Wärtsilä’s capacity in Mexico to 280 MW. Wärtsilä’s total installed capacity in North America, Central America and the Caribbean is over 7000 MW.
