The supply is made for Tamoin that builds two cogeneration plants under the turnkey mode for Iberdrola in Mexico. The contract, forwarded from AEG Power Solutions’ Alava factory, is comprised of a set of uninterruptible power supplies and rectifiers-battery chargers.
AEG Power Solutions, a global provider of industrial power supply systems and renewable energy solutions, has delivered complete equipment to ensure the electrical supply of two turnkey cogeneration plants being built by engineering firm Tamoin in Altamira and Bajío Mexico for Iberdrola, the Spanish electricity services multinational.
The projects will have a combined generation capacity of approximately 100 megawatts (MW), the equivalent power needed to supply some 500,000 Mexican households.
To equip both facilities, the Protect 8 3-phase output equipment will be supplied, under a contract that was secured by AEG Power Solutions’ Alava subsidiary. The Protect 8 range is state-of-the-art double-conversion UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supply) system. It is a robust and cost-effective solution designed for demanding applications that ensures safe operation in hostile environments.
Two Iberdrola´s cogeneration plants in Mexico
The Altamira cogeneration plant (in the state of Tamaulipas) will contribute to reducing the energy costs of a chemical plant and the one in Bajío (state of Querétaro) will do the same for a plant for the production of hygiene products.
The Altamira cogeneration plant includes gas turbines and steam condensation turbines with two extractions. It will provide a total of 60 megawatts (MW) of power, divided into 51 MW of power supplied by the gas turbines group and 9 MW supplied by a condensing steam turbine with low and medium pressure extractions.
The Iberdrola cogeneration plant at Bajío in the city of San Juan del Río, Querétaro, is also a combined cycle plant with gas turbines and vapor condensation with medium pressure extraction. The plant, located in an industrial complex, will generate up to 54.2 megawatts (MW) of power.
Iberdrola awarded the Tamoin Group the two plants construction and commissioning through a 66 million euro contract of 18 months duration. Sources from the company have explained to EnergyNews that the works progress according to schedule so that it is expected to enter into operation this year since main elements such as turbines or boilers are already assembeld or finalizing assembly.
