NUEVO PEMEX COGENERATION PROJECT

Kentech Mexico mobilised to the project site at the Nuevo Pemex Gas Processing Complex in southern Mexico to undertake the electrical erection works on behalf of Abengoa.

This US$ 450 million cogeneration plant project will produce the largest cogeneration power plant in Mexico.  The 300 megawatt gas fired facility will supply Nuevo Pemex with power and steam under a 20 year service agreement.  Powered by cleaner burning natural gas, the facility will help the Mexican government meet its commitment to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 50% below 2002 levels by the year 2050.  To help meet these objectives, the government is promoting combined heat and power, or cogeneration, as an energy efficient option.

Kentech's scope of work on this project included not only the usual cable tray, conduit and cabling, but also all MV and LV switchgear and the insulated bus duct systems.
