Siemens was awarded a contract to supply two SGT6-8000H gas turbines and two generators to Mexico. The components are to be installed at the Empalme I Combined Cycle Power Plant (CCPP) in Sonora, Mexico. The plant will have an installed power generating capacity of 770 MW in total. The customer is a consortium led by SENER which will act as turnkey EPC contractors for the project. The end customer and operator of the plant is the state owned utility Comisión Federal de Electricidad (CFE) in Mexico.
As Mark Twain would say, the reports are exaggerated.
The Keeyask Hydropower Limited Partnership (KHLP) broke ground on the 695-MW Keeyask Generating Station in northern Manitoba. The project is a collaborative effort between Manitoba Hydro and four Manitoba First Nations - Tataskweyak Cree Nation, War Lake First Nation, York Factory First Nation, and Fox Lake Cree Nation - working together as the KHLP. Manitoba Hydro provides administration and management services for KHLP and will own at least 75 per cent of the equity of the partnership.
