Huinala, Mexico


Monterrey, Mexico

140 MW

Mexico has amended its energy laws, creating a new electricity market and allowing the private sector to participate freely in the generation and sale of electricity. The new strategy targets private and international investors, thus changing the market situation. The new regulations pave way for independent power producer (IPP) projects that will help the Mexican energy sector to not only cover the national demand, but also export electricity to its neighbouring countries.

We chose engine technology for reliability and efficiency.
