Mexico’s Federal Electricity Commission (CFE) and the Sener-OHL have signed the Provisional Acceptance Report for the Empalme I combined cycle plant.

The 770 MW power plant is one of the most efficient in CFE’s portfolio and was built by the Sener-OHL consortium under a turnkey engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract signed in 2015.

The plant is equipped with two gas turbines, two heat recovery steam generators and a single steam turbine. Sener-OHL was also responsible for building a cooling water intake facility for the Empalme I and II plants under the $477 million contract.
