Mitsubishi Power Aero Delivers Vital Power Project to Mexico: RFP Issuance to Commercial Operation in 145 Days

Share

Mitsubishi Power Aero LLC, a leading provider of global power solutions, and Mitsubishi Power de Mexico, both subsidiaries of Mitsubishi Power Americas, Inc., executed a fast-track, turnkey contract to install and commission five 30-megawatt FT8® MOBILEPAC® aero-derivative, dual-fuel gas turbines for CFEnergia SA de CV (CFEN), a subsidiary of Mexico’s Federal Electricity Commission (CFE). The project, located in Mexicali, Baja California, delivers critical power in time for peak season. A sixth gas turbine will be added later to expand capacity and support next summer’s requirements.

Mitsubishi Power Aero has extensive experience helping customers solve their most urgent power generation needs by providing mobile generation equipment combined with in-house EPC expertise; the FT8 MOBILEPAC gas turbine package is ideally suited for rapid deployment to meet emergency power requirements. The additional power from these units offers peace of mind and energy security to the people and industries in Mexicali. Additionally, as Mexico works toward integrating intermittent renewable energy generation, these gas turbines will play an important role in supplying flexible, reliable, and mobile energy to bolster grid reliability and resilience.

“Although Mexicali has sufficient capacity to meet the region’s power requirements most of the year, there is a shortfall during peak season causing hardship for all who rely on a steady supply of electricity,” said Mitsubishi Power Aero Vice President of Sales and Business Development Harsh Shah. “The mobile generation units that Mitsubishi Power Aero installed will maintain dispatch security, reliability, quality, and continuity in the Baja Electric System. The MOBILEPAC unit’s reliable black start capability affords the ultimate safety net of on-demand power when the need arises.”

Mitsubishi Power Aero President and CEO Raul Pereda noted, “We are pleased that we were able to deliver critical power for CFEnergia on such a tight timeline. The FT8® MOBILEPAC® units are essential assets for Mexico. A compact footprint, minimal site prep, and no permanent foundations give CFE the flexibility to relocate them to other locations to support demand. With the addition of the MOBILEPAC units, CFE operates one of the largest FT8 fleets in the world, an expansion spurred by reliable operational performance and Mitsubishi Power Aero’s strong aftermarket service and support. We deliver power when the world needs it most.”

Better code with less effort through “eFMI” - the new model-exchange standard for embedded devices When developing a new function, many engineers learn the hard way that their outstanding knowledge about the physics of their products is not enough by far to develop a function for an embedded target, due to the demanding requirements of safety-critical software, weak CPU magnitude and less memory than expected. While this might result in a never-to-be-realised excellent initial idea of
