MADRID - Siemens Gamesa continues to reinforce its leadership in Mexico, where it has ranked as the number-one OEM in recent years, with a new order1 for the supply of 76 MW.

More specifically, the company has entered into an agreement with the independent developer, Fuerza y Energía Limpia de Tizimín, for the installation over the course of this year of 36 of the firm's G114-2.1 MW turbines at the Tizimín wind farm being developed in the state of Yucatán, which is scheduled for commissioning in 2018. The agreement also encompasses the operation and maintenance of the turbines for five years.

Siemens Gamesa will use a new technique for the foundations, namely braces (a concrete base akin to a plinth). This solution, deployable when a wind farm meets certain conditions, increases the turbines' output by increasing the height of the hub by up to 5 meters. This in turn brings down the facility's overall cost of energy and delivers design flexibility in terms of tailoring the blueprints for the terrain.

This is the first agreement entered into between the two companies in Mexico, having already fulfilled a 100-MW order in Uruguay.

ROME - Enel, through its Brazilian renewable subsidiary Enel Green Power Brasil Participações (EGPB), has begun operation of its Cristalândia wind farm, which has a total installed capacity of 90 MW. The facility is located in the municipalities of Brumado, Rio de Contas and Dom Basilio, in Brazil’s north-eastern state of Bahia.

The Group invested approximately $190 million in the construction of Cristalândia, which was awarded to EGPB through the Leilão de Fontes Alternativas (LFA) public renewable energy auction in April 2015. The wind project is supported by 20-year power purchase agreements with a pool of Brazilian electricity distribution companies.

The wind farm is capable of generating around 350 GWh per year, enough to meet the annual energy consumption needs of more than 170,000 Brazilian households while avoiding the emission of about 118,000 tonnes of CO2 into the atmosphere.

In line with the Creating Shared Value (CSV) model adopted by the Group, which aims to combine business development and local community needs, EGPB has carried out a set of CSV initiatives in the areas neighbouring the plant, such as creative recycling workshops with local communities, enabling income generation through the reuse of materials used in the plant’s construction, including pallets transformed into furniture and tarp used to produce handcrafts to be sold in the local market.

In the state of Bahia, Enel Group’s subsidiary EGPB currently operates a total of 711 MW of wind and solar capacity and is building an additional 600 MW of projects in these two renewable technologies.

In Brazil, the Enel Group, through its subsidiaries EGPB and Enel Brasil, has a total installed renewable capacity of 1,659 MW, of which 490 MW from wind power, 279 MW from solar PV and 890 MW from hydropower, as well as close to 900 MW of capacity currently in construction, of which 352 MW from wind and 541 MW from solar power.

JOHANNESBURG, South Africa - Technology available today can be employed to create reliable, sustainable, localized and more efficient energy networks. That was the message that George Njenga, GM, Steam Power Systems for Sub Saharan Africa delivered to delegates while making his keynote address at the opening session of this year’s Power-Gen Africa and DistribuTech event in Johannesburg. The electricity industry in Africa is undergoing massive transformation and the old linear model of conducting electricity affairs is being challenged and tested, as new models are emerging with far reaching impact. GE has been partnering with energy stakeholders to deploy innovative technologies tailored to respond to the needs of the region. In South Africa, GE is deploying smarter, cleaner, steam technology solutions at the Medupi and Kusile Power plants. This super-critical steam technology ensures efficiency at the power plant that will reduce operating costs over the lifetime of the plant, while reducing CO2 emissions by up to two percent. In Angola, the government is using GE’s TM2500 mobile power plants and containerized balance of plant equipment to achieve its additional electric power generation targets of 2 gigawatts and bringing fast, efficient power to its citizens. These units differentiate on speed, low emissions and fast start-up. In Ghana, GE’s high efficiency fuel-flexible-heavy-duty gas turbines are being deployed by the government to address the country’s growing energy needs. These rugged machines can burn more than 50 types of fuels giving Ghana great flexibility on available fuels. On the digital front, GE’s Predix based Asset Performance Management (APM) software, is being deployed in new and existing installations across the region. This software leverages data analytics to monitor power generation and transmission equipment health to predict potential failures and thereby reduce unplanned downtime by up to 5 percent, lower operations and maintenance costs, and lower operational risks. Developing reliable power supplies across the continent is a global priority and a critical necessity to ensure Africa can reach its economic and human potential. PowerGen and DistribuTech brings together utilities, financiers and energy leaders from across the region to discuss and develop technical knowledge in the field of electricity generation, transmission and distribution.
