ROME -- Enel S.p.A. (Enel), acting through its renewable energy subsidiary Enel Green Power México (EGPM), has started the construction of the 93 MW Salitrillos wind farm, the company’s first plant in the north-eastern Mexican state of Tamaulipas. The overall investment in the construction of the facility amounts to approximately $120 million, which is part of the investment outlined in Enel’s current Strategic Plan.

Salitrillos, located in the municipality of Reynosa, is expected to enter into service by 2019. Once fully operational, the wind facility will be able to generate around 400 GWh annually. The construction site of Salitrillos will be based on Enel’s "Sustainable Construction Site" model, incorporating the rational use of resources, such as water saving systems and recycling processes.

The wind farm will be supported by a contract providing for the sale to Mexico’s Federal Electricity Commission (Comisión Federal de Electricidad, CFE) of both specified volumes of energy over a 15-year period and the related clean certificates over a 20-year period.

Enel was recently awarded four wind farms for a total capacity of 593 MW in Mexico’s third long-term public tender since its energy reform. Three plants, Amistad II and Amistad III with a total installed capacity of 100 MW each, and Amistad IV with an installed capacity of 149 MW, will be built in Acuña, in the northern State of Coahuila. The 244 MW Dolores facility will be built in China, a municipality in the northeastern State of Nuevo León.

BADEN, Switzerland -- Aligning with Mexico’s Ministry of Energy’s National Electric System Development Program (PRODESEN) 2017-2030 plan, GE’s Power Services business signed long-term agreements with a consortium formed by Macquarie Capital and Techint valued at approximately over $330M. The Multi-Year Agreements (MYA), include two fully integrated contracts, including an Operation and Maintenance (O&M) agreement and a Contractual Service Agreement (CSA), these together will provide 25 years of total plant services solutions for the 907 megawatts (MW) Norte III power plant, located in the municipality of Ciudad Juárez, in the state of Chihuahua, Mexico. Overall transaction has been recognized with the prestigious "2017 LatAm Power Deal of the Year" award by Thomson Reuters’ Project Finance International.

At the start of 2015, Mexico’s Federal Electricity Commission (CFE) commissioned the development of a combined-cycle power plant just south of Ciudad Juarez in the State of Chihuahua, Mexico, to help meet the growing need for electricity in the region. The Chihuahua region is identified in the PRODESEN 2017-2030-the 15-year infrastructure development program for Mexico’s national electric system-as a "deficient node," given its expected growth in the next decade.

During its peak construction period, Norte III will employ approximately 2,000 workers and is expected to provide electricity to more than 500,000 houses in Mexico once completed. During commercial operation Norte III will provide for highly specialized on-going jobs including power plant staffing and additional maintenance staff during outages for 25 years.

"Macquarie continues to look for opportunities to leverage its global expertise in infrastructure, energy and project financing to address highly complex situations and develop creative solutions that work for all stakeholders, and such was the case in Norte III" said Rob Kupchak, Americas Head of Infrastructure and Energy for Macquarie Capital. "GE was chosen to accompany us in this important Project because of its reliable technology and full-service solution."

Under the terms of the 25-year agreement, GE will utilize its Fleet360* platform of total plant solutions for the Norte III plant which operates on four of GE’s 7F.04 gas turbines as well as two Toshiba steam turbines. The platform also provides a full spectrum of digital solutions and plant improvement services, regardless of which original equipment manufacturers (OEM) generation equipment they have installed.

"Our total power plant services solution provides greatly improved risk mitigation while offering capacity and efficiency guarantees tailored to meet Macquarie - Techint Consortium‘s needs" said Terrence Schoenborn, General Manager of GE Power Services’ Global Operation & Maintenance (O&M) business. "At GE, we’re committed to our customers and their outcomes. We’re sharing both the benefits and risks with Macquarie by guaranteeing the performance of the facility and sharing the impact of any unplanned maintenance."

As part of the solution, GE’s Predix-based Asset Performance Management (APM) and Operations Optimization (OO) software applications will be deployed to apply advanced data analytics to predict and eliminate unplanned downtime, and improve power plant productivity. GE’s software which is built on Predix, and was purpose-built to meet the scale, complexity, speed and security requirements of the industry, will provide direct support to the GE O&M team in achieving the guaranteed capacity outcome.

"With O&M agreements like this that can be coordinated or combined with a CSA, we can prevent conflicts or gaps in scope and operate and maintain the power plant for our customers, taking the burden off their shoulders" continued Terrence Schoenborn. "With our services, cross-fleet experience and digital capabilities, we can help companies like Macquarie maximize the potential of their overall plant operations, ultimately helping them meet growing energy demands and ever-evolving challenges."

GE began its operations in Mexico in 1896. Mexico has the third largest 7F and 7H install base in the world. GE’s 16,000-square-meter Morelia Service Center, located in Morelia, Michoacán, Mexico, provides maintenance, testing and repair solutions for the Latin American region and will help ensure Macquarie gets the best and quickest possible repairs.

MADRID -- Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy has signed two orders in the U.S. for the supply of 95 of its G132-3.465 MW wind turbines totaling 330 MW. Once both wind farms are completed, they can produce enough energy to power over 100,000 average U.S. homes.

Siemens Gamesa will supply 47 G132-3.465 MW wind turbines for the Midway Wind project, located in San Patricio County, Texas. The project was awarded by Apex Clean Energy and recently acquired by Sammons Renewable Energy. The order also includes a 10-year, full scope service and maintenance agreement, and is slated to be completed in late 2018.

Once installed, the Midway project increases Siemens Gamesa's presence in Texas to over 2,000 wind turbines, totaling more than 4 GW across more than 30 projects. This is the fourth project that Siemens Gamesa has partnered on with Apex.

The second project with an undisclosed customer will feature 48 G132-3.465 MW wind turbines and is scheduled for commissioning in 2019. This project represents the first U.S. order for this specific turbine.

The G132-3.465 MW wind turbine features an output of 3.465 megawatts and a rotor diameter of 132 meters, making it one of the most efficient and cost-effective solutions for medium wind sites.

With more than 150 project sites across 32 U.S. states and its territories, Siemens Gamesa has installed more than 17 GW in the U.S., enough energy to power over five million average homes.
