Mexican Power Customer Chooses MAN B&W Again

View of the La Paz power plant

Comisión Federal de Electricidad (CFE) – the Mexican state-owned electric utility – has awarded Spanish contractor, Acciona – the engineering and construction conglomerate – the turnkey contract for the extension of a diesel power plant at La Paz, Baja California Sur. The contract covers the installation of an MAN B&W 12K80MC-S9 engine at the plant.

MAN Diesel & Turbo reports the order as significant for being the fifth two-stroke MAN B&W unit to be installed at the Baja California Sur plant. CFE’s La Paz plant already has a single 10K90MC-S and 3 × 12K80MC-S engines, offering a total current output of 172.5 MW. At 47.88 MW, the newer 12K80MC-S9 version’s output will be 5 MW higher than its 12K80MC-S predecessor, while also possessing a lower heat rate.
