First Mexican industries to take advantage of cogeneration since energy reform
Rolls-Royce has supplied power generation customers all over the world with system solutions based on medium-speed engines and currently boasts a global installed base of over 3,500 MWe. It recently entered Mexico’s energy market and has so far sold power plants to diverse customers delivering a total of 33 MWe.
The 18 MWe power plant in Sonora, owned by utility company Union Energetica del Noroeste (UEN), is equipped with two Rolls-Royce Bergen B35:40V20 gas-fuelled generator sets.
Markku Aspholm, Sales Director of Medium-Speed Engines for power generation in the Americas - Rolls-Royce said, “We will be establishing a new service workshop next year to better serve the needs of our newly won customers in Mexico. Rolls-Royce sees big potential for expanding its business in this region by supporting the industry with flexible system solutions tailored to the customer's individual needs.”
Having closed an EPC consortium agreement with engineering company Sampol Ingenieria y obras, Rolls-Royce’s first 18 MWe power plant based on medium-speed engines went into operation in June 2017 in Sonora, Mexico. The plant has now clocked up almost 2000 operating hours without any complications, even at 45°C. It is a cogeneration (CHP) plant owned by utility company Union Energetica del Noroeste (UEN), who sells the generated electricity onwards to various companies. The plant is equipped with two Rolls-Royce Bergen B35:40V20 gas-fuelled generator sets covered by a 12-year service agreement.

Another two CHP modules supplied by Rolls-Royce are scheduled for commissioning at the end of 2017/early 2018, and will be the first two power plants to have been supplied under Mexico's Energy Reform that came into force in 2016.
The first is a Rolls-Royce Bergen B35:40V20 gas-fuelled generator set that will be installed at an altitude of 2,300 metres in the Mexican city of Perote. It will be responsible for providing steam and electricity to power the industrial processes run by pork producer Granjas Carrol. Surplus energy will be sold to the national grid through the newly structured energy market.
The second is a Rolls-Royce Bergen B35:40V12 generator set to be installed in the trigeneration plant operated by energy service company INCO Renovables S.A.P.I. de C.V.. This particular plant is to provide electrical power, cooling water and steam to a factory being run by Coca Cola producer FEMSA.
