Mexico's state power company CFE has awarded local firm IGSA a power plant project in Veracruz, according to federal procurement website Compranet.

The contract entails dismantling one gas-fired unit and gas measurement, regulation and control station at the 2.1GW Tuxpan plant, and the transfer of all equipment to Poza Rica for their reinstallation.

IGSA will provide and install a steam turbine to work in conjunction with three existing units at the Poza Rica plant, thus qualifying the plant as combined cycle.

The three units, which have combined capacity of 117MW, will also be rehabilitated and modernized, along with an existing substation and control systems.

Works under tender number 18164093-016-09 are due to begin March 31 and will take 890 days.
