Mexico's energy minister has cut the ribbon on a 141MW co-generation plant in Coatzacoalcos in Veracruz, the largest in the Gulf coast state and the 14th of its kind to be built in Mexico since the 2014 energy reform.
Pedro Joaquín Coldwell said during the inauguration ceremony that, by producing heat and electricity, natural gas-fired co-generation plants are more efficient and reduce emissions by one half compared with oil- or coal-fired plants.
The co-generation plants built as a result of the energy reform have combined installed capacity of 432MW, 60% of which are located in Veracruz state. They are designed to feed the petrochemical and chemical industries.
