Natural gas from the US will fuel the plant, to be built in Monterrey city. Electricity will then be transmitted through Mexico to Guatemala for consumption.

Wärtsilä's Flexicycle plants combine a steam turbine with a gas, multi-fuel or liquid fuel power plant.

Earlier in the month, Guatemala and Mexico held their first working group meeting on the planned binational natural gas pipeline and signed accords to deepen energy cooperation.
