In March 2021, the port of Tampico received a combined cycle gas turbine and an electric power generator which required special receiving protocol due to their weight before being transferred over land to Tamazunchale II.[9] In October 2021, Transportes Muciño moved components from the port of Tampico to the construction site.[10]

The Tamazunchale II power plant began operating in May 2022.[11]
