Background

The power station is a joint venture between Fisterra Energy (Blackstone Group) and Grupo DeAcero for a duration of 20 years.[5] Construction began in 2019 with an expected commercial operation start date of 2022.[4] In September 2020, Fisterra Energy, the subsidiary of Blackstone Group working on the project, was contemplating selling their assets in Mexico which would put the development of the Energía de Celaya at risk.[6] As of 2021 the project is still listed on the company website.[7]
