Project Details

  • Sponsor: Pemcorp Energy, S.A.P.I. de C.V.[1]
  • Parent company: Arroyo Energy Investors Fund II, L.P.[2]
  • Location: Pesquería, Nuevo León, Mexico
  • Coordinates: 25.7927, -100.0576 (approximate)[3]

    • Unit 1: Gas-fired[1] plant powered by 7 Wärtsilä small engines[4], 143 MW[1] (start-up in 2018[4])


Pemcorp initially invested in the facility in October 2017 through the Arroyo Energy Investors Fund II.[5] The plant was constructed in under a year using Finnish technology from Wärtsilä.[4] Commercial operations began in October 2019.[6] As of July 2020, Arroyo Energy was expected to refinance the debt package associated with the plant.[6]

As of December 2022, the Pemcorp Energy plant is not included in GEM's Global Gas Plant Tracker, as it is powered by seven Wärtsilä engines[4] and does not meet the tracker's minimum threshold of 50 MW per unit.[7]
