Project Details

  • Sponsor: Tajín Energía, S. de R. L. de C. V.[1]
  • Parent company: Tajín Energía, S. de R. L. de C. V.[2]
  • Location: Tuxpan de Rodríguez Cano, Veracruz, Mexico
  • Coordinates: 20.9597, -97.4159 (approximate)[3]
  • Gross generating capacity (construction): 1146 MW
    • Unit 1: Gas-fired[1] combined cycle[1], 1146 MW[1] (start-up in 2020)[1]

Background

As of November 2018, Tajín Energía was planning to spend $850 million on the project -- $260 million allotted for the acquisition of generation equipment, $480 million for construction, and $110 million for financing.[4] Once operating, the power station is expected to have a use life of 25 years.[4] A coinciding gas pipeline will be constructed to go with the plant that is anticipated to have a flow of 185 MMPCD and will be approximately 150 meters long.[4] Additionally, the 42 inch gas pipeline will connect to the Sur de Texas-Tuxpan Gas Pipeline.[4] The project has received environmental approval from SEMARNAT.
