Background

The Tuxpan combined cycle plant uses Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems 501F gas turbines which were outfitted with MeeFog Wet Compression Systems to increase individual turbine output.[6] In early 2018 during a maintenance shutdown the plant was able to add on and increase overall generating capacity.[7]
