New cogeneration power project in Mexico delivers clean energy

ATCO Durango Mexico MapDelivering clean, sustainable energy is important for our customers around the world. As Mexico advances its ambitious goal of sourcing 50 per cent of the country’s electricity from clean sources by 2050, we’re doing our part to get them there.  

In partnership with RANMAN Energy we’re building the La Laguna Cogeneration Facility, a new 26-megawatt (MW) cogeneration project on the site of a Chemours Company chemical facility. Located near the city of Gómez Palacio in the northern state of Durango, the project will consume excess gas and reuse steam produced by the host facility’s chemical processes, making it a highly efficient and low-carbon means of generating on-site energy.

“Industrial customers in Mexico are increasingly looking to our global expertise to develop creative solutions that allow them to capitalize on the country’s energy market reforms,” said Wayne Stensby, Managing Director, Electricity with ATCO. “Our latest project ensures Chemours has access to the reliable electricity and steam it needs to run its operations, while also providing low carbon electricity back to the market.”

The project is expected to be operational in the second quarter of 2019.

Expanding our service in Mexico

Fostering our partnership with RANMAN Energy continues to be increasingly important as we play an active role in Mexico’s energy transition.

In early 2017, we partnered with RANMAN Energy to develop a highly scalable distributed power generation solution in the World Trade Centre Industrial Park in San Luis Potosí. Recently, we also closed the acquisition of Electricidad del Golfo, which owns a 35 MW hydroelectric power station in the state of Veracruz.
