Mexican-Canadian joint venture to develop power infrastructure in San Luis Potosi
Canadian developer ATCO partnered with Mexican counterpart RANMAN Energy to supply an innovative power generation solution in the rapidly developing World Trade Centre Industrial Park in San Luis Potosí, Mexico.
The project, developed through a joint venture, will deliver reliable onsite electricity to some of the 700-hectare park’s growing roster of industrial tenants and provide flexible, customized contracts to meet each customer’s operating needs.
“Our expertise developing integrated electricity infrastructure, paired with RANMAN Energy’s intimate knowledge of the Mexican market, allows us to deliver reliable and affordable power when and where our customers need it,” said in a press release Wayne Stensby, Managing Director, Electricity, ATCO.
The project, which includes a high-voltage substation, five modular natural gas-fired electricity generating units and an associated distribution network, will be completed in two phases. The amount of investment remains undisclosed.
With 4 megawatts (MW) of capacity currently available, the joint venture partners plan to expand this facility to up to 20 MW by December 2017. The project is also highly-scalable, and further capacity can be added as new tenants establish operations within the industrial park.
RANMAN Energy is a Mexican enterprise based in San Luis Potosi that specializes in developing energy infrastructure projects in Mexico.
