As part of the activities carried out by the Bií Hioxo Wind Farm’s community development area (Laanu Group), a link was established with the Binu Gada Primary School in Juchitán to carry out environmental education through educational workshops.
The activities financed by the Oaxaca-Mexican Wind Energy Association (AMDEE) Reconstruction Fund, which the Bií Hioxo Wind Farm is involved in, saw the launch of the Diploma for the training and accreditation of professional skills for the management of post-traumatic stress at the facilities of the Isthmus of Tehuantepec Institute of Higher Studies of (IESIT).
As part of its corporate responsibility policy, Bií Hioxo has made a commitment to help its owners and employees following the earthquake on the Isthmus of Tehuantepec in September. This support will be used to facilitate the reconstruction of homes following the earthquake that has been since followed by several aftershocks.
The Combined-Cycle Power Plants of Global Power Generation in Mexico continuously operate with very high capacity factors due to a certain level of surplus capacity; i.e. the difference between the maximum output that can be produced and the long-term contracted power contract with the Comisión Federal de Electricidad (CFE).
In January 2017, GPG received permission to launch operations in the Mexican market with 30 MW of power from the Norte Durango Combined Cycle Power Plant, a facility that began operating commercially in August 2010. Its construction, which began in early 2008, led to a transformation in Durango by being one of the largest construction projects undertaken in the State.
