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).
The engineering subsidiary of Global Power Generation (GPG), GNF Ingeniería y Desarrollo de Generación (GNFidg), has been awarded two new projects in Mexico and Honduras.
The engineering subsidiary of Global Power Generation (GPG), GNF Ingeniería y Desarrollo de Generación (GNFidg), began 2017 by being awarded a new contract for engineering services to third parties.
Our goal is to prioritise safety by maintaining the five basic principles established in the “Health and Safety Commitment” at the forefront of everyone’s minds: nothing is more important than health and safety; every accident can be avoided; safety is a management responsibility; it is also an individual responsibility; and all work should be planned and carried out with safety in mind.
GPG (with 85% of the investment) and Gran Solar (GRS) have signed a turnkey contract for the design, procurement and construction of the two photovoltaic power plants in Sertal and Sobrao (Brazil).
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.
Global Power Generation was subject to an extraordinary audit by the Spanish Standardisation and Certification Association (AENOR) and was awarded certifications of ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001 standards.
The Naco Nogales Combined Cycle Power Plant, located in the city of Agua Prieta in the north of the State of Sonora (Mexico), has launched a new online project to train its emergency team members.
Prevention is one of the main key strategic action areas for Global Power Generation, which is mainly aimed at eradicating workplace accidents and respecting the health of all those working at facilities managed by GPG.
Global Power Generation (GPG) has acquired a majority stake (85%) in two solar plants in Brazil – Sobral I and Sertao I – that will produce 154 GWh per year.
