Iberdrola S.A. Awarded 300 MW Combined-Cycle Power Plant Project in Baja California, Mexico



January 24, 2014

Iberdrola USA parent company, Iberdrola S.A. has been awarded a contract for the construction and operation of the 300 megawatt (MW) Baja California III combined-cycle power plant in Mexico. Work on the $270 million plant and associated facilities will begin in April 2014 with commercial operation planned for August 2016.

Iberdrola won the bid through an international tender process which also included a 25-year power purchase agreement with the Mexican Federal Electricity Commission (CFE). CFE also will supply the natural gas to fuel the new plant's two GE turbines.

With this contract, Iberdrola, which already has an operating capacity of more than 5,200 MW in Mexico, consolidates its position as the country's largest private electricity producer and the second largest producer in Mexico, after the state-owned CFE.

Iberdrola has been a leading energy producer in Mexico since 1998, and considers it, along with Brazil, as strategic locations for Latin American business growth. Between 2012-2014 Iberdrola plans to invest approximately '2.4 billion in the region - about ¼ of Iberdrola's worldwide investments of '10.5 billion.
