GE to provide HA gas turbine technology for Tierra Mojada project


GE Power has secured a deal to provide power generation services, digital solutions, and its HA gas turbine technology to the Tierra Mojada combined-cycle gas-fired power plant in Guadalajara, Mexico.

As part of the deal, GE Power will provide its extended scope portfolio and Predix-based digital solutions. The Tierra Mojada plant will be equipped with two GE 7HA.02 gas turbines, one steam turbine, three generators, two heat recovery steam generators (HRSG), and new plant control systems.

Under a multi-year service agreement, GE will also help to maintain gas and steam turbines, as well as generators of the plant.

GE’s Predix-based asset performance management (APM) software can predict and accurately diagnose issues. It is also capable of optimising the units’ operation and resources.

Set to be completed by December 2019, the Tierra Mojada plant will generate 875MW of electricity and will supply electricity for up to 2.8 million average Mexican households. Once operational, the plant will be able to improve the stability of the Jalisco state grid.

Fisterra Energy, Blackstone Energy Partners, and Blackstone Capital Partners, will be responsible for bringing power from theTierra Mojada facility to the grid and selling it exclusively into the new open market in Mexico.
