Mexico will put out to tender the construction of 4 hydroelectric plants and 3 dam equipment in Sinaloa

Mexico’s Federal Electricity Commission (CFE) has announced a series of construction and modernization projects for hydroelectric plants aimed at increasing clean energy generation capacity.

According to Forbes México, the CFE, a productive company of the Mexican State, announced that during this year it will put out to tender four “mini hydroelectric” plants to increase its green energy generation capacity. Likewise, CFE will also put out to tender the equipment for three dams located in Sinaloa for the same period.

The construction projects will be added to another 16 plant modernization projects and all of them will be distributed among the entities of Sinaloa, Michoacán, Jalisco, Chiapas and Nayarit. With this, the generation capacity will be increased by 17 megawatts and the investment involved would be approximately 25.5 million dollars (about 23.1 million euros).

The Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources (Semarnat) has already authorized the construction of one of the projects: the Amata dam, located in Sinaloa. This same construction, Forbes Mexico reports, was previously put out to tender, but after being deserted in November, it was put out again in the second call on January 31.

According to the CFE, its park of hydroelectric plants consists of 166 generation units and its total effective capacity is 12,125,363 MW (around 12% of Mexico’s total generation). With these modernization actions, 12,428,963 MW would be reached and the generation equipment would see its reliability increased in 50 years.
