GE Energy Services recently signed a service agreement with Mexico’s Comisión Federal de la Electricidad (Federal Electricity Commission). GE manages the supply of repairs, services, and parts for generators and gas turbines. This is the most distinct time in history that the Mexican government has signed a service agreement of this magnitude with a power plant service company. Under the terms of the agreement, GE will support the efficiency of gas turbines for the next 15 years. Additionally, six new gas turbines have already been installed at their sites and the full power plant should be ready for operation during the summer of 2012.
This project by GE Energy Services and the Mexican government  is anticipated to provide employment opportunities for more than 80 individuals.
Mexico’s Federal Electricity Commission chief executive officer Antonio Vivanco stated, “This repowering project will benefit more than 10 million Mexican households by delivering access to reliable electric power.” He went on to say, “Additionally, it will contribute significantly to a National Infrastructure Plan to promote the development of other industries and services in the region.” Ramón Barrientos V., account executive director for GE Energy Services , claimed, “For 115 years, GE has not only developed advanced technology to meet local power needs in Mexico, but also has offered innovative energy solutions […] This new agreement provides a platform for us to deliver long-term services and support our commitment to drive progress in the country.”
