GE to Boost Power Services in Latin America

BADEN, Switzerland — GE’s Power Services business announced it has secured more than $310 million in services orders for three power plants in Latin America as utilities throughout the region look to boost the efficiency and reliability of their new and existing combined-cycle generating facilities to keep pace with local energy demands. The latest agreements cover a new power plant being built in Mexico and existing facilities in Chile and on the island nation of Trinidad and Tobago.

“We are very pleased to have been selected to provide long-term maintenance services for the new TECHGEN Power Plant in Mexico, which underscores the faith that utilities have in us to protect their significant investments in new power plants,” said Ramon Paramio, general manager of GE’s Power Services business in Latin America. “Meanwhile, our projects in Chile and Trinidad and Tobago illustrate the vital efficiency advantages that utilities can gain from modernizing their older power plants. There is a growing trend in the Latin American/Caribbean region to focus on modernizing these older power plants to make them more energy efficient and increase their fuel flexibility. These two projects will serve as models for other Latin American and Caribbean utilities that are operating more mature gas turbine fleets.”
