Internal Combustion Plant Baja California Sur V (BCSV) – 46.8 MW
The internal combustion thermal power plant of Baja California V, owned by the Federal Electricity Commission (CFE) of Mexico, is located near La Paz, the capital of the state of Baja California Sur (Mexico).
The Plant has a net capacity of 46.8 MW and uses an internal combustion engine that takes advantage of residual petroleum fuels. In this way, it is possible to optimize the oil cycle and its reuse with minimal environmental impact. Additionally, diesel is used as the auxiliary fuel. The exhaust output of the combustion gases of the engine has SCR (Selective Catalytic Reducer) type equipment for the reduction of NOx emissions. In addition, the plant is equipped with a heat recovery steam boiler (HRSG) to meet the required steam consumption. To obtain greater efficiency and power at the plant, the steam discharge from the generator feeds a steam turbogenerator and its auxiliary equipment.
Acciona has contracted IDOM to provide the complete engineering services (basic and detailed) of the Central project.
