Mitsubishi Power Aero installs five 30 MW FT8 MobilePac aeroderivatives in Mexico


Mitsubishi Power Aero and Mitsubishi Power de Mexico, both subsidiaries of Mitsubishi Power Americas, executed a fast-track, turnkey contract to install and commission five 30 MW FT8 MobilePac aeroderivative, dual-fuel gas turbines for CFEN, a subsidiary of Mexico’s Federal Electricity Commission (CFE). The project, located in Mexicali, Baja California, delivers power in time for peak season. A sixth gas turbine will be added later to expand capacity and support next summer’s requirements.

The FT8 MobilePac gas turbine package is suited for rapid deployment to meet emergency power requirements. With the addition of these new units, CFE operates one of the largest FT8 fleets in the world.
