Tendering rules for the construction of the natural gas-fueled power plants:
On late April 2021, Comisión Federal de Electricidad (“CFE”), Mexico’s Productive Company of the State in the electricity sector, published the tendering rules for the construction of the following natural gas-fueled power plants: CCC González Ortega (Baja California), CCC Mérida (Yucatán), CCC Tuxpan (Veracruz) and CCC San Luis Rio Colorado (Sonora). The tendering rules contemplate a lump sum turnkey contractual scheme to undertake these projects.
These public tenders are part of the six priority projects announced earlier this year by CFE, with the purpose of adding 4,322MW of generation installed capacity. According to CFE, the performance of the projects will result in an investment of approximately 3 billion dollars.
This document contains some general information of the four public tenders and a quick overview of the contractual scheme devised by CFE for their implementation.
