Mitsubishi construirá una central de energía geotérmica en Michoacán (México)
Mitsubishi Heavy Industies LDA - Press Information (Comunicado de Prensa)
Mexico ranks fifth in the world in terms of geothermal resources, and MHI has delivered five geothermal power plants to the Los Azufres power station and six units to the Cerro Prieto power station. Together with these existing plants, the new geothermal power plant will provide electricity to meet strong demand in Mexico, where steady economic growth is projected in the coming years.
Geothermal power generation utilizes geothermal fluid, a mixture of high-temperature water and steam extracted from deep underground reservoirs through production wells. The steam extracted from the fluid is used to rotate steam turbines. Geothermal power generation involves no fuel combustion, so it emits no CO2, and it is not affected by weather in generating power, unlike photovoltaic or wind power generation. Due to these advantages, geothermal power generation has been gathering significant attention as a clean energy that contributes to environmental preservation.
MHI is a leading company in geothermal power generation systems, having to date received orders for more than 100 units from 13 countries. The installed capacity of these units totals 3,010 MW, equal to approximately 30% of the world's geothermal power generation installed capacity. Leveraging this strong track record and its technological expertise, MHI will continue aggressive marketing activities for its geothermal power generation systems that contribute to efforts to prevent global warming.
