MEXICO CITY May 11 General Electric has won a
contract to supply two new gigawatts of power in Mexico,
centering on the installation of four 7HA gas turbines, the
company said on Thursday.
The U.S. conglomerate said in a statement that GE Power also
had signed a separate multi-year agreement worth $120 million to
provide service to gas and steam turbines in power plants in the
Mexican states of Durango and Veracruz.
The firm said the new combined-cycle gas turbines would have
an "extended reach" but did not say what they were worth.
A spokeswoman for General Electric could not immediately
provide details on the value of the gas turbine order, nor on
where they would be installed, nor on whose behalf.
