TSK constructs geothermal station in Mexico

Spanish EPC company, TSK, will build the second phase of the Azufres III geothermal field for the Federal Electricity Commission (CFE). The plant, located in the province of Michoacan, 250 km from Mexico City, with a capacity of 25 MW, will have an average annual output reaching 200 Gigawatt hours per year. This project was awarded through an international competitive bidding process organized by the CFE in which the offer presented by TSK was the winner with a total score of 99.76 points out of possible 100.

Under the scope of this contract, TSK will perform the engineering, procurement of equipment, complete construction and commissioning of the geothermal plant, including the substation and connection thereof to the CFE 115 kV grid. The deadline for carrying out the project is 30 months. This project will extract steam from the Los Azufres Geothermal Field, the second geothermal reservoir of Mexico and one of the largest in the world. To capture the steam, extraction wells will be sunk to depths between 2 and 2.5 km. This project also consolidates TSK’s presence in Mexico, where it has been carrying out projects since 2012.
