  • Hydro-generator ready for shipment to La Yesca project in Mexico

    Russian equipment supplier JSC Power Machines said it has manufactured the first of two hydro-generators for the 750-MW La Yesca project in Mexico.

    The company is preparing the equipment for shipment to the project site on the Santiago River.

    Under a US$200 million contract, Power Machines agreed to provide two 375-MW hydropower turbines and other equipment for the project. The first unit is expected to begin commercial production in January 2012, followed by the second unit in April of that year.

    The first shipment of turbine components and other hydro-mechanical equipment was dispatched to the site earlier this month. (HydroWorld 8/10/09)

    La Yesca’s US$767 million, 220-meter tall concrete-faced rockfill dam will be one of the tallest of its type and 34.5 meters taller than Mexico’s 750-MW El Cajon project, which began operation in 2007. Mexico’s Comision Federal de Electricidad awarded a contract to build La Yesca in 2007 to a consortium led by contractor Ingenieros Civiles Asociados.

    Mexico President Felipe Calderon Hinojosa gave the order in March to begin diversion of the Santiago River, starting dam construction in Jalisco State near the border of Nayarit State. (HydroWorld 3/16/09)
