June 12, 2017 – Abengoa (MCE: ABG/P:SM), the international company that develops innovative technology solutions for sustainable development in the energy and environment sectors, has received the final reception certificate by the Federal Electricity Commission in Mexico, for the Baja California Sur IV electricity generation plant, located 14 kilometers from the city of La Paz.

The plant consists of a two-stroke internal combustion engine that is designed to use fuel with no load or time limitations, as well as being able to operate with diesel in case of emergency.

Furthermore, the company has developed the Nuevo Pemex cogeneration plant (277 MW) in Tabasco.  Abengoa is also undertaking the Tercer Tren expansion project, and is constructing the Agua Prieta II solar thermal plant (14 MW) in Sonora State.
