GAS CHP SYSTEM FIRST TO MEET NEW REGULATIONS GENERATES COST SAVINGS AND LOWER EMISSIONS

Mexico’s first power cogeneration plant to operate under the new Abasto Aislado electrical regulations is up and running at the Diltex manufacturing plant near Mexico City. The facility’s natural gas-powered CHP system, powered by an MTU Series 4000 engine, has cut energy bills by 12% and generated $200,000 in savings in its first year of operation. The system also supports Diltex’s environmental initiatives, with a projected reduction of 3,570 equivalent tons of CO2 per year.
