WEG Promotes the Generation of Clean Energy

Mexico’s President, Felipe Calderón inaugurated the Cogeneration Plant of Tres Valles. It is worth of mentioning that this plant, located in the community of Tres Valles, will reduce over 3.6 million tons of carbon dioxide that are annually emitted into the atmosphere. “If the refineries of the country use this technology, we can reduce the emission to a quantity equivalent to removing 70 thousand cars from the streets a year” explained President Calderón.

The state-of-the-art technology of this plant, which uses WEG electric equipment in its generation system, has been awarded the Innovation Prize by Mexico’s National Science and Technology Council.

WEG supplied all the equipment for the electric system: a generator of 40MW, the panels and control centers for medium and low-voltage motors, the automation and supervisory control, including the substation turnkey project.

The objective of this project is to obtain a more efficient use of resources, maximizing the employment of sugarcane bagasse in order to reduce operational costs and promote the generation of clean energy upon the replacement of conventional hydrocarbon-based fuels.
