We Signed an Agreement to Sell More Than 8,400 Mw of Combined Cycle Gas in Mexico for $6 Billion

The group maintains its commitment to Mexico with the aim of leading the energy transition in the country

Iberdrola Mexico and Mexico Infrastructure Partners (MIP) have today signed a memorandum of understanding, whereby the trust led and managed by MIP will acquire 8,539 MW of installed capacity. Of the total, 8,436 MW corresponds to combined cycle gas and 103 MW to wind.

Of the plants included in the agreement, 87% of the total installed capacity to be divested currently operate under the regime of Independent Energy Producers, contracted with the Federal Electricity Commission (CFE). These plants include the combined cycles of Monterrey I and II, Altamira III and IV, Altamira V, Escobedo, La Laguna, Tamazunchale I, Baja California, Topolobampo II and Topolobampo III, as well as the wind asset La Venta III. The privately operated combined cycle gas plants of Monterrey III and IV, Tamazunchale II and Enertek are also included in the agreement.

The agreed value for the sale amounts to approximately $6 billion, which may be modified based on the closing date of the transaction and other adjustments.
