Mexico is quickly amending its energy laws, creating a new electricity market and allowing the private sector to participate freely in the generation and sale of electricity. The new strategy targets private and international investors, thus changing the market situation. The new regulations pave way for independent power producer (IPP) projects that will help the Mexican energy sector to not only cover the national demand, but also export electricity to its neighboring countries. This is exactly what Energía del Caribe, S.A. plans to do with a 139 MW Wärtsilä Flexicycle power plant in Northern Mexico. In the unique tri-national project, natural gas from the United States will be imported to the power plant near the city of Monterrey, and the electricity will be transmitted through Mexico to Guatemala.
