Mexico’s largest steel galvanizing plant, owned by POSCO-Mexico, will save $6 million per year in electrical power costs and achieve power independence by using GE’s Jenbacher technology. The new nine-megawatt power generation project will use natural gas to produce POSCO-Mexico’s onsite power instead of purchasing it from the grid.

The galvanized steel produced will be shipped to the automotive industry in North and South America, which depends heavily on this type of steel for the production of many components used in car manufacturing.

“This new plant provides power for POSCO-Mexico’s galvanized steel, allowing the company to better serve the needs of the automotive industry in North and South America,” said Gwandeung An, project manager, Daewoo Engineering, POSCO-Mexico’s partner in the project. “The savings POSCO-Mexico realizes from producing its own power, all day, every day, using GE’s proven Jenbacher technology will allow the company to be in a position to explore expansion of its current facilities.”

The power plant, located in Altamira, Mexico, features three of GE’s natural gas fueled JMS 620 Jenbacher gas engines, rated at three megawatts each. It was designed and built for POSCO-Mexico by its partner company, Daewoo Engineering Company of South Korea, and will enter commercial operation by the end of 2010. The gas engines were sold to Daewoo Engineering through GE’s Jenbacher authorized distributor, Smith Power Products of Salt Lake City, Utah.

“POSCO-Mexico benefits from the higher efficiency, reliability, durability, low fuel consumption and long life of our Jenbacher gas engines,” said Prady Iyyanki, CEO—gas engines for GE Power & Water. “This project strengthens our support of business growth in this developing industrial area of Mexico.”

Continuously refined based on GE’s extensive experience, the JMS 620 Jenbacher engines are reliable, advanced products serving the 1.8 to three-megawatt power range. Their 1,500 rpm engine speed results in a high power density and low installation costs. The pre-combustion chamber achieves maximum efficiency with low emissions. Proven design and optimized components enable a service life of 60,000 operating hours before the first major overhaul.
