Mexico, May 2 (Notimex) .- Mexican engineers developed in conjunction with the German company Siemens the first floating electric plant "SeaFloat", which can supply fluid to all types of facilities and homes.
"Mexico is the hub for all projects in Latin America. The participation of Mexican engineers was present from the identification of the project, the design, and development of the concept of a floating electric plant, "said José Miguel Aparicio, Executive Vice President of Siemens Power and Gas in Latin America.
He stressed that this technology and its eventual adoption in the country can represent savings of up to 20 percent in operating costs and avoiding the emission of one hundred thousand tons of CO2 per year into the atmosphere.
Another advantage is that savings are achieved in property payments, by operating at sea, and they are also resistant to any natural phenomenon with security measures that make them unique in their type, he said.
It can also be complemented with a desalination plant to provide clean drinking water and for its architecture, it can be moved to any place that can be accessed by sea or by rivers.
Aparicio stressed that the German Siemens is committed to Mexico and its authorities, so it offers the most advanced technology in terms of power generation such as these floating plants.
"Siemens is interested in continuing to work as a reliable technology provider for the development of combined cycle plants, industrial cogeneration, and thermoelectric plants," he said in a statement.
He said that this German company with 125 years of presence in Mexico, works as a co-developer of energy projects, where it provides engineering, procurement and construction services.
