Calgary-based ATCO won a $50 million contract from Mexico’s Federal Commission of Electricity (CFE) to build and operate a natural gas pipeline near the town of Tula in the state of Hidalgo.
ATCO will design, construct, operate and maintain the pipeline that will transport natural gas about 10 miles to fuel the Francisco Perez Rios power plant, near Tula.
The pipeline is expected to be online in 2015.
ATCO will hire a local engineering, procurement and construction firm to support the project.
The deal is ATCO’s first energy infrastructure project under the newly reformed energy sector in the country.
“We look forward to forming lasting partnerships and demonstrating that we are a trusted builder and operator of key infrastructure, just as we have done in Canada and Australia,” Chair, president and CEO Nancy Southern said.
