Mexico's transmission network is under pressure due to the rapid expansion of the country's generation fleet. Since 2000, the country's generation capacity has doubled to over 73,000 MW, according to SENER.
Even more, Mexico is expected to add 7 GW of new generation worth $8.6 billion as a result of its first three long-term electricity auctions, and install an additional 55.8 GW of generation capacity worth $97 billion by 2031. Of this, 63% of the new capacity will be renewable generation.
The increase in the number of clean energy plants - such as gas, combined cycle, wind, and solar - added to the growing current electricity demand requires a transmission extension of the electric grid, with the northeastern, northern, northwestern and southeastern transmission systems most vulnerable to becoming saturated.
But these are long distances. For cable connections beyond 40 km, HVDC is likely to be the only technical solution because of the high charging current of an AC cable, and proven solutions are needed.
Solving these bottlenecks will decrease long-term uncertainties for the development of new generation projects in these regions, strengthen the national grid, and reduce the cost of electricity to improve the competitiveness of local industry.
It is time for Mexico to transition to a 21st-century electric power system. HVDC technology will be at the forefront of solutions for this.
Join the 2nd annual HVDC Energy Highways 2018 Mexico conference this October 24, 2018 in Mexico City, Mexico and reveal the best practices that specifically fit Mexico’s context to design, finance, build, and operate HVDC transmission systems!

“The world that operates before us today is unrelenting in its demands. There has to be a sense of urgency in us, and the humility to acknowledge that we do not know all, and that we cannot undertake everything on our own. Hence the need for us to collaborate, internally within PETRONAS, as well as externally. We need to continuously be ahead of the curve. We must bring the 27th century mindset forward to today. Our long-term sustainability is underpinned by our collective ability to think and act for tomorrow, TODAY.”
- Tan Sri Mohd Sidek Hassan, Chairman, Petronas
Many FORTUNE Global 500® companies have seen their rankings fall in the face of the most tumultuous times in recent history, prompting people leaders to take a step back to reflect on the valuable lessons and insights that only these rare, defining moments have to offer.
In the face of the Fourth Industrial Revolution where a set of highly disruptive technologies, such as artificial intelligence (AI), robotics, blockchain and 3D printing, is transforming social, economic and political systems and putting huge pressure on companies to respond plus external factors that are beyond anyone’s control—only through the lens of your purpose—a higher level of consciousness—can you gain a clear line of sight of both the risks as well as opportunities that this new reality beholds.
Your behavior and mindset, fueled by your organizational purpose, are far more important than the ranking itself.
Your agility in the areas of technology, collaboration, business models and crucially, our collective behavior that shapes our organizational culture would stand you in good stead. After all, your brand reputation is underpinned by the cohesiveness of your people, our deep and long established client relationships, your robust processes and systems, and your vision.
Hear how leaders of living organizations have, in the words of Winston Churchill, “Never let a good crisis go to waste” and embarked on a transformation journey to ensure resilience and long-term sustainability at the HR Talk Show 2018, held on September 5, 2018 in Kuala Lumpur.
As you know, making subsea systems work in deepwater developments is not easy — such as at BP’s Atlantis, Na Kika, Thunder Horse and Mad Dog platforms in the Gulf of Mexico.
Any subsequent requirements to repair or intervene with installed subsea equipment can be expensive to the tune of $50 million or more, and unscheduled expenses of this magnitude can result in the economic failure of subsea projects.
Any subsea engineer can avoid expensive guesswork from extending asset life and developing stranded fields cost-effectively by attending Subsea Multiphase Boosting 2018 Brazil Conference because you will gain insights tried-and-tested solutions globally.
This year, Subsea Multiphase Boosting 2018 Brazil Conference highlights best practices and solutions in end-to-end subsea processing that are now being considered standard, tested and tried to save you millions of dollars from costly mistakes, that all of us cannot afford!
Conference Details: Subsea Multiphase Boosting 2018 Brazil Conference
Theme: Standards for high reliability and short turnaround intervention
Date: April 12-13, 2018 | Venue: Windsor Barra Hotel Rio de Janeiro
