Grupo Porcelanite Lamosa, via its subsidiary LEMSA (Lamosa Energía de Monterrey) has supported the investment required to construct a CHP plant installed in its ceramic tiling factory located in Benito Juárez (Monterrey – Nuevo León). This investment is a clear example of the commitment of Grupo Porcelanite Lamosa to the environment, improving energy efficiency through cogeneration systems. The project will be able to generate over 57.000 MWh of electricity per year, of which 46% are fuel free, making this one of the most efficient CHP projects in the whole of Mexico.

Entering into operation in late 2016, the plant is based on a single cycle with a gas-fired turbo genset offering an onsite output of 7.5 MW. It uses the heat from the turbine flue gas produced in the processes to dry ceramic dust by the factory’s two existing sprayers.


To build the plant, LEMSA has been supported from the outset by Asesoría Energética CHP México S.A. de C.V., a subsidiary of AESA (Barcelona) to undertake the design, project management and complete integration engineering, purchasing management for the gas turbogenerator, legal requirements and the turnkey supply of the Balance of Plant (BOP).
