GE Energy’s nuclear business has been awarded a contract at the Laguna Verde Nuclear Power Plant in Mexico.

Located in the state of Veracruz on the Gulf Coast, each of Laguna Verde's two boiling water reactors (BWRs) has an output of 695MWe.

Operator Comisión Federal de Electricidad (CFE) awarded GE the contract to provide the safety and licensing evaluations required to support plans to boost Laguna Verde's output by as much as 20%. GE originally designed the plant.

The Laguna Verde contract should see the plant upgrade implementation in 2009 and 2010.
