    Laguna Verde power plant provides 18% of Mexico's clean energy: CFE

    August 8, 2022 - CE Noticias Financieras


      The Federal Electricity Commission (CFE) informed that the Laguna Verde Nuclear Power Plant (CNLV) produces between 4.5 and 4.8 percent of the electricity consumed in the country, represents 8.9 percent of the generation of the Federal Electricity Commission (CFE), and constitutes 18 percent of the clean energy generated in the country.

      The manager of Nuclear Power Plants and CFE's Nuclear Corporate Coordinator, Héctor López Villarreal, said that after 32 years of operation, the initial investment in the CNLV has been fully amortized and the electricity it generates is the cheapest in the CFE.

      Héctor López emphasized that nuclear energy is the cleanest, most reliable and safest source to generate the electricity needed by Mexico and the world, which is why, on a global scale, 450 reactors are currently operating and 50 more are under construction and he emphasized that, like all nuclear power plants, Laguna Verde complies with strict and specialized regulations that guarantee its safe operation.

      At Comisión Federal de Electricidad and at the Laguna Verde Nuclear Power Plant, the priority is always the safety of the personnel and of the population living in the surrounding area. It is very important that the personnel is safe and that the 1,400 nuclear professionals who work at the plant are protected?

      In a statement, the CFE assured that Laguna Verde strictly complies with national and international regulations, with the commitments of the Operating License, the Ministry of Energy and the National Nuclear Safety and Safeguards Commission; with the Environmental Monitoring Program and with the External Radiological Emergency Plan.

      "The plant has an Excellence Plan that promotes organizational effectiveness, equipment reliability and nuclear professionalism. CNLV personnel are ready to operate new units and to train new nuclear professionals in case the Mexican government decides to increase nuclear generation."
