Mexico at high temperature: Magaldi Power wins an order for two production units for the “Carbon Dos” thermoelectric plant

UniCredit and SACE SIMEST, the export and internationalization hub of the CDP Group, are supporting the international growth of Magaldi Power, a company specialized in the production of industrial plant and equipment for transporting materials at high temperatures.


Magaldi-StemAs part of the initiative, UniCredit issued two bonds, guaranteed by SACE, for the proper execution of the contract and repayment of advances received, that enabled Magaldi Power to receive an order worth €19 million covering two units for the extraction and transport of ash on two production units of the “Carbon Dos” thermoelectric power plant in Cohauila State (Mexico).


The transaction was coordinated by the Corporate Campania Sud Area of UniCredit in Salerno and the SACE offices in Naples. This longstanding collaboration between SACE and the Salerno-based group has enabled the company, active in Italy with cutting-edge projects, to expand its export markets. Magaldi also received support recently from SIMEST in the form of a loan to bolster its presence in the U.S. market, a hub for trade with Canada and Mexico.


Through this initiative, SACE SIMEST confirms its support to companies in the Campania region, engine for exports to southern Italy. Through its Naples office, the Hub has served more than 1,000 companies in the past year alone, mobilizing €180 million in resources.


Since the 90s, Mexico has been a land of great opportunities for the Magaldi Group, and the Carbon II project is an excellent example as the largest single contract ever signed by a group company," Sales Manager, STEM Division and Mexico, of Magaldi Power. “Besides the obvious economic value, the awarding of the contract to our company confirms the absolute quality of our technological solutions, patented and produced in-house by Magaldi”.

Mexico: a land of opportunity

Mexico is experiencing a phase of strong economic development: already the no. 1 market in Latin America for Italian exports, it also offers good opportunities in the medium and long term. In 2017, goods exported to the country totaled €4,3 billion, and Italian exports registered health growth rates (+15.1%). Positive performance is also projected for the next four years (annual average of + 7.1%), and this will offer ample room for foreign companies interested in investing in the country, with the best opportunities both in traditional sectors (oil & gas and manufacturing) and in other segments of the economy (apparel, telecommunications, and tourism).
