- For Hongqiao Industrial Zone; operation to begin in 2019
- Third order (total: 5 units) for China received through HGGT
YOKOHAMA, JAPAN (May 23, 2018) – Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems, Ltd. (MHPS) has received an order for two H-25 gas turbines for a thermal power station being built by China Resources Power Group, a leading power provider in China, in Taixing City, Jiangsu Province. The units on order will form the core equipment of a double-train 80 megawatt (MW) class gas turbine combined cycle (GTCC) power plant fired by natural gas. It is scheduled to go into operation in 2019. Serving as a standalone power source in a local industrial zone, the new plant will supply power, steam for manufacturing processes, and cooled air for air-conditioning.
The power plant project is being developed by China Resources Power Taizhou Co., Ltd., a wholly owned member of China Resources Power Group. The plant is under construction in the Hongqiao Industrial Zone located around 100 kilometers (km) from Nanjing, Jiangsu’s provincial capital. MHPS received the order through Harbin Guanghan Gas Turbine Co., Ltd. (HGGT), a member of China Shipbuilding Industry Group that produces ships and marine machinery.
The GTCC facility uses components such as two H-25 gas turbines, steam turbines, generators and waste heat recovery boilers. MHPS will deliver the gas turbines’ main and auxiliary machinery and also dispatch engineers to the site to perform installation and provide guidance in trial operations.
The H-25 is a heavy-duty gas turbine(Note1) with outstanding reliability, a strong track record, and a high level of operating hours. Since 1987, a total of 206 units of H-series gas turbines have been ordered by domestic and overseas(Note2) customers. In recent years the H-25 has seen strong demand especially for use as a standalone power source in industrial areas. The latest order is the third received from China through HGGT (a total of five units).
GTCC is the cleanest and most efficient method of fossil fuel power generation. Power is produced by a gas turbine, and also by a steam turbine utilizing the high-temperature waste heat from the gas turbine. Compared to conventional coal-fired plants, GTCC can reduce carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions by roughly 70%. MHPS’ gas turbines offer the industry’s highest level of efficiency.
MHPS provides total solutions in thermal power generation backed by a full range of products: from high-efficiency, large-capacity power generation systems to energy-saving systems for industrial applications employing small to medium-scale gas turbines. Going forward, the company will continue to proactively market not only solutions for large-scale power generation needs but also energy-saving systems for industrial and standalone power generation, especially the H-25 gas turbine. By responding to user needs of every description, MHPS will contribute to economic development and easing of environmental burdens in countries and regions worldwide.
