Cogen Plant Order for MHI
Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Ltd. (MHI), together with Daewoo Engineering & Construction Co., Ltd. (Daewoo E&C) and POSCO Engineering & Construction Co., Ltd. (POSCO E&C), has received a turnkey order from Korea District Heating Corporation (KDHC), a state-owned corporation, for the construction of a 525 MW cogeneration plant in Hwaseong, South Korea. The plant, to supply power and district heating, is scheduled for completion in November 2007.
The combined-cycle (GTCC) power generation plant will be composed mainly of two M501F gas turbines, one steam turbine, a heat recovery steam generator (HRSG) and a generator. MHI will be responsible for the design and manufacture of the gas and steam turbines, the core equipment of the facility. Mitsubishi Electric Corporation will build the generator. Daewoo E&C and POSCO E&C will take charge of construction and installation, plus procurement of the HRSG.
The electricity produced at the plant will be sold to Korea Electric Power Corporation. The exhaust heat from the gas turbines will be used not only for power generation to drive the steam turbine, producing steam by the HRSG, but also for heating and hot water production to service approximately 51 000 households in Hwaseong and a new residential area nearby.
