Components For GTCC Plant Coming From MHI
Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Ltd. (MHI), in collaboration with Korea's Doosan Heavy Industries & Construction Co. Ltd., has received an order for major components for two trains of a natural gas-fired gas turbine combined cycle (GTCC) power generation system being built by Pocheon Power Co. Ltd., a Korean independent power producer.
MHI also signed a long-term maintenance service contract for the power plant, as well as an agreement to invest in Pocheon Power. MHI received the order, which calls for the provision of four M501GAC gas turbines and four generators, from Daelim Industrial Co. Ltd., which is responsible for the power plant construction project.
Of the major power plant components on order, MHI will manufacture and supply three of the gas turbines, and dispatch technical advisers. Doosan will manufacture the other gas turbine under license from MHI, and other auxiliary equipment. Mitsubishi Electric Corp. will be responsible for the four generators. All components are slated for delivery between July and November 2012.
Pocheon Power's GTCC plant, located in Pocheon, South Korea, will have the capacity to generate 1600 MW. The first and second trains of the power plant are scheduled for completion by the end of May and November 2014, respectively.
