Four More For Repeat Customer
Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI) has received an order from SNC-Lavalin International Inc., a Canadian engineering firm, for four sets of its natural gas-fired 150 MW M501F gas turbines and generators.
The equipment will be used for the Wasit Gas Plant, a gas processing project by Saudi Aramco, a government-owned company in Saudi Arabia. Altogether, Saudi Aramco has ordered 11 M501F units.
The gas turbines and generators, slated for delivery in 2012, will serve as the core equipment for the cogeneration facility at the Wasit Gas Plant located in the eastern province of Saudi Arabia. MHI will supply the four M501F gas turbines and Mitsubishi Electric Corp. will provide the four generators.
Previously, MHI received orders for seven M501F gas turbines by Saudi Aramco: two units for the Berri Gas Plant, delivered in May 2005; two for the Khursaniyah Oil and Gas Facilities, delivered in August 2007; one for the Karan Gas Facilities, an order placed in June 2008; and two for the Manifa Gas Facilities, an order placed in November 2008.
