Chilean Power Plant Order for MHI
Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Ltd. (MHI) has received a full-turnkey order for construction of a natural gas/oil-fired gas turbine combined-cycle (GTCC) power plant for ENDESA Chile (Empresa Nacional De Electricidad S.A. Chile), a Chilean electric generating company. The plant on order will form the core of the San Isidro II facility now under development.
The new 400 MW GTCC plant will be constructed near Quillota, approximately 130 km northwest of Santiago, the capital. The main plant components will include an M701F gas turbine, a steam turbine, a heat recovery steam generator (HRSG) and two generators. MHI will be responsible for the design and manufacture of the gas and steam turbines and HRSG, the core equipment of the facility. Mitsubishi Electric Corporation will build the generators. Mitsubishi Corporation handles the trade particulars.
In the initial stage, the San Isidro II power plant will generate electricity by gas turbine only beginning in March 2007. In February 2008, the steam turbine and HRSG is scheduled to go on-stream. In 1996 MHI filled the order for the GTCC plant at San Isidro I; operation at that facility commenced in October 1998.
