KHI Wins Cogeneration Order in Iran
Kawasaki Heavy Industries Ltd. has landed a contract to construct a cogeneration system in Iran. In the deal, the Japanese firm will ship midsize gas turbines used in a fertilizer plant to a group firm of the state-run National Iranian Oil Co. Kawasaki Plant Systems, a Kawasaki Heavy subsidiary, had already won a contract to build the fertilizer plant.
It is the first time that Kawasaki Heavy, which has long specialized in small gas turbines, has received an overseas order for midsize turbines it developed in-house.
The plant is being built in Kermanshah, which lies 520 kilometers southwest of the capital city of Tehran. Three L204 gas turbines and three heat-collecting boilers will be installed there.
Construction of the fertilizer plant and the cogeneration system is expected to be completed by next spring, with total costs pegged at around 32 billion yen.
