MHI Pulls In Four Power Orders
Japan’s Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Ltd. (MHI) has received orders for 10 of its M501J gas turbines for four Korean power plants. The plants are natural-gas-fired, gas turbine combined-cycle (GTCC) power generation facilities with generation capacities ranging from 950 to 1900 MW, MHI said.
Two turbines each will go to the Yulchon 2, 2nd-Pyeongtaek and Ulsan 4 power plants with four designated for the Dongducheon plant. Yulchon 2 is a near 950 MW plant being built in Jeollanam-do by MPC Yulchon Generation Co., Ltd., a group company of Meiya Power Co. Ltd. (MPC). MPC is an independent power producer based in Hong Kong. MHI received an order for two gas turbines, a steam turbine, two heat recovery steam generators and three generators.
The 2nd-Pyeongtaek, also a near 950 MW power plant, is being built in Gyeonggi-do by Korea Western Power Co., Ltd. MHI received an order, jointly with Marubeni Corp., for two gas turbines, a steam turbine and generators. For the 1900 MW Dongducheon plant, MHI received an order, also jointly with Marubeni, for four gas turbines, two steam turbines and generators. For the 950 MW Ulsan 4 plant operated by Korea East-West Power Co. in Ulsan Metropolitan City, MHI received an order jointly with Daelim Industrial Co. Ltd. for two gas turbines, a steam turbine and generators.
For each of the four orders, MHI will supply the gas and steam turbines and Mitsubishi Electric will provide the generators. The order from Korea is the first for the J-Series gas turbine from overseas. The turbines designated for Korea begin GTCC operation in 2014.
