Five LTSAs For MHI In Four Countries
Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI) has recently concluded five new long term service agreements (LTSA) for gas turbine combined cycle (GTCC) plants in Egypt, Turkey, Australia and Argentina. In each instance, MHI has either been involved in the construction of the entire plant or supplied its major components. Under the agreements, MHI will provide supply, maintenance and repair services for components that are exposed to very high temperatures as well as expendable parts, and also dispatch engineers to the sites.
The five facilities covered under the new LTSAs are GTCC power plants at the Sidi Krir and El Atf Power Stations in Egypt, the Bandirma Power Station in Turkey, the Tamar Valley Power Station in Australia and the Constanera Power Station in Argentina. The plants are either new constructions going on stream in 2009 or 2010, or existing plants subject to LTSA renewal.
With GTCC type power generation, gas and steam turbines are used in combination to generate electricity in two stages, utilizing high-temperature exhaust gas from the gas turbine. This configuration enables efficient use of energy resources and reduction of CO2 emissions, which contributes to energy saving and environmental protection.
