Mitsubishi wins order for 2,600 MW in natural gas-fired systems

Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, jointly with CTCI Corp., a Taiwan-based engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) firm, has received a full-turnkey order from Taiwan Power Co. (Taipower) for a project to construct a natural gas-fired gas turbine combined cycle power generation plant with collective power generation capacity of 2,600 MW.

The gas power plant, to consist of three islands of combined cycle power generation systems, will feature MHI's M501J gas turbines. The three GTCC islands are slated to go on-stream sequentially between September 2016 and June 2017. Mitsubishi Corp. will handle the trade particulars.

Taipower is building the large-scale GTCC power plant at a site in Tunghsiao Township, Miaoli County, more than 90 miles southwest from central Taipei, in line with Taiwan's long-term power development plan. The new Tunghsiao GTCC power plant will be built by removing existing plant from the site.

The power produced by the plant will meet the country's increasing demand for electricity, which is expected to soar along with economic growth.

Each GTCC power generation island will consist mainly of two M501J gas turbines, one steam turbine, a heat recovery steam generator and three generators. MHI will be responsible for the manufacture and supply of the gas and steam turbines. CTCI will handle construction and installation at the plant site and also EPC work for balance of plant. The generators will be produced by Mitsubishi Electric Corp.
