Mitsubishi to supply steam turbines for Morocco coal plants

Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI) has received an order for two steam-turbines, 350 MW each, to be installed at two large-scale coal fired thermal power plants in Morocco, which Jorf Lasfar Energy Company 5&6 (JLEC 5&6), a power plant company owned by Abu Dhabi National Energy Company (TAQA), is to build.
The turbines are slated to be delivered to a consortium formed by Daewoo Engineering & Construction Co., Ltd. (Daewoo E&C) and Mitsui & Co., Ltd. for the construction project.
The large-scale coal fired power plants, in which the steam turbines are to be installed, will be built in the existing power station in the Jorf Lasfar district, near El Jadida, in the southwest of Casablanca. The two new power plants will be built as the No.5 and No.6 units to expand the station and adjoin existing power plants operated by Jorf Lasfar Energy Company (JLEC), also a subsidiary of TAQA. In addition to supplying the turbines, MHI will also be sending technical advisors.
