 MHPS rebrands its H-80 gas turbine

Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems (MHPS) today announced the renaming of its H-80 gas turbine. The 100-MW class, heavy-duty, high-efficiency turbine will now be called the H-100, a change made to more accu­rately reflect the rated capacity class of the model.
The turbine’s design is unchanged and will continue to utilize efficient, two-shaft operation, representing an optimum solution for simple-cycle, combined-cycle, cogeneration, or mechanical-drive applications. The H-100 also utilizes a packaged design, allowing for quick and simple site construction and a flexible layout within a small foot print.
The production line up for H-series turbines includes the H-25 (ranging from 28MW to 42MW), as well as the H-100 and the soon-to-be-released H-50. The H-50 turbine (50 MW) has been in operation at a pilot site since 2012 and is expected to be introduced in 2016 at a demonstration plant.
To date there are 199 MHPS H-series gas turbines in operation or under contract, with over 5 million hours of reliable operation. H-series turbines can serve as “drop in” replacements for older and less efficient heavy-frame gas turbines. Such a retrofit enables a step change in efficiency increase, lower life cycle cost, and reduced environmental footprint.
