 MHPS, KEPCO Partner on New Gas Turbine Combustion, Measurement Technology

Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems (MHPS) has partnered with Korea Electric Power Corporation (KEPCO) to research a new combustion/measurement technology for gas turbines.

Akimasa Muyama, MHPS senior executive officer, and Kim Doo-Young, head of KEPCO’s research center, signed a joint research agreement.  The companies are looking to develop new combustion technology that can efficiently use low calorific value fuel.

MHPS and KEPCO previously signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) on initiatives including annual technical exchange meetings and future joint research.

The new joint research agreement will span three years and include field testing with MHPS’ combustion chamber using the gas turbine combustion test facility at KERRI, KEPCO’s electrical power research institute.

There are presently more than 130 gas turbines in commercial operation in Korea, 55 of them supplied by MHPS.
