MHPS J-Series Gas Turbines Surpass ¼ Million Cumulative Operating Hours


Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems (MHPS) today announced that its installed base of J-Series gas turbines has accumulated more than a quarter million actual operating hours.

The worldwide fleet of J-Series turbines has a total capacity exceeding 10 GW and has produced over 109,000 GWh of electricity. A total of 45 J-Series gas turbines have been ordered globally.

MHPS teamed with the Japanese Ministry of Economy, Trade, and Industry to develop the turbine technology. After eight years in development, the first M501J provided 60 Hz electricity to Japanese utility Kansai Electric in 2011.

The current operating fleet of 20 J-Series turbines has met all contractual performance obligations and was commissioned on schedule or before.
