Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems has won an order for a 26 MW gas turbine for a power project in Belarus.
The order has come from China Machinery Engineering Corporation, which is the EPC contractor for the cogeneration project.
The project is being financed by the World Bank and involves the refurbishment and modernization of the existing Gomel Combined Heat and Power Plant in the city of Gomel, some 300 kilometers southeast of Minsk.
The aim is to increase the plant's power generation and heat supply capabilities while simultaneously achieving energy savings.
The newly-ordered gas turbine is a H-25 model and will form the core of the upgraded cogeneration facility, which will also incorporate a steam turbine, waste heat recovery boiler, generator and auxiliary equipment.
MHPS will be in charge of manufacturing and supplying the gas turbine and also dispatching engineers to the site to provide direct guidance and instruction.
