PW Power Systems, Inc. (PWPS), a group company of Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, announced the sale of its latest aero-derivative power solution, the FT4000™ gas turbine, to a unit of Exelon Generation. Exelon purchased a 120 MW simple-cycle FT4000™ SWIFTPAC® power generation unit.

Exelon Corporation (NYSE: EXC) is one of the nation's leading energy providers with approximately 35,000 MW of owned capacity comprising one of the cleanest and lowest-cost power generation fleets in the United States.

PWPS has a long legacy of delivering extremely reliable and efficient gas turbine engines. With a modular design that includes proven features of the successful FT8® SWIFTPAC® power plants, the FT4000™ engine powered by a Pratt & Whitney® PW4000™ derivative gas generator offers a nominal 60 to 120 MW package of reliable peaking and base-load power in a compact footprint. The FT4000™ engine is designed for simple cycle, combined cycle or cogeneration applications. The FT4000™ SWIFTPAC® unit provides the highest power output of any aero-derivative gas turbine generator package available in the market.

As a next generation product, the FT4000™ SWIFTPAC® unit builds on over 50 years of aero-derivative packaging experience and more than 2000 industrial gas turbines installed worldwide. "Exelon is an existing customer of PWPS with extensive industry experience and we look forward to a successful introduction of the FT4000™ product to the Exelon generation portfolio," said Peter Christman, president of PWPS.

The scope of the contract consists of the turnkey supply of the FT4000™ SWIFTPAC® unit for a power plant in Harford County, Md. , including balance of plant equipment, installation and commissioning services.
