KHI awarded turnkey contract by Shizuoka Gas & Power

Kawasaki Heavy Industries reported it has been awarded a full turnkey contract by Shizuoka Gas & Power, a power producer and supplier operated by Shizuoka Gas, to build a gas engine power plant in Fuji City, Shizuoka Prefecture.

This is the first order ever to be received from a PPS owned by a gas company.

The new 15 MW power plant will consist of two Kawasaki Green gas engines (KG-18-V), each boasting an electrical output of 7,800 kW and the world’s highest electrical efficiency of 49.5%.  Kawasaki will oversee the entire construction project, including power plant design, supply and installation of power equipment, and facility construction. The power plant is scheduled to be put into operation in January 2016.

Shizuoka Gas & Power will utilize the new power plant in combination with the surplus electricity from local captive power plants, renewable energy and other energy sources to meet varying demands for electricity. The Shizuoka Gas Group aims to launch the new integrated energy business by 2016 and help revitalize the region through the gas and electricity it will provide.

Needs for distributed power systems including small and medium scale utility are increasing to ensure a stable power supply and also in response to the full liberalization of electricity retailing.
