MHI Group said it has completed successive technical qualification, conducted by oil majors and engineering companies on Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems’ 120MW H-100 Gas Turbine.
To date, major LNG players, including ExxonMobil, Shell, Total, along with key engineering contractors such as Bechtel, have all completed extensive qualification studies on the gas turbine for use as the mechanical driver in conjunction with compressors of Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Compressor Corporation, the company said in a statement.
“Acceptance of our LNG Solution by customers around the globe is a real boost for the MHI team,” according to Hiroaki Osaki, president of MHI America Oil & Gas Division.
MHI Group said the H-100 driver combines the efficiency and variable speed operation of an aero-derivative, with the durability, reliability and lower emissions and maintenance cost of a heavy-duty industrial gas turbine.
The ability to re-start under full settle-out pressure without requiring a large external starter/helper motor, makes the H-100 the most compact, trip-tolerant driver in its class.
MHI group is now marketing their H-100-driven main liquefaction solution in single, stand-alone 1×100 percent strings or multi-unit large scale trains.
