Japanese gas turbine producer Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems (MHPS) has secured an order to supply two gas turbines for an LNG-fired power plant project developed by China’s Qingdao Energy Kaiyuan Thermoelectricity Co.
The 80 megawatt (MW) gas turbine combined cycle power plant will provide power and heat for industrial processes and companies in the Qingdao National High-Tech development Zone – Hongdao economic zone, according to a statement by Mitsubishi Hitachi.
The two 32 MW H-25 type gas turbines are expected to begin operations in December 2018.
Using an energy-step-utilization process, high-temperature waste heat from the gas turbines will be converted into steam by the exhaust heat recovery boilers and that steam will be sent to the steam turbine, according to MHPS.
Worth mentioning, MHPS was formed in 2014 by the integration of the power units of Japan’s Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Ltd and Hitachi Ltd.
