Gas turbine developed for mechanical drive applications by a trio of Mitsubishi companies received full Shell qualification following detailed technical review.

Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems (MHPS) and Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Compressor Corporation (MCO) developed the 2-shaft 118MW H-100 gas turbine that started a testing regime to validate the mechanical drive performance in August 2017.

After completion of testing protocol and a detailed technical review by their qualification team, Shell unveiled their official qualification of the MHPS gas turbine on December 22, 2017, the statement reads.

Shell has already qualified Mitsubishi Compressors by Enterprise Frame Agreement effective in 2011, clearing the way for MHPS and MCO to supply all components for future Shell LNG compression systems.

MHI said the H-100 gas turbine offers efficiency and reliability with low-maintenance with benefits including a broad variable-speed operating window and train restarts under settle-out pressure as well as shortened start-up time and a reduced plot size.
