Under the contract, MHPS has agreed to supply M701S(DA)X gas turbine, steam turbine, and power generator to the Chinese firm.

MHPS equipment will serve as the key components of a blast furnace gas (BFG) fired gas turbine combined cycle (GTCC) power plant, which has the capacity to generate 180MW of power.

The new power plant is expected to begin operations by the end of 2020.

Once operational, Maanshan intends to use a portion of the electric power generated within the plant itself.

“The new power plant is expected to begin operations by the end of 2020.”

The BFG-fired GTCC facility will be equipped with an M701S (DA) X gas turbine, heat recovery boiler, steam turbine, generator, gas compressor, and auxiliary equipment.

In addition to the gas and steam turbines, and generator, MHPS will supply gas compressor, auxiliary equipment including electrostatic precipitators and speed reduction units.

The company noted that the generator will be manufactured by Mitsubishi Electric Corporation.

Using the by-product gases emitted by the blast, coke, and converter furnaces, the power generating equipment will be used at the GTCC facilities already in operation.

Located in Anhui Province, Maanshan Iron & Steel is a Chinese steelmaker. In 2007, MHPS supplied an M701S(DA) GTCC power plant 1 series for the factory, the first M701S(DA) system in China.
