Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems (MHPS) has secured an order to supply H-25 gas turbines to Qingdao Energy Kaiyuan Thermoelectricity’s 80MW combined cycle (GTCC) power plant in China.
Powered by liquefied natural gas (LNG), the plant is being developed to serve companies based in the Qingdao National High-Tech and Hongdao economic development zones in China.
As part of the order, MHPS will manufacture two 32MW H-25 type gas turbines and supply them through the project’s local main contractor Harbin Guanghan Power Technology Development.
The MHPS turbines are expected to be commissioned by December next year and will form core components of the GTCC cogeneration plant.
Upon completion, the plant will be equipped with a number of components including gas turbines, steam turbines, generators, and exhaust heat recovery boilers.
The facility’s exhaust heat recovery boilers will employ an energy-step-utilisation process to convert high-temperature waste heat from the gas turbines into steam, which will then be sent to the steam turbine.
