PMFG has received a contract for the supply of multiple Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) systems in support of gas fired combined cycle (GTCC) power plant in Taiwan.

PMFG has received a contract for the supply of multiple Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) systems in support of a gas-fired combined cycle (GTCC) power plant in Taiwan.

Under the $10m contract, Peerless' Environmental Systems unit will provide multiple SCR systems to be installed as part of a new 2,600MW natural gas fired combined cycle power plant in the country.

Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI), along with Taiwan EPC firm CTCI, won a full-turnkey contract, in 2013, from Taiwan Power (Taipower) to construct a 2,600MW natural GTCC power generation plant in Miaoli County, Taiwan.

"We also believe it to be the first installations of an SCR system on the new, large-scale 501J gas turbines."

The proposed plant, which is being built at a site in Tunghsiao Township, will include three GTCC power generation islands, each featuring two M501J gas turbines, one steam turbine, a heat recovery steam generator and three generators.

PMFG chief executive officer Peter Burlage said, "This new order is a great win for PMFG and we are proud to be part of a high efficiency, low emission power plant in the Asia Pacific region. We also believe it to be the first installations of an SCR system on the new, large-scale 501J gas turbines.

"Including this contract, we expect the net bookings for the fiscal year ending June 28, 2014 to increase over 50% over the prior year."

The project, which will replace the existing plant at the site, will bring its three islands into operations consecutively between September 2016 and June 2017.
