Mitsubishi Power to upgrade gas turbines at Singapore CCGT
Mitsubishi Power, a unit of Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI), has received a contract from Singapore’s Tuas Power Generation for upgrades to two of the four M701F gas turbines (CCP3 and CCP4) in its combined cycle gas turbine (CCGT) power generation facility, MHI said on November 30.
This upgrade is part of Tuas Power’s efforts to achieve energy efficiency improvements and fulfill decarbonisation measures in accordance with the Singapore government’s energy policies, MHI added. The project is scheduled for completion in 2023.
The Tuas Power facility is located in the southwest region of Singapore. Since 2001, Mitsubishi Power had supplied four gas turbines to Tuas Power, each with a rated output of 360 MW.
The upgrade will introduce the latest gas turbine technologies, achieving a heat rate improvement by reducing the volume of cooling air, which allows for reduced carbon emissions of approximately 16.9 kilo-tons/year combined for the two CCPs.
