Mitsubishi Power to supply turbines to Uzbek gas power plant
Mitsubishi Power has received an order for two H-25 gas turbines for a natural gas-fired cogeneration plant being built in Tashkent, Uzbekistan, its parent company Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI) said on March 30.
The two units will be the core equipment for the facility, which will be operated by Tashkent HPP, a cogeneration business operator in the city. Turkish firm Calik Enerji has been appointed the project contractor for engineering, procurement, and construction, with the gas turbine supplied through that company. The plant is scheduled to start operations in 2024.
The National Gas Company of Trinidad and Tobago Limited (NGC) NGC’s HSSE strategy is reflective and supportive of the organisational vision to become a leader in the global energy business.
This is the second order for this plant, following an order for an H-25 gas turbine and heat recovery steam generator in the adjacent existing No. 1 facility, which has been in operation since 2013, MHI said.
This project is supported by Japan International Cooperation Agency. The H-25 gas turbine will be manufactured at MHI's Hitachi Works in Ibaraki Prefecture in Japan.
