Mitsubishi Power to supply two gas turbines to Uzbek CCGT
Japan's Mitsubishi Power has received an order for two M701F gas turbines, two steam turbines, and auxiliary equipment for the expansion of Talimarjan combined cycle gas turbine (CCGT) power plant in Uzbekistan, it said on February 9.
The order has been placed by Spanish engineers Intecsa Ingenieria Industrial. The operation of this plant is scheduled for 2025. The event marks Mitsubishi Power’s second order for core components at the Talimarjan plant, following the receipt of an order for two sets of M701F gas turbines and generators for the TPP’s Unit 1 in 2013.
The new power generation facilities are aimed to provide power supply to consumers in Samarkand and Bukhara regions, seven pumping stations on the Karshi main canal and many other settlements. The operation of this plant will additionally produce 7.2 million MWh/year of power, the Japanese company said.
Mitsubishi Power said its gas turbines will enable a savings of 520mn m3 of natural gas, resulting in a reduction in carbon emissions by 1,500 metric tons/year.
Mitsubishi Power will supply the core components of the CCGT plant from Japan, including the M701F gas turbines, steam turbines, generators and auxiliary equipment. The gas turbines will be manufactured at the Takasago Machinery Works, and the steam turbines at the Hitachi Works. The generators will be manufactured by Mitsubishi Electric Corporation.
