Mitsubishi Power upgrades turbines at Singapore CCGT

Mitsubishi Power, a unit of Japan’s Mitsubishi Corp, on December 2 said it has completed upgrade works for two combined cycle gas turbine (CCGT) power plants with M701F gas turbines at Senoko power station in Singapore.

This has helped to improve energy efficiency and reduce approximately 15,000 metric tons of carbon emissions annually, it said. The upgrade is part of a long-term service agreement (LTSA) concluded under a consortium with Mitsubishi Corp.

Work on the upgrade and LTSA began in June 2019, as part of Senoko's efforts to improve energy efficiency and decarbonise in line with Singapore's Carbon Pricing Act, which saw subsidies for company efforts that led to reductions in carbon emissions. 

The Senoko power plant is the largest power station in Singapore. It is located in Senoko, Sembawang and was commissioned in 1976.
