MHPS Receives Order for Two GTCC Power Generation System Trains in Uzbekistan -- For 900 Megawatt Class Turakurgan Thermal Power Plant Construction Project --
Yokohama, November 21, 2016 -- Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems, Ltd. (MHPS) together with Mitsubishi Corporation, has received a full turnkey contract order for two main equipment trains of high-efficiency power generation equipment, including M701F gas turbines and steam turbines. The equipment will be used at the Turakurgan thermal power plant in eastern Uzbekistan. The plant is to be built by the Republic of Uzbekistan's national utility, Uzbekenergo (a Joint Stock Company), with a Japanese Official Development Assistance (ODA) Loan, provided by the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) and Uzbekistan governmental fund. The 900 megawatt class GTCC is scheduled to commence operations in 2020. This order follows a previous contract for one GTCC train for the Navoi 2 Power Plant in Uzbekistan, received in October this year.
The Turakurgan Power Plant is located in the northern region of Fergana Valley, home to around 30 percent of the Uzbek population, around 190 kilometer east of the capital Tashkent. The region currently faces shortages of power, and imports electricity from neighboring countries. Upon completion, the new power plant will help to alleviate this.
For this project MHPS will design, procure and manufacture the main equipment including the gas turbines and steam turbines, as well as major auxiliaries such as the air-cooled condenser and gas compressor. It will also be responsible for marine transportation and commissioning. A generator manufactured by Mitsubishi Electric Corporation and MHPS will be utilized. Additionally, Mitsubishi Corporation will handle procurement for the remaining electrical components, and will be responsible for the project's inland transportation, civil works, and installation works at the site.
Uzbekenergo manages natural gas, coal and oil thermal power plants and hydroelectric plants. With annual electricity production of approximately 50,000 gigawatt hours, it provides almost all electric power for the country. MHPS has built a strong relationship with Uzbekenergo. In addition to supplying power generation equipment that produces 1,100 megawatts for the company, MHPS signed an MOU for operation and maintenance (O&M) in their power plants in 2015 and has provided technical training for Uzbek engineers.
MHPS will continue to contribute to stable and efficient electricity power supply operations in Uzbekistan, while further enhancing its good relationship with Uzbekenergo.
