MHPS SHIPS CUTTING-EDGE JAC GAS TURBINE FOR POWER PLANT PROJECT IN THAILAND
Friday, December 6, 2019
YOKOHAMA, Japan -- Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems, Ltd. (MHPS) completed a shipment of JAC (J-Series Air Cooled) gas turbines, the latest model in its mainstay J-Series of gas turbines on December 5. The shipment was made from MHPS' Takasago Works in Hyogo Prefecture, Japan, for a construction project to build two natural gas-fired power stations on the outskirts of Bangkok, Thailand, by a joint venture between Gulf Energy Development Public Company Limited, one of Thailand's largest independent power producers (IPP), and Mitsui & Co., Ltd. This is the first shipment of eight units ordered in February 2018 that will comprise the gas turbine combined cycle (GTCC) power plants with a combined total output of 5,300 megawatts (MW).(note1)

The JAC gas turbine shipped for this project is for a power plant in Chonburi Province, one of two 2,650MW power plants being built in Chonburi and Rayong provinces, approximately 130 kilometers southeast of Bangkok. Commercial operation is scheduled to start in 2021. After startup, the plants will use natural gas as their main fuel source, with the electric power generated to be sold to the Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand (EGAT). The project will support the steady economic development in Thailand with a highly efficient source of clean energy.

FRENCH ARMED FORCES SELECT SAFRAN PARACHUTES FOR HEAVY EQUIPMENT DROPS
Wednesday, December 4, 2019
PARIS -- Following a Europe-wide competition that lasted three years, the French defense procurement agency DGA has chosen Safran to supply an air delivery system capable of releasing heavy loads from the A400M military transport.

The contract includes 200 side door release systems and 160 gravity release systems. They can be used to drop loads of between 320 kg and 4 metric tons, depending on configuration.

France is the first European country to develop a new cargo drop system designed for the new A400M airlifter. It will replace the systems now in service, which were designed back in the 1960s.
