LAKE MARY, Fla. -- Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems (MHPS) has a multi-year service contract agreement with Falcon Group for the power generation company’s Altamira II and Rio Bravo II/III/IV Energy Facilities, located in Mexico. The installation of the thermal performance upgrades, MHPS-TOMONI digital solutions and contract extension further demonstrates MHPS’ long-term commitment to Latin America, a key growth market for the company.

As part of the agreement, MHPS will provide F4 technology and service upgrades that will increase overall reliability and availability at each of the four Falcon Group energy sites, improving the asset’s service life while extending inspection intervals to 32,000 hours. MHPS will provide MHPS-TOMONI digital solutions to maximize the plant’s output in alignment with Falcon Groups energy production efforts, and supplement further opportunities in the open energy market. The installation of the upgrades will commence in 2019 with completion by 2021.

The selection of MHPS service and parts solutions for the W501F - specifically the F4 upgrade - was influenced by the team’s experience with the advanced class gas turbines proven technology from the M501J and G frames, which operate at much higher firing temperatures than the 501F units. Fleet wide, the F4 upgrade has achieved more than one million successful operating hours and 11,000 starts.

Notably, the MHPS F4 upgrade features several of the company’s advanced technologies, such as advanced fan-shaped film cooling, enhanced cooling hole arrangement, advanced and thickened TBC, wall thickness optimization, optimized cooling pattern and usage of MHPS proven high strength alloy.

Overall, MHPS technology expertise allows customers to take advantage of decades of O&M and plant knowledge, to provide solutions such as parts upgrades or MHPS-TOMONI digital solutions in order to drive advanced analytics and adaptive control to achieve customer’s business goals.

SÃO PAULO, Brazil -- Pátria Investimentos, the Shell Group and Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems (MHPS) have announced the construction and operation of the gas-based thermal power plant Marlim Azul in Macaé, Rio de Janeiro. The partnership envisages construction of the plant and the sale of energy generated by it in both the captive market, through the auction held by the Brazilian electricity regulatory agency ANEEL in December 2017, and in the free energy contracting environment (ACL), through Shell Energy Brasil S.A. Pátria Investimentos will have a 50.1% stake in the project, while the Shell Group will have 29.9% and MHPS 20%.

The Marlim Azul (565 MW) plant was the first winning project at Brazil’s pre-salt gas-based energy auctions, offering one of the most competitive unit variable costs (CVU) among gas-based plants. The plant will go operational in 2022, generating additional energy, which will be sold in the free market. The joint venture will invest $700 million in the construction of the thermal power plant, which will receive gas supplied by Shell Brasil Petróleo Ltda.

The first plant to use the MHPS gas turbine equipped with M501JAC technology in Brazil, Marlim Azul is expected to dispatch more than 80%, which will enable it to complement the intermittence of renewable generation by exploring the natural gas reserves in the pre-salt layer. At the peak of plant construction, up to 1,500 direct jobs may be created.
