TOKYO -- Kawasaki Heavy Industries, Ltd. recently completed development of a combined cycle power plant (CCPP) boasting the world’s highest level of electrical efficiency and will now commence marketing activities. The CCPP employs the L30A model, a 30 MW class made-in-Japan high-efficiency gas turbine featuring the highest output of all of Kawasaki gas turbines.

A CCPP consists of 2 stages of power generator facilities. Primary power generation is done by gas turbine generator, and gas turbine exhaust is utilized as a heat source of a heat recovery steam generator (HRSG). Steam from that HRSG rotates a steam turbine generator as a secondary power. A CCPP has shorter startup time than a conventional steam turbine power plant of the same output and features excellent load response as well as high electrical efficiency. High electrical efficiency means minimal thermal energy discarded.

The newly developed CCPP is composed of two L30A gas turbines, two HRSGs, and one steam turbine, all produced by Kawasaki to make the CCPP a Kawasaki original power plant. Kawasaki brings together product technology and plant engineering capabilities cultivated over many years to achieve high efficiency in the combined cycle as a whole in addition to gas turbines alone. Total Electrical efficiency is 55.2% (reheat type) in the 100 MW class and 54.4% in the 90 MW class, both among the world’s highest levels of electrical efficiency.

According to Kawasaki, the world’s electrical power consumption is expected to increase in the coming years, with much of the increase occurring in Southeast Asia, which is seeing rapid economic growth. In addition to conventional natural gas output, the number of new shale gas supplier countries other than the United States is expected to increase as well. As a result, demand for construction of gas-fired thermal power plants will grow, and the CCPP market is also anticipated to expand in terms of both capacity and regions. In the distributed energy system market, where power producers are introducing new facilities and updating existing ones at an increasing rate due to factors such as expanded use of unstable renewable energy sources, there are marked demands for highly efficient equipment and excellent load responsiveness. Kawasaki’s CCPP should be able to respond to those demands.

OTTAWA, Ontario -- Lockheed Martin signed an agreement to supply approximately 17 MWh of GridStar Lithium energy storage systems to Peak Power Inc., a North American energy storage services provider. The units will be installed in Ontario, Canada, and along the East Coast of the United States.

Peak Power Inc. will use its own intelligent Synergy software, combined with GridStar Lithium energy storage systems, to forecast the most expensive peak demand events and shift energy consumption for its customers during these peak moments. This results in a reduced amount of peak demand on the grid and lower electricity costs for customers.

Lockheed Martin has delivered and has a pipeline of energy storage solutions to address a range of applications, including reducing peak loads on the electrical grid and integrating renewable energy sources with energy storage. These projects have been installed in many locations, including Canada.

NEW ORDER IN MEXICO FOR 100 MW IN THE WAKE OF THE LATEST WIND POWER AUCTION
Friday, April 20, 2018

MADRID -- Siemens Gamesa has secured a new order1 in Mexico for the supply of 100 MW as part of the last wind power auction held in the country in November 2017. This order marks a new milestone in Siemens Gamesa's positioning in Mexico where it has cemented itself as the leading OEM in recent years.

The agreement encompasses the installation of 29 units of the firm's SG 3.4-132 turbines at a wind farm located in the Mexican state of Coahuila. The company will supply the turbines in the first quarter of 2019.

Mexico is currently one of the wind power markets with the greatest growth potential. The electricity sector reforms passed in 2015 require that 35% of the country's electricity be generated from renewable sources by 2024. Current forecasts call for the installation of around 1 GW of wind capacity per annum in the coming years.

Since entering this market in 1999, Siemens Gamesa has installed 1,250 wind turbines in the country (more than 2,120 MW). The company is also an active player in the operation and maintenance segment.
