MITSUBISHI POWER TO UPGRADE TWO GAS TURBINES AT TUAS POWER TO ACHIEVE 16.9 KILO-TONNES OF CARBON EMI
Wednesday, November 30, 2022
TOKYO - Mitsubishi Power, a power solutions brand of Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Ltd. (MHI), has received a contract from Tuas Power Generation Pte. Ltd., a major power company in Singapore, for upgrades to two of the four M701F gas turbines (CCP3 and CCP4) in its gas turbine combined cycle (GTCC) power generation facility. This upgrade is part of Tuas Power’s efforts to achieve energy efficiency improvements and fulfil decarbonization measures in accordance with the Singapore government’s energy policies. It was adopted following a positive assessment of a proposal from Mitsubishi Power, which drew on the company’s extensive experience in gas turbine technologies. The project is scheduled for completion in 2023.

The Tuas Power facility is located in the southwest region of Singapore. Since 2001, Mitsubishi Power had supplied four gas turbines to Tuas Power, each with a rated output of 360 megawatts (MW).

The upgrade will introduce the latest gas turbine technologies, achieving a heat rate improvement by reducing the volume of cooling air, which allows for reduced carbon emissions of approximately 16.9 kilo-tonnes annually combined for the two CCPs.

r to receive this contract, which plays an important role in Singapore’s clean power generation while enhancing the asset value of Tuas Power’s facilities.”

Mitsubishi Power will continue to focus on similar projects covering renovation and performance improvements of existing facilities, along with its services business. Building on this contract from Tuas Power, Mitsubishi Power will remain committed to helping customers achieve stable and efficient power generation, and will continue to contribute to furthering decarbonization and the production of sustainable energy.

GE STEAM POWER AND NGSL COMPLETE PROJECT TO INCREASE EFFICIENCY OF NTPC’S RAMAGUNDAM POWER PLANT
Wednesday, November 30, 2022
NEW DELHI, India - E Power India Limited (GEPIL) and its affiliates in consortium with NGSL today announced milestone results achieved from its steam turbine renovation and modernization project at NTPC’s Ramagundam, Super Thermal Power Station, 3X200 MW unit 1&3, completed in 2021 and 2022, respectively. The plant is located at Ramagundam, Telangana.

This is first of NTPC’s energy efficient Steam Turbine project carried out and the team was able to deliver better than the agreed contractual commitments on output and performance, setting a new best-in-class performance benchmark for the heat rate for these units. Following the success of units 1&3, the team is now gearing up for installation and commissioning of unit 2.

The combined additional 20 MW output generated from both units will provide electricity to approximately 44,100 Indian houses. The reduction in CO2 emissions is equivalent to *141,200 cars taken off the roads.

Supporting the ‘Make in India’ initiative by the government of India, some parts of the project requirements were fulfilled locally from India, including LP turbine manufacturing, and supply by the GE facility in Sanand, Gujarat and sourcing of critical auxiliary components from various vendors in India.

In 2017, GE Steam Power completed a first-of-its-kind Steam Turbine shaft line retrofit for Ukai thermal power station for BHEL 200-MW-class units in India, aimed at increasing power, efficiency, and reliability while also reducing emissions. Not only did the retrofit extend the unit’s life by 25 years, but also restored its output back to its original capacity of 200 MW.

PLN NUSANTARA POWER AND MITSUBISHI POWER’S MUARA KARANG POWER PLANT RECOGNIZED
Monday, November 28, 2022
SINGAPORE -- The third block of the Muara Karang Gas Turbine Combined Cycle (GTCC) power plant operated by PT. PLN (Persero) subsidiary PT. PLN Nusantara Power (PNP) and constructed by Mitsubishi Power, has won two awards at the Asian Power Awards 2022. It was conferred the Gold award for Gas Engine Combined Cycle Power Project of the Year (regional award) and Gas Power Project of the Year Indonesia (country award).

Operating with 60.7% efficiency and heat rate of 1,415 kCal/kWh, the 500 MW facility is the most efficient power generation facility in Indonesia, and is one of the most advanced in terms of its environmental performance and generation costs. It plays a key role in meeting the rapidly rising demand for energy in West Java and supports the Indonesian government’s plans to boost national power supply capability by an additional 35 GW between 2015 and 2019, and a further 45 GW by 2025.

In 2016, Mitsubishi Power received an order for the full turnkey engineering, procurement, and construction solution of the third block of the Muara Karang power plant to increase the facility’s power generation capacity. As part of the project, the company supplied an M701F gas turbine and a steam turbine, and provided maintenance support including installation of advanced control systems, remote monitoring and assignment of a full-time on-site service engineer. Despite challenges due to the pandemic, Mitsubishi Power managed to complete the expansion a month ahead of schedule in October 2021.

The award is testament to Mitsubishi Power Indonesia’s strong legacy and technical expertise in power generation and partnerships across the country to support energy sector development in various ways. In addition to supporting Indonesia over the past 50 years, Mitsubishi Power Indonesia had helped facilitate visits as well as the exchange of expertise and knowledge between Japan and Indonesia to elevate efforts around the Muara Karang Power Plant.

Additionally, Mitsubishi Power recently signed an MoU with Indonesia Power to explore adapting less carbon intensive fuels in its power plants and embarked on a feasibility study for using ammonia in gas turbines with Institut Teknologi Bandung (ITB). Since 2020, it has also been working with ITB to lecture on topics ranging from big data analysis, biomass energy and hydrogen usage to train Indonesia’s future engineers.

The presentation of the 18th iteration of the Awards, which recognizes and celebrates ground-breaking projects and trailblazing initiatives in Asia’s power sector, was held in a virtual ceremony on 25 November 2022.
