The main equipments of both systems are two Hitachi H-25 gas turbines/generator sets, which will be supplied by Hitachi, Ltd. The order also includes concept and final planning, supply and erection of the components, quality assurance management and system commissioning. The two upstream systems will start commercial operations at the end of 2006 and the start of 2007.
