MHPS completes the shipment of JAC gas turbines

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, recently. 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 and Mitsui & Co., Ltd. This is the first shipment of eight units that will comprise the gas turbine combined cycle (GTCC) power plants with a combined total output of 5,300 megawatts (MW).

Commercial operation is scheduled to start in 2021. The project will support the steady economic development in Thailand with a highly efficient source of clean energy.

The JAC gas turbines achieve greater efficiency by raising the turbine inlet temperature, while improving operability by shortening the start-up time with the latest air cooling system. The volume of CO2 emissions is reduced, and the system provides a generating capacity of 650 818MW (50Hz).
