Mitsubishi to supply 2 gas turbines for 1.5 GW Uzbek CCGT power plant

Tashkent, April 15 - Neftegaz.RU. Japan Mitsubishi Power has received an order for 2 M701JAC gas turbines, the company's latest model in its air-cooled J-Series, for a 1,5 GW class natural-gas-fired GTCC (gas turbine combined cycle) power plant under construction in Sirdarya, Uzbekistan.

The JAC-Series are gas turbines featuring a forced-air-cooled combustor system and an optimized cooling structure.
They also have an extra-thick-film thermal barrier coating that enables more advanced cooling of turbine blades, and they adopt a compressor with a high pressure ratio.

The order follows the conclusion of an equipment supply agreement for the Sirdarya project between Saudi´s ACWA Power and China Gezhouba Group Co (CGGC) as the appointed project EPC contractor.

The Sirdarya project was planned by the Uzbek Government to provide cleaner, more efficient and cost-competitive gas power that can be utilized across industries in Uzbekistan.
This new plant will have capacity equivalent to 8% of Uzbek total generation capability and will be able to meet 15% of the country's overall power demand when complete.

Construction of the new power plant will also lead to the partial closure of existing Sirdarya thermal power plant with improved efficiency, which is expected to result in a reduction of CO2 emissions by 2.2 million tons per year.

In addition to providing 2 high-efficiency next-generation gas turbines as the plant's core equipment, Mitsubishi Power will also provide technical advisers to support construction and commissioning and 25-year long term service agreement to support reliable operation.
