MHPS is expected to install the gas turbines as the core equipment of a natural gas-fired cogeneration system, and the non-utility generation facility is expected to have an output of 62MW of electric power.

In addition, the facility is also capable of providing 150 tons steam per hour (t/h), during duct-firing, to the manufacturing process through a heat recovery boiler utilizing the exhaust from the gas turbine. Operations at the facility are scheduled to start in 2020.

MHPS said that similar to the previous H-25 gas turbine project orders received from China, the present order was also placed through Harbin Guanghan Gas Turbine (HGGT), a producer of ships and marine machinery.

The facility is expected to feature H-25 gas turbines, heat recovery boilers, and auxiliary equipment. MHPS, through HGGT, will deliver the main and auxiliary machinery for the gas turbines for the facility.

In March, MHPS signed a technology licensing agreement (TLA) with China Shipbuilding Industry Group and started licensing the H-25 system, and the arrangement is expected to further enhance MHPS’s presence in the Chinese market.

MHPS, in a statement, said: “The H-25 is a heavy-duty gas turbine(Note) with outstanding reliability confirmed by its record of long operating hours. Since the initial order in 1987, MHPS has established a solid track record of operating performance, selling more than 180 units worldwide (including this latest order).”

In April, the company secured an order from China Resources Power Group to provide two H-25 gas turbines for a thermal power station in Zhuhai City, Guangdong Province.

Under the contract, MHPS will supply units that consists of core equipment of a natural gas-fired gas turbine combined cycle (GTCC) power plant with combined output of 120MW.

Zhuhai China Resources Thermal Power, a wholly owned subsidiary of China Resources Power Group is developing the power plant project, with construction underway at the Fushan Industrial Park in Zhuhai City.
