Mitsubishi Heavy Industries has been awarded a contract for supply of its M701F4 gas turbine and generators for installation at two gas turbine combined-cycle (GTCC) power generation plants which Uzbekenergo is constructing in Uzbekistan. Featuring a 320MW class M701F4 gas turbine, steam turbine, heat recovery steam generator (HRSG) and generator, the two GTCC power plants will support the country’s robust electricity demand.
The gas turbines will be manufactured and supplied by MHI, whereas Mitsubishi Electric Corporation is responsible for delivery of the generators. With Hyundai Engineering & Construction (Hyundai E&C) as the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contractor, the two power plants are scheduled to go on-stream in 2016.
Awarded by Daewoo International Corporation (DWIC), the contract covers delivery of two sets of M701F4 gas turbines for the power plants, which are scheduled to be built at the existing Talimarjan thermal power plant (TPP) in Qashqadaryo Province, Uzbekistan. The Talimarjan TPP expansion project is slated to be co-financed by the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) and the Asian Development Bank (ADB).
