MHI Supplies Saudi Supercritical Power Plant
Japan’s Mitsubishi Heavy Industries has received an order for four sets of a 700-megawatt supercritical pressure steam turbine and generator, plus supercritical boiler components, for an oil-fired power plant in Saudi Arabia.
Hyundai Heavy Industries will build the 2,800-megawatt plant south of Jeddah for the Saudi Electricity Company. It will be the first heavy oil-fired supercritical power plant in the Kingdom, MHI said in a statement.
Supercritical pressure heavy oil-fired power generation provides higher generation efficiency than subcritical pressure generation and results in lower carbon dioxide emissions.
MHI will deliver the power equipment between September 2014 and March 2015. Mitsubishi Electric Company will supply the generators.
