Mitsubishi Power has received an order for an H-25 gas turbine from a Taiwanese petrochemical firm in an effort to reduce carbon emissions.

The 30MW capacity turbine will be the core of a new natural gas-fired cogeneration facility at Chang Chun Petrochemical Co.’s Miaoli factory in north-central Taiwan.

The unit, scheduled to begin operating in 2025, will provide power for the company’s factories and steam for manufacturing processes.

The gas turbine will replace the existing oil and coal-fired boiler facility to reduce emissions in line with Taiwan’s energy policy.

Mitsubishi Power will supply the H-25 gas turbine and auxiliary machinery, and dispatch engineers to provide support for installation and trial operations.

According to Mitsubishi Power, compared to a conventional boiler type cogeneration plant, the H-25 heavy-duty gas turbine contributes to greater plant efficiency and reduced CO2 emissions.

This is the second H-25 gas turbine that Mitsubishi Power will supply to Chang Chun Group, following a unit for a Chang Chun Plastics factory in 2022.

Since 1984, Mitsubishi Power has supplied Chang Chun Group with major equipment for the power and cogeneration facilities at its factories, including nine steam turbines and five boilers.

The H-25 Series gas turbines were developed for utility customers and industrial customers in both 50 Hz and 60 Hz regions. Its first unit came into commercial operation in 1988.
