Completion of First Kawasaki-developed 100 MW Class Combined Cycle Power Plant
Sep. 17, 2020
Tokyo, September 17, 2020 — Kawasaki Heavy Industries, Ltd. announced today the completion for Kashima South Joint Power Corporation (Kamisu City, Ibaraki Prefecture) of its first in-house-developed 100 MW class combined cycle power plant (CCPP). This CCPP employs the L30A model 30 MW class made-in-Japan high-efficiency gas turbine featuring the highest output of all of Kawasaki gas turbines.
The newly completed CCPP is a 107 MW output plant in Kamisu, Ibaraki. Its main equipment comprises three L30A gas turbines, three heat recovery steam generators and one steam turbine, all made by Kawasaki. The plant uses a system whose functions include a cogeneration facility capable of supplying electricity and steam flexibly according to demand from surrounding factories. Kawasaki built the plant based on a full turnkey construction contract that included overall design of the plant as well as supply and installation of all main equipment.
Kashima South Joint Power Corporation is the operator of Kashima South Joint Power Station, the energy center for the Kashima Eastern Industrial Complex, and it supplies electricity and steam to surrounding factories. During performance verification testing, the new CCPP achieved a combined generating efficiency of more than 90 percent.
Efforts toward achieving low- and zero-carbon-emission societies are accelerating on a global scale. As demand grows on the energy market for ever-higher efficiencies, Kawasaki is leveraging the advantages of its CCPPs and diverse range of other energy products to actively develop its energy and environmental business. Through these efforts, the company is contributing toward the building of sustainable societies for the future while also responding to customer needs by providing comprehensive energy solutions that include both generation of electricity and heat.
