Pakistan Paper Company Orders Kawasaki Gas Turbine Power Generation Systems

Sep. 27, 2006

 Tokyo, September 27, 2006 — Kawasaki Heavy Industries, Ltd. announced today that it has received an order for four gas turbine power generation systems from Hyundai Engineering Co., Ltd. The systems, featuring Kawasaki’s proprietary 7,000 kW-class M7A-02 gas turbines as the core components, will go to Century Paper & Board Mills Ltd. (CPBM), one of Pakistan’s leading paper companies. Kawasaki Gas Turbine Asia (KGA), Kawasaki’s Kuala Lumpur-based gas turbine sales and service base for southeastern/western Asia, won this first M7A-02 power generation system order bound for Pakistan.

 Each of the four M7A-02 gas turbines will form a cogeneration system with a heat recovery boiler, and will be installed at CPBM’s factory in the suburbs of Lahore. They will generate 20,000 kW of electricity and supply 60 tons/hour of steam for a new paper production line. Kawasaki will deliver the gas turbine generators, while Hyundai Engineering will supply the boiler and auxiliary equipment, and CPBM will conduct installation work. The systems will start up in October 2007.

 CPBM is part of Pakistan’s Lakson Group, and has claimed the top paper market share in Pakistan. The company aims to reduce its electricity and steam supply expenditures by introducing the cogeneration systems.
