Kawasaki Receives Repeat Orders for Gas Turbine Generators from Korean Company.
Jun. 18, 2007
| Tokyo, June 18, 2007 – Kawasaki Machine Systems, Ltd. announced today that it has received orders for gas turbine generators from Samsung Techwin Co., Ltd. in Korea for use in cogeneration systems to be installed in two Korean hospitals, Samsung Medical Center and Gangnam St. Mary’s Hospital. The cogeneration systems will be delivered jointly by Kawasaki and Samsung Techwin. Kawasaki will supply the gas turbine generators and Samsung Techwin will supply the auxiliary equipment and installation work. The systems are scheduled to be up and running at the Samsung Medical Center in July 2007 and at Gangnam St. Mary’s Hospital in December 2007.|
Samsung Medical Center, the Samsung Group’s general hospital with approximately 1,200 beds, is located in Gangnam-gu, Seoul. The cogeneration system is comprised of a natural gas-fueled gas turbine power generation system employing Kawasaki’s M1T-13D gas turbine engine and a heat recovery steam boiler. It will supply 2,845 kW of electricity and 9 tons/hour of steam to the hospital. This is the first order Kawasaki received for a natural gas-fueled gas turbine generator used in a cogeneration system from Korea.
Gangnam St. Mary’s Hospital, with approximately 800 beds, is affiliated with the Catholic University of Korea in Seocho-gu, Seoul. The hospital is planning to build an additional ward with 1,200 beds and a research center. This system consists of a natural gas-fueled gas turbine power generation system, employing the 2,900kW M1T-13A and 1,500kW M1A-13A gas turbine engines, and a heat recovery steam boiler. The system will supply 4,400 kW of electricity and 13.5 tons/hour of steam to the hospital. It will also work as a stand-by power generation system. Kawasaki has also received an additional order for a 3,600kW stand-by gas turbine engine to be installed in the new ward of the hospital.
This recent double order is a testament to the superior environmental performance and lifecycle cost of Kawasaki gas turbine cogeneration systems. Kawasaki boasts a long proven track record backed up by its outstanding technological capabilities. Kawasaki and Samsung are working jointly to provide technical and economic assessment for the implementation of cogeneration systems that enhance energy efficiency and conservation.
