About Kawasaki

About Kawasaki

The history of Kawasaki’s gas turbines started with the development of jet engines in 1943. In 1973, we developed Japan’s first purely domestic gas turbine utilizing our advanced production technology. As a pioneer in gas turbines and gas engines, we have been meeting the needs of many customers around the world for about 50 years.

Currently, Kawasaki Green Gas Turbine has delivered a total of 12,500 units worldwide, with a market share of over 70% in Japan of 30,000 kW or less. Kawasaki Green Gas Engine, which was developed from a long-established marine reciprocating engine, boasts 51% of the world’s highest generation efficiency in the 8MW class, with a share of more than 80% in Japan.

Reason 03

Cost and CO2 reduction
by cogeneration system

A cogeneration system drives a gas turbine or gas engine by using primary energy as fuel and generates continuously multiple types of secondary energy such as electricity and useful heat (e.g., steam, cold and hot water).
Compared to conventional energy systems, a cogeneration system achieves an energy utility cost saving and a reduction of CO2 emissions. Kawasaki offers optimal solutions that meet the diverse needs of our customers with a wide range of products from 1,500kW to 30,000kW.

To simulate cost reduction and CO2 reduction effect by introducing a cogeneration system.

Case Study

Energy Supply Business Gas engine

Berkprai

Optimal configuration and operation “Hybrid combined cycle”

Thai power plant operator Berkprai Cogeneration Co., Ltd., who has ordered 3 units of KG-18-V, is an 100 MW power plant that makes use of a gas engine and gas turbine hybrid combined cycle system, which has very few precedents even on a global scale.
The biggest challenge for the plant is to introduce power generation equipment with excellent environmental friendliness as well as being able to generate power efficiently and stably in response to differing daytime and nighttime power demand with flexible and optimized operation.
Each of the gas engines ordered for this project has a generation output of 7,800 kW, and the plant operator will utilize them during daytime peak-demand hours by employing the equipment’s world-leading generation efficiency as well as its high flexibility characterized by fast operation startup and shutdown. The electric power generated will be sold to the state-run Electric Generating Authority of Thailand (EGAT).
Saved up to RM 8 million annually by Co-generation system and less than 5 years payback
Industrial power generation Gas turbine

IOI Acidchem

Saved up to RM 8 million annually by Co-generation system and less than 5 years payback

Long before year 2010, IOI Acidchem had been exploring the possibility of applying Cogeneration system at its plant as a way to improve plant’s overall efficiency and reduce operation cost simultaneously, besides replacing the aging boiler and other aging infrastructures. The time is finally ripe during year 2014, when gas supply to plant eventually stabilized paired with the introduction of Green Investment Tax Allowance (GITA) by Malaysian Government under provision of Budget 2014, which identifies Green Technology as one of the drivers of nation’s future economy.

Knowing that Kawasaki has always been at the forefront in promoting reliable Cogeneration system, more so after the establishment of Kawasaki Gas Turbine Asia (KGA) in year 2005. IOI Acidchem has chosen Kawasaki Gas Turbine Generator GPB80D for its Cogeneration system, marks the first Gas Turbine Cogeneration system operates in Malaysian Oleochemicals industry.

The Cogeneration system in IOI Acidchem runs parallel with the grid equipped with supplementary burner to generate additional steam, hot standby package boiler as back-up. This Cogeneration can achieve up to 93% total efficiency, not only it has helped IOI Acidchem saved up to RM 8 million annually, it has also improved overall plant reliability and has reduced CO2 emission substantially, it has safeguarded the benefit of our environment.

Worthy Investment. Less than 5 years payback!

Siam Darby

Two words for Kawasaki - Trust & Reliability!

When comes to Gas Cogeneration District Cooling system, Tractors Malaysia (Sime Darby Industrial) is one of the early adopters in Malaysia, while many commercial sectors were still relying on conventional air conditioning methods.
With the installation of GPB15 Gas Turbine Cogeneration system at Tractors Engineering Complex (TEC), it provides the convenience to the complex with around 1.3 MW of electricity and also 1,000 USRT chilled water. The chilled water is generated via Kawasaki Steam Fired Absorption chiller, of which the steam is churned out from Heat Recovery Steam Generator (HRSG), which is taking the heat from the exhaust of Gas Turbine. The GPB15 Gas Turbine is able to be started and stopped daily according to the demand of normal working hours of TEC. It has been running for more than 20 years and will still be running and is a testament of very high reliability and long service lifetime of the Kawasaki Gas Turbine, and Absorption Chiller.
Last but not least, this project spearheaded the partnership between KGA and Sime Darby Energy Solutions for Malaysian Cogeneration market. Honest partnership comes with the right affiliate can lead towards an incredible impact on business success. Having been business partners for years, Kawasaki and Sime Darby Energy Solutions have built a lifetime partnership. Along the way, we have created together an excellent relationship service on a foundation based on integrity, transparency, honesty, generosity, intelligence and energy. We believe these traits will lead us to even more cooperation and good work in the years to come as lifetime partners.

High utilization of Co-generation system

We have achieved high utilization of our co-generation power plant due to KHI’s reliable gas turbine. Even in the case of grid trouble, we can continue to supply electricity to client’s factory since gas turbine goes into island operation. Also, we have minimized the downtime due to KGA’s prompt response to our request in the case of gas turbine troubles.

First Kawasaki-developed 100 MW Class Combined Cycle Power Plant
Energy supply business CCPP

South Kashima Power Plant

First Kawasaki-developed 100 MW Class Combined Cycle Power Plant

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.
