Shanghai Electric Gas Turbine Company and Ansaldo Energia have signed a contract worth about €60 million for the supply of the first Ansaldo Energia H-class GT36 gas turbine for the Minhang combined cycle power plant in China. Ansaldo said that the contract represents a key milestone for the introduction into the market of its H-Class gas turbine, and it further strengthens the long-term strategic partnership between it and Shanghai Electric.

The end customer for the 800 MW Minhang Power Plant project is Shanghai’s most important energy utility, Shanghai Electric Power Company, which is controlled by State Power Investment Company (SPIC), one of the five biggest power generation utilities in China.

Ansaldo Energia said that this contract added to the total of 30 gas turbines which it has on order around the world, with a combined production value of over €400 million.
