Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems (MHPS) has received an order and begun work on a full turnkey contract for construction of three new units at the Anegasaki Thermal Power Station in Ichihara City, Chiba Prefecture. The plant is operated by JERA Power Anegasaki, part of JERA Co.
This project will replace the existing power station’s aging gas-fired power generation units 1-4 with three 650MW forced-air cooled M701JAC gas turbines, with an inlet temperature of 1650°C.
The upgrade will enhance efficiency and reduce the environmental load. The new units 1-3 are scheduled to begin operations successively from early 2023 through the summer, reaching a total output of 1950MW.
The project is being conducted as a joint venture between MHPS and Mitsubishi Electric Corporation, which will supply three generators and control systems under a full turnkey EPC contract.
