Mitsubishi Power , a subsidiary of Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI), has won an order to upgrade the Makban Geothermal Power Plant in Laguna, Philippines. The Makban plant is located southeast of Manila, and is owned and operated by AP Renewables Inc (APRI).
Mitsubishi Power will supply a new set of steam turbine components with optimum design for Unit 1, one of ten geothermal units supplied by Mitsubishi Power over the years, to optimise its performance. The project is scheduled for completion in 2021.
Mitsubishi Power’s Nagasaki works will supply the steam turbine components for this project, while Mitsubishi Power’s local subsidiary MHI Power (Philippines) Plant Services will provide on-site installation services.
