Dec. 21, 2005
Tokyo, December 21, 2005 – Kawasaki Heavy Industries, Ltd. announced today that it has delivered its first 8,000 kW-class flexible heat and power gas turbine cogeneration system to Denso Corp.'s Toyohashi Plant in Toyohashi, Aichi Prefecture, Japan. The GPC70PLUS system is equipped with a newly developed steam-injection gas turbine.
The GPC70PLUS comprises the M7A-02ST, part of the proprietary 7,000 kW-class M7A-02 gas turbine power generator lineup, which uses steam injection to enhance power output; and a heat recovery steam generator (HRSG) . When the demand for heat is low, surplus steam is injected into the gas turbine to increase the power output. The introduction of this cogeneration system will enable the Denso plant to optimize significant seasonal load fluctuations in electricity and steam.GPC70PLUS Specifications
