- 31/07/2016Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems, Ltd. (MHPS) has received an order
for natural-gas-fired gas turbine combined cycle (GTCC) power
generation system equipment for Lamma Power Station Extension —
Unit 10 (output: 350 megawatts [MW]) to be built in Hong Kong by
The Hongkong Electric Co., Ltd. (HK Electric).
Under the prime contractor on the project, Mitsubishi Corporation (MC),
MHPS will supply the main components of the power plant. Operation
of the Unit 10 is scheduled to commence in January 2020.
The newly ordered GTCC power generation facilities will be constructed on Lamma Island, which is situated to the southwest of Hong Kong Island, adjacent to existing Unit 9.
The work is part of a large-scale project under way in line with the government authority’s policy targeting expansion of Hong Kong’s ratio of gas-fired power generation as a way of reducing environmental impact. Once in operation, the new facility will respond to Hong Kong Island’s robust power demand.
