Thermal power generation systems manufacturer Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems (MHPS) has received an order to provide a steam turbine power generation system for a pulp and paper mill in Sumatra, Indonesia.
With an output of 97 MW, the system will be used as an in-house power source, while steam generated from energy production will be used in the pulp and paper production processes. The new system will be delivered through global integrated business enterprise Mitsubishi Corporation and is scheduled to begin operations at the end of next year.
As low-pressure steam will be supplied for the mill’s production processes, a back-pressure turbine will be adopted. This type of turbine is simultaneously capable of supplying low-pressure steam as well as generating the power.
The power generation system will consist of the back-pressure turbine, a boiler and a generator. MHPS will supply the core components such as the steam turbine and the generator. In addition, an oil unit and instrumentation control devices will also be supplied. MHPS will dispatch engineering staff to support equipment installation and test operations.
The steam turbine will be designed in-house at MHPS and manufactured by turbine product manufacturer Qingdao Jieneng Steam Turbine Group (QJST), a partner located in China. Quality control will be managed by both MHPS and Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems Jieneng (Qingdao) Steam Turbine Group, a Chinese joint venture of MHPS and QJST.
Over the years, MHPS has forged strong business ties with the pulp and paper mill group, having previously delivered six sets of steam turbine power generation systems for their mills in Indonesia and China. The latest order highlights MHPS’s robust track record and the outstanding reputation of the reliability of the systems already delivered.
MHPS is well-positioned to provide total solutions that incorporate a broad lineup of steam turbines for industrial, in-house, thermal, nuclear and geothermal power generation. It will continue to meet a variety of market needs, supporting stable power supplies and economic and industrial development globally.
