Mitsubishi Power to manufacture Lamma Power Station's GTCC equipment

The new unit is expected to begin operation in early 2029.

Mitsubishi Power was tapped for a natural-gas-fired gas turbine combined cycle (GTCC) power generation system equipment for Lamma Power Station's Unit 13.

In a statement, Mitsubishi Power said this new unit has an output of 380 megawatts and will start operating in early 2029. 

This latest order from Lamma Power Station follows previous ones for Units 10, 11, and 12 from July 2015.

Unit 13 will be built in Hong Kong by The Hongkong Electric Co., Ltd. The new GTCC facilities will be constructed on Lamma Island, located southwest of Hong Kong Island next to the existing units.

“The work is part of a large-scale project in line with the Hong Kong government authority's policy to increase the ratio of gas-fired power generation, as gas is an energy transition fuel that will reduce environmental impact by providing benefits such as reduction of carbon emissions,” Mitsubishi said.

The generator will be produced by Mitsubishi Generator Co., LTD, a new company formed through the integrating power-generator systems businesses of Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Ltd. and Mitsubishi Electric Corporation.
