    TEPCO Fuel & Power, Inc. Futtsu Thermal Power Station, Group 2, H-100 Series Gas Turbine Replacement Work

    Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems, Ltd.

    Due to its high efficiency being recognized, the H-100 series gas turbine has been adopted by customers who are aiming at improvement in the efficiency of existing power plants to replace existing, older types of gas turbines. Recently, the H-100 (50 Hz) was adopted as the replacement for the Futtsu Thermal Power Station Group 2 of TEPCO Fuel & Power, Inc. This replacement also contributes to improvement in the plant efficiency of the power generation plant and a reduction in CO2 emissions. Currently, the renewal of No. 1 and No. 5 of Group 2 has been completed and their commercial operation is underway.
