12 January 2023

The fourth and final M701JAC-based single shaft combined cycle unit at the Chonburi natural gas fuelled mega CCGT plant in Thailand entered operation on 1 October 2022. The plant, about 130 km southeast of Bangkok, is owned by a joint venture of Gulf Energy Development PCL and Mitsui, and operated by Gulf SRC Co Ltd.

This milestone signals completion of one of two 2650 MW M701JAC-based CCGTs power plants that Mitsubishi Power is supplying in Thailand, for which turnkey orders were secured in 2018. Construction of the second, to be operated by Gulf PD Co Ltd, is currently underway in Rayong Province.

In September 2022, the M701JAC gas turbine of the first Chonburi unit achieved 8000 actual operating hours (AOH), establishing what Mitsubishi describes as “an industry benchmark of reliability.”
