The prefabricated supermodules are for three GE heat recovery steam generators to be installed at the Goi combined cycle power plant in Chiba Prefecture east of Tokyo.
GE is working with Toshiba on installing the supermodules at the plant.
”We’re proud to celebrate the incredible journey of building and delivering these supermodules,” said Jason Cooper, president and CEO of heavy-duty gas turbine business, GE Vernova Gas Power, “which each weigh approximately 2500 metric tons and measure between 43 to 46 m in height, almost as tall as the Arc de Triomphe in Paris or a 15-floor building, to their final destination.”
Powered by three GE 9HA.02 gas turbines, the 2340 MW Goi plant will be LNG-fuelled and is expected to enter commercial operation in phases, starting from 2024. In addition to the gas turbines for this project, GE has also also delivered the three HRSGs, with pressure part modules fabricated at GE’s manufacturing facility in Changwon, South Korea, and the supermodules assembled in Tongyeong, South Korea.
