Mitsubishi Power, a prominent player in gas turbine technology, has confirmed the expansion of its operational footprint in Europe with the establishment of its Gas Turbine Combined Cycle (GTCC) EMEA business unit, which will focus on selling the company’s successful J-Series air cooled gas turbines. These GTs have a reliability rating of 99.6% and an efficiency rating of over 64%. They can operate on a mixture of up to 30 % hydrogen wiht 70 % natural gas, an H2 component that can increased to 100 % hydrogen in the future. It is expected to play a crucial role in helping countries across Europe meet ambitious net zero carbon emissions targets.
The new business unit will be located in Dubai and supported by Mitsubishi Power’s dynamic services centres across the region. It will be led by Jose Aguas, vp GTCC Sales EMEA, and Khalid Salem, GTCC Business Unit leader EMEA.
Europe has become a leader in rapid decarbonisation. With ambitious net zero targets, governments across the region have begun the process of decommissioning coal-fired power stations and broadening their energy mix to include new sources of power generation. Aguas will lead efforts to grow Mitsubishi Power’s GTCC presence across Europe.
