Train For Portland General Electric Carty Generating Station
LAKE MARY, Fla., June 4, 2013
LAKE MARY, Fla., June 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Mitsubishi Power Systems
Americas, Inc. (MPSA) received an order from Abengoa, through its U.S.
subsidiary, to supply a natural gas powered Combined Cycle Power Train for
installation at the Carty Generating Station, a new gas turbine combined cycle
power plant being built for Portland General Electric (PGE) near Boardman,
Oregon. The power train includes Mitsubishi's state-of-the-art M501GAC gas
turbine, SRT-50 reheat steam turbine, and heat recovery steam generator.
Once built, the Carty Generating Station will have 440 megawatts of baseload
generation capacity and be able to produce reliable power to meet the energy
needs of over 300,000 PGE customers. Construction of the power plant is
scheduled to be completed in Summer 2016. This will be the second power plant
in PGE's fleet to be powered by Mitsubishi's innovative power train
Mitsubishi's M501GAC gas turbine is one of the most efficient, large capacity
gas turbines in the world. Mitsubishi has received orders for more than 77
units of the G series turbine worldwide, including more than 39 units in North
America. The M501GAC gas turbine to be installed at the Carty Generating
Station will be manufactured at MPSA's Savannah Machinery Works, a modern gas
turbine manufacturing and service facility located in Savannah, GA.
Mitsubishi's SRT-50 steam turbine utilizes an advanced 50-inch last stage
blade for improved plant performance. The Carty Generating Station represents
Mitsubishi's fourteenth order for a steam turbine unit with this 50-inch blade
design which provides for higher efficiency turbines compared to units with
Gas turbine combined cycle power plants generate electricity in two stages
through the combined use of gas and steam turbines. High temperature exhaust
from the gas turbine is used to produce the steam that drives the steam
turbine. This configuration enables power plants to achieve higher thermal
efficiency, reduce fuel consumption, and lower emissions.
Under a separate long term service agreement, MPSA will provide the Carty
Generating Station with comprehensive turbine maintenance, repair and outage
services, replacement parts supply, and dedicated remote monitoring for its
