This facility is located in the Niihama area of ​​the Ehime Plant of Sumitomo Chemical Co., Ltd., and is a 150,000 kW-class gas turbine power generation facility that uses three LM6000 (*1) PF gas turbines for aero engine conversion. Using natural gas as the main fuel, the plan is to effectively use hydrogen, a by-product gas generated at chemical plants. In addition, by adopting a combined cycle power generation system with excellent power generation efficiency and building a cogeneration system that supplies heat and power to supply steam, customers will be able to save energy and reduce carbon dioxide emissions.
IHI and IPS will continue to provide power generation equipment that boasts excellent environmental performance, high power generation efficiency and reliability, as well as operational support throughout the life cycle, including maintenance and operation support services. We will contribute to the realization of a model society and a comfortable and secure autonomous decentralized community.
