Kawasaki CC
Location: Kanagawa
Operator: Tokyo Electric Power Co
Configuration: 4 X 500-MW single-shaft CCGT blocks with M701G2 gas turbines CHP, 2 X 710-MW CCGT blocks with M701J gas turbines
Fuel: LNG
Operation: 2007-2016
HRSG supplier: MHI
T/G supplier: MHI, Melco
EPC: MHI
Quick facts: This was the first installation of the steam-cooled 701G2 machine, the world's largest GT at completion of Unit-3 in Jun 2007 (rating 334 MW). Thermal efficiency is 59.1% LHV. Vertical HRSGs were used to minimize plant footprint and the modular 3,800t installations were shipped by barge from the MHI works in Nagasaki. The 710-MW MACC II blocks are design 61% thermal efficiency. Their construction began on 1 Mar 2013 and the units commissioned on 29 Jan 2016 and 29 Jun 2016, respectively. The stacks are 85m tall. Construction on the heavily urbanized site was challenging. Among other things 65ft deep tunnels were built under the existing plant (now demolished) for interconnection with the existing substation. The 500-MW blocks also can supply steam to ten neighboring industries. Photo dates to Feb 2016.
