MHI to supply key parts for ultra-supercritical boilers to China.
Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Ltd. (MHI) said Monday it has won an order for four sets of major components for ultra-supercritical boilers from Harbin Boiler Co., a leading Chinese boiler maker.
MHI will supply the core components, starting in March 2005, while Harbin Boiler will manufacture the remaining equipment and assemble boilers for delivery to Huaneng Power International Inc., the major Japanese heavy machinery maker said without disclosing the value of the deal.
The boilers, each having a power-generation capacity of 1,000 megawatts, will be used at China's first ultra-supercritical power station to be built in Yuhuan, Zhejiang Province.
Harbin Boiler's order is in line with China's stepped-up effort to cope with environmental issues, especially increased emission of carbon dioxide (CO2). Ultra-supercritical boilers reduce the consumption of coal and the emission of CO2 by 4% to 5%, compared with conventional boilers, according to MHI.
