"To support manufacturing by providing a stable and inexpensive power supply in Chubu, Japan’s central region, we have been making unremitting efforts to construct power generation facilities that achieve the world's highest levels of output and efficiency,” said Satoru Katsuno, President & Director of Chubu Electric Power. “We believe that our constant quest for innovation led to this GUINESS WORLD RECORDS achievement.”
The Nishi-Nagoya Block-1 power plant is made up of GE’s three 7HA.01 gas turbines with Toshiba Energy Systems & Solutions (Toshiba ESS) Corporation’s steam turbine and generator technology, and overall plant system design and construction were achieved by Toshiba ESS. Providing more than 1,188 megawatts (MW) of power to the grid, that’s enough equivalent electricity to supply approximately 2.7 million average homes in Japan.
“We’re very proud to make history once again and to partner with Chubu and Toshiba to bring GE’s industry-leading HA turbine to Japan,” said Russell Stokes, President and Chief Executive Officer of GE Power.
