MHPS to refurbish Mongolia’s largest thermal coal power plant
Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems Ltd. (MHPS) has received an order to refurbish eight units at the Ulaanbaatar thermal coal-fired power plant No.4, state owned stock company, which is Mongolia’s largest coal-fired thermal power generation plant.
MHPS will carry out the refurbishment work in cooperation with MCS International LLC, Mongolia’s largest engineering company. Refurbishment work is expected to be completion in October 2018.
The project, which is financed by a Japanese ODA loan from the Japan International Corporation Agency (JICA), aims to improve the power plant’s power generation efficiency and extending the facility’s service life. The refurbishment, including addition/renewal of related equipment, will be performed on eight power generation units at the thermal power plant in Ulaanbaatar.
Core components of the coal pulverisers in units No. 5 through No. 8 will be renewed to extend their service life, while soot blowers will be added to all units from No.1 to No. 8 to prevent fall-off in heat-exchange efficiency. When completed, the refurbishment is expected to contribute to the realisation of a more stable power supply.
Through this refurbishment to improve power generation capacity, MHPS hopes to continuously contribute to the development of Mongolia’s economic expansion.
