Extending J-Series Leadership with the Air-Cooled M501JAC Gas Turbine
MHPS is revolutionizing power generation with the release of the M501JAC, a new J-series air-cooled gas turbine offering an unmatched combination of enhanced efficiency, proven reliability and lower-cost electricity that sets a new standard for the industry.
The MHPS JAC in a combined cycle one-on-one configuration produces 540 MW of power at a record-setting efficiency level exceeding 63 percent. It joins the MHPS J-series fleet, with its impressive 335,000 hours of documented commercial operation at a 99.3 percent level of reliability.
Incorporating more than 40 years of proven turbine design features, the MHPS JAC has environmentally friendly low levels of NOX, CO2, UHC and VOC emissions. Replacing older coal-fired turbine technology with the new JAC can cut CO2 emissions by nearly 70 percent.
Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems leads the way in technology and reliability. Before its release the JAC underwent more than 11,000 hours of commercial operation at a record 99.5 percent reliability. The JAC features an enhanced air-cooled combustor and advanced thermal barrier coating on the turbine blades. No other gas turbine on the market matches the performance of the MHPS J-series. MHPS has sold 45 J-series turbines, and 21 are currently in commercial operation. In fact, MHPS has more J- and G-series advanced-class gas turbines operating around the globe than any competitor.
