Tokyo, May 10, 2011 - Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Ltd. (MHI) has received an order for two steam-turbines, 350 megawatts (MW) each, to be installed at two large-scale coal-fired thermal power plants in Morocco, which Jorf Lasfar Energy Company 5&6 (JLEC 5&6), a power plant company owned by Abu Dhabi National Energy Company (TAQA), is to build. The turbines are slated to be delivered to a consortium formed by Daewoo Engineering & Construction Co., Ltd. (Daewoo E&C) and Mitsui & Co., Ltd. for the construction project.

The large-scale coal-fired power plants, in which the steam turbines are to be installed, will be built in the existing power station in the Jorf Lasfar district, near El Jadida, in the southwest of Casablanca. The two new power plants will be built as the No.5 and No.6 units to expand the station and adjoin existing power plants operated by Jorf Lasfar Energy Company (JLEC), also a subsidiary of TAQA. In addition to supplying the turbines, MHI will also be sending technical advisors.

Founded in 2005 with the goal of becoming a world leader in the energy sector, TAQA is a reference and one of the largest companies listed on the Abu Dhabi Stock Exchange. The company operates a wide range of energy businesses internationally, dealing in oil and gas development as well as electricity. Daewoo E&C, a major construction company in Korea, handles public facilities work, commercial and residential buildings as well as civil engineering projects for highways, ports and railroads, etc.

Going forward, MHI continues its aggressive marketing activities for its high-efficiency, high-reliability steam turbines in Japan and other countries.
