MHPS Signs Contract on Project to Construct Lignite-fired Ultra-supercritical-pressure Thermal Power Unit in Poland
-- New Facility to Apply Company's Proprietary Technologies in Low-grade Coal Combustion for Boilers --


Yokohama, July 17, 2014 - Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems Europe GmbH (MHPS-EDE), a group company of Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems, Ltd. (MHPS), has signed a contract, jointly with two European firms, for a project to build a lignite-fired ultra-supercritical-pressure thermal power unit at Turów, Poland, for a power generation company under the corporate umbrella of Polska Grupa Energetyczna S.A. (PGE), a state-controlled power provider listed on Warsaw Stock Exchange in Poland. The total amount of the order placed to the consortium of the three companies for the construction of a 450 megawatts (MW) power unit is approximately 110 billion yen (3.25 billion Zloty). The project's aim is to use MHPS's proprietary technologies in low-grade coal combustion for boilers in order to enable efficient use of lignite. The plant is slated to commence operations in the middle of 2019.
