Japan’s Mitsubishi Heavy Industries has won an order for a steam turbine with a capacity of around 90 MW for a pulp and paper plant in China.

The plant in Rizhao, Shandong Province, is owned and operated by Indonesian manufacturer Asia Symbol (Shandong) Pulp and Paper.

MHI previously delivered two steam turbines to Rizhao plant in 2008 and the latest order is slated to go on-stream in 2015.

The new turbine will be used primarily for in-house power generation to accommodate power demand associated with augmentation of the plant facility. In addition, steam will be partially extracted from the turbine and supplied for pulp and paper production processing.
