Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems (MHPS) has announced that their global fleet of J-Series gas turbines had amassed over 750,000 hours of commercial operation.

The global J-Series fleet now includes 39 turbines in commercial operation, with 28 of those exceeding 8,000 hours of operation, and the fleet leader having more than 45,000 hours of operation. MHPS has delivered every J-Series turbine on time. Most importantly, the MHPS J-Series has achieved 99.3% fleet reliability since introduction.


“We lead the industry in the reliable introduction of products and technology. This is what our customers expect of MHPS, and we won’t take shortcuts,” added Muyama. “The best evidence of our continuing commitment to reliability is that we’re now building a second 60 Hz J-Series combined cycle power plant at our factory in Takasago, Japan. This power plant will enter commercial operation in 2020 and will demonstrate the reliability of the world’s first 65% efficient autonomous power plant. That is a Change in Power.”
