Mitsubishi Hong Kong Retrofit

Lamma Power Station M701D/DA update

Mitsubishi Power is reprovisioning the GT5, GT6, and GT7 gas turbines at the Lamma Power Station for Hongkong Electric Co., Ltd. (HK Electric). This project will make use of the existing M701DA gas turbines at the station and is scheduled for completion in 2025.

Lamma Power Station is located on Lamma Island, southwest of Hong Kong Island. The three gas turbine systems use Mitsubishi Power's M701D series gas turbines. Mitsubishi Power supplies the power generation systems, and the generators are manufactured by Mitsubishi Electric Corporation.

HK Electric is a top power company in Hong Kong, and the sole electricity provider to both Hong Kong Island and Lamma Island. Mitsubishi Power has delivered numerous core power generation system components for the Lamma Power Station, including gas turbines, steam turbines, and boilers. While the power station will continue its gas turbine combined cycle (GTCC) operations, the need for refitting of key existing facilities as a backup power source is evident.


By further focusing on thermal power generation equipment like GTCC, as well as facilities powered by fuel derived from renewable energy, Mitsubishi Power will advance its global energy transition strategy with the aim of sustainability.
