Mitsubishi Power to Deliver Core Equipment for Uzbekistan’s Navoi 3 Plant

Published on: 

The Navoi 3 power generation facility will produce 600 MW of electric power and 200 Gcal/h of heat with an M701 JAC gas turbine combined-cycle system.

Mitsubishi Power has received a core equipment order for the third generation facility to be built at the Navoi power plant (Navoi 3) in the Republic of Uzbekistan. Operated by JSC Thermal Power Plants, Navoi 3 will now be powered with an M701 J-series air-cooled (JAC) gas turbine to generate 600 MW of electric power and 200 Gcal/h of heat. Commercial operation with Mitsubishi’s gas turbine combined-cycle (GTCC) system is expected to begin in 2026.

The Navoi generation facility is located approximately 360 km southwest of Uzbekistan’s capital, Tashkent. Previously, Mitsubishi Power had supplied GTCC power generation equipment for Navoi 1 and Navoi 2, which commenced operations in 2013 and 2019, respectively. Navoi 3 will deploy the same gas-fired GTCC power generation to supply electricity for the surrounding area, as well as industrial steam and district heating to the Navoi Free Economic Zone (Navoi FEZ).


In addition to delivering gas and steam turbines, Mitsubishi Power will design, procure, manufacture, and commission the core components for the power generation facilities and major auxiliary equipment, including air-cooled condensers and gas compressors. The Mitsubishi Electric Corporation will manufacture the generator for Navoi 3.

As of the latest order, Mitsubishi Power has an approximate 90% share of the large-scale gas turbine market in Uzbekistan, supporting the country’s power and heating needs. The company also fulfilled a series of orders for H-25 small- and medium-sized gas turbines for a city-based distributed natural gas-fired cogeneration facility under construction in Tashkent.

Mitsubishi Power contributes to the stable supply of electricity in Uzbekistan by offering high reliability through efficient maintenance services. Resources will continue to be dedicated toward adopting high-efficiency, environmentally conscious GTCC power generation equipment for the reliable supply of electric power in Uzbekistan.
