Mitsubishi Power, a power solutions brand of Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Ltd. (MHI), has received an order for one system of core equipment for a high-efficiency power generation facility, including a state-of-the-art M701JAC (J-series Air-Cooled) gas turbine, for the third facility planned to be built at the Navoi Power Plant (Navoi 3) by JSC Thermal Power Plants, the state electric power corporation of the Republic of Uzbekistan. The planned system will comprise a Gas Turbine Combined Cycle (GTCC) to generate 600 megawatts (MW) of electric power and 200 Gcal/h of heat. Commercial operation is scheduled to start in 2026. This is the third order received by Mitsubishi Power for GTCC equipment for the Navoi Power Plant.

The Navoi Power Plant is located approximately 360 km southwest of the capital of Tashkent. Mitsubishi Power had previously supplied GTCC power generation equipment for the nearby power plants Navoi 1 and Navoi 2, which started operations in 2013 and 2019, respectively. Navoi 3 will also utilize gas-fired GTCC power generation to supply electricity to the surrounding area, as well as industrial steam and district heating to the Navoi Free Economic Zone (Navoi FEZ).

In addition to supplying the gas and steam turbines, Mitsubishi Power will handle the design, procurement, manufacture, and commissioning of the core components of the power generation facilities and major auxiliary equipment, such as air-cooled condensers and gas compressors. The generator will be manufactured by Mitsubishi Electric Corporation.
