John Cockerill awarded an order for the design and supply of a huge heat recovery boiler in Singapore

Hydrogen-Ready Power Plant of Sembcorp Industries in Singapore

September 07th 2023

The John Cockerill Energy teams have just been awarded an order for the design and supply of a huge heat recovery boiler for Mitsubishi Japan to be installed in a 600 MW hydrogen-ready power plant in Singapore.

On 1st September, John Cockerill was awarded by Mitsubishi Takasago a new order for the design and supply of a heat recovery steam generator (HRSG) for the new combined cycle power plant of Banyan in Singapore. This new 600 MW hydrogen-ready power plant will be built for Sembcorp Industries, a fully owned subsidiary of Sembcorp Cogen Pte Ltd and is expected to be operational by 2026. Located at Sembcorp’s upcoming multi-utilities center on the Jurong Island, this high efficiency combined cycle power station will replace an old plant. It has been designed to operate with either natural gas or with a blending of natural gas with hydrogen. It will also have a provision to operate completely on hydrogen in future. The use of hydrogen instead of natural gas fuel will enable to significantly reduce direct greenhouse carbon emissions.

The new John Cockerill boiler will be a huge boiler of horizontal, drum type, 3 pressure level with reheat and will be installed behind a 701JAC gas turbine. Our engineers have included a CO catalyst, which will control the carbon emissions during plant operation. The heating surface of this HRSG will be impressive with more than 800.000 m². The future power station of Banyan will contribute to generate electricity for the grid and steam for industrial companies on the Jurong Island. As for our most recent order with the same customer, Mitsubishi Japan, at Keppel (Singapore), the EPC contractor is a consortium between Mitsubishi Japan and Jurong Engineering Limited.

The performances of our Aftersales experts last year at the Keppel site (Singapore), the job executed by our project team for our new Keppel project, still in Singapore, as well as our commercial relationship with Mitsubishi Japan were strong assets to obtain this new order.
