Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Ltd. said Tuesday it has received an order for three gas turbine combined-cycle power generation systems from Morata Energia S.L. of Spain.

The deal is estimated at 80 billion yen to 100 billion yen, including a long-term service agreement on plant maintenance.

The three GTCC systems, which burn liquefied natural gas, will have a combined output of 1,350 megawatts for a power plant being built by Morata Energia, a unit of Belgium’s Electrabel S.A. They will go on stream in December 2009.

The power plant in Morata de Tajuna, about 50 km south of Madrid, will supply electricity to the Spanish capital, which depends on outlying regions for its supply.

The Spanish firm will be the first foreign company to use a Mitsubishi Heavy gas turbine.
