As Japan looks to gradually phase out the use of inefficient coal-fired thermal power generation plants and make the transition towards low-carbon energy production, EPC customer JGC Japan Corporation is leading by example with the first order for an SGT-800 gas turbine in the country from Siemens Energy. The order was secured with Siemens Energy for the industrial gas turbine and its related components to be installed for a power plant that JGC will build for Sumitomo Chemical in Chiba Works of Ichihara City in Chiba.
