The 70101 50Hz Combustion Turbine continues a long line of large heavy-duty single-shaft combustion turbines by combining the proven efficient and reliable concepts of the 50IF and 70W. The output of the 70101 is 255MW with combined cycle net efficiency of over 57%. A part of component development was conducted under the joint development program with Tohoku Electric Power Co., Inc. and a part of the design work was carried out under the cooperation with Westinghouse Electric Corporation in the
