About the Kawasaki M7A:

The Kawasaki Heavy Industries (KHI) M7A is a single-shaft, simple-cycle, axial-flow, high-efficiency gas turbine engine in the 5.5 to 7.4 MW class.


The main application at present is electrical generation, including cogeneration and combined-cycle installations. No M7A-01s or M7A-02s have been ordered for mechanical load drive duty.


The M7A was privately developed by Kawasaki Heavy Industries (KHI).


In production.

Total Produced:

Through 2015, approximately 122 M7A-02/-03 gas turbine machines/generator sets were built and installed worldwide for electrical generation/cogeneration.


In the electrical generation arena, the M7A-03D's greatest competition comes from the Solar Taurus 60, Zorya-Mashproekt UGT 6000, Siemens SGT-200 (nee Tornado), Rolls Royce 501 KH5, and General Electric PGT5B.


1) The M7A-03D offers increased load and higher efficiency;
2) Distributed power supplies for industrial complexes likely to be a growing market area; and 3) There appears to be a 60/40 split between baseload and standby generation sales.
