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 M7A series has been around since the early 1990s.


The main application at present is electrical generation, including cogeneration and combined-cycle installations. No M7As have been ordered for mechanical load drive duty.


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


In production.

Total Produced:

At least 135 KHI M7A-02/-03 gas turbine machines/generator sets have been built and installed worldwide for electrical generation / cogeneration.


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


1) No publicized sales of the M7A since 2017;
