About the Model 501 / 701:

The Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems (MHPS) Model 501 / 701 series industrial gas turbines are single shaft, axial-flow, heavy-combustion turbines whose current power output is in the range of 114 to 470 MW (in simple-cycle mode).


The sole application of models 501 and 701 is utility/industrial power generation, including combined-cycle and cogeneration duty (including IPP).


The MHPS Model 501 / 701 series was privately developed by Westinghouse in conjunction with Mitsubishi and FiatAvio.


In production.

Total Produced:

By the first quarter of 2016, 482 MHPS Model 501 / 701 series gas turbines had been installed in 30 countries and territories worldwide.


The MHPS Model 501 / 701 series faces competition from the General Electric MS9001 (Model 9000/Frame 9) and Siemens' SGT5-2000/3000/4000 series.


1) M501J and M701J gas turbines maintain strong market presence; 2) MHPS offers both gas and steam turbines for cogeneration installations; and 3) Steadily rising demand for generation capacity ensures firm future for both gas turbines.
