Tohoku Electric Power Co., Inc. and Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Ltd. have begun a joint development program on key technologies for a next generation gas turbine which aims for a combined cycle efficiency over 55%. Under the program, advanced cooling technologies, better heat resistant materials and thy low NOx (DLN) combustion technologies are being developed. For verifying high temperature technologies, turbine testing is going to be performed using the HTDU (High Temperature Demonstration Unit) at Takasago Machinery Works, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Ltd.

This paper describes the general description of the HTDU facility and plans for testing a turbine at a firing temperature of 1500°C.
