MHI will provide dual-shaft, 120-MW H-100 gas turbines as the mechanical drivers.

Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Ltd. (MHI) has reached an agreement with ExxonMobil and its co-venture partners to supply H-100 gas turbine and compressor packages for the Rovuma LNG Phase 1 project in Mozambique, Africa.
