GE wins equipment contract for Hsinta and Taichung projects

8 September 2020

GE International is the successful bidder for the 6500 MW Hsinta and Taichung combined cycle power plants project initiated by Taiwan Power Company. GE will be working together with its local consortium partner, CTCI Corporation, to engineer, manufacture, and commission the combined cycle blocks which are planned to begin commercial operation in phases from 2024.

GE will deploy its latest gas turbine technology, the 7HA.03, with its matching steam turbine, generators and HRSG at both sites. The 7HA.03 is considered by GE to be the best evaluated technology striking the optimal balance for power output, efficiency and maintainability. GE will supply 10 7HA.03 gas turbines, 5 steam turbines, 15 generators, 10 heat recovery steam generators, and additional balance of plant equipment as part of the project scope. The award will become an order for GE following contract closure and payment which is expected within six months.

The new generating units will commence operations in phases from 2024, gradually replacing coal-fired power generating units, in line with Taiwan’s Renewable Energy Development Act  energy policy that seeks to increase the gas-fired power ratio to 50% by the year 2025.
