Siemens to supply first HL-class gas turbine to Taiwan (Photo credit: Siemens)Siemens Energy, together with its consortium partner CTCI Corporation of Taiwan, is to build the 1100 MW Sun Ba Power Phase II combined cycle power plant for the IPP Sun Ba Power Corporation.

It will be located in Tainan, SW Taiwan, and be fired with regasified liquefied natural gas. Siemens will also provide long-term service for the plant's core components. 

Sun Ba II, scheduled for completion in 2024, is designed as a multi-shaft combined cycle power plant, in which two gas turbines and one steam turbine each drive its own electrical generator. Siemens Energy's scope of supply includes the plant’s power island, consisting of two SGT6-9000HL gas turbines, one SST-5000 steam turbine, three SGen6-2000P generators, two heat recovery steam generators, and the SPPA-T3000 control system. The HL-class turbine has been designed to incorporate advanced technologies and is based on the H-class fleet that has more than two million operating hours. 

The service contract includes long-term service over 25 years for both gas turbines, the generators, the steam turbine, and the heat recovery steam generators. It also includes an option for digital service solutions. CTCI Corporation is responsible for the construction and installation, and the entire EPC contract for the balance of plant.
