GE & Partner to Supply 6.5 GW of Gas Gen in Taiwan
General Electric (GE) and Taiwanese contractor CTCI Corp have won a contract to provide five combined-cycle gas-fired power generating units with a combined capacity of 6,500 GW for two power plants in Taiwan.
Three of the 1,300-MW units will be installed at the Hsinta power plant, while two will be added at the Taichung station, CTCI said in a statement on September 4. Both facilities belong to state-owned utility Taiwan Power Co. CTCI will undertake engineering and construction work, while GE will supply 10 of its 7HA.03 gas turbines, with matching steam turbines, generators and heat-recovery systems.
The new units are due to come online in phases from 2024, helping Taiwan reach its goal of expanding the share of gas in its power mix to 50% by 2025.
