Mitsubishi Power to renovate Taiwanese CCGT
Mitsubishi Power, a unit of Japan’s Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI), has won a contract from Taiwan’s state-owned Taiwan Power Company for a renovation project of power generation equipment at the Datan power plant in the city of Taoyuan, MHI said on July 5.
The contract covers a total of four-unit of combined cycle gas turbine (CCGT) power plant (unit 3 to unit 6), comprising a total of eight gas turbines. The aim of the renovation project is to reduce emissions of nitrogen oxide (NOx) while maintaining generating capacity. Completion is scheduled for 2025.
The Datan power plant is a natural gas-fired power plant located approximately 50 km west of Taipei. It has a total of 20 gas turbines including units 8 and 9, currently under construction. Once all facilities are completed and operational, the plant will have a total combined output of approximately 7 GW. Mitsubishi Power has supplied 14 of these gas turbines, for units 1 to 6.
The six turbines for units 1 and 2 are M501F models, and the remaining eight are M501G models. This project covers the M501G models, with work conducted on each unit in succession.
