The firm will deploy its latest gas turbine technology for the project.

General Electric International, Inc. (GE) has been selected as the successful bidder for the 6,500 megawatt (MW) Hsinta and Taichung combined cycle power plants initiated by Taiwan Power Company (TPC), according to a press release.

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 has been awarded to deploy its latest gas turbine technology, the 7HA.03, with its matching steam turbine, generators, and HRSG at both sites. GE will supply 10 7HA.03 gas turbines, 5 steam turbines, 15 generators, 10 heat recovery steam generators (HRSG), 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 (REDA) energy policy that seeks to increase the gas-fired power ratio to 50% by year 2025.
