Taiwan’s engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) leader CTCI Corporation and consortium partner, General Electric International Inc (GE), secured a record-breaking multi-billion dollar EPC contract for five combined cycle gas-fired power generating units at two power plants in Taiwan.
In partnership with U.S. global company, GE, the consortium was selected for the project which includes works for three new generating units at Hsinta Power Plant with 3,900 MW installed capacity and two new generating units at Taichung Power Plant with 2,600 MW installed capacity, both of which are owned by Taiwan Power Company, the state-owned electric power utility corporation.
“We are pleased to be part of the government’s effort to bring cleaner energy,” said Michael Yang, Chairman of CTCI Corporation. “The result is also a recognition of CTCI Corporation and GE’s proven track records in the power industry.”
CTCI Corporation will provide engineering and construction of civil work and erection for the generating units, as well as whole work of balance of plant. GE will deploy ten units of its latest gas turbine technology, the 7HA.03, with its matching steam turbine, generators and HRSG at both sites. The 7HA.03 is the best evaluated technology striking the optimal balance for power output, efficiency and maintainability.
“Building on a proven track record of delivering and commissioning projects in Taiwan, GE is proud to support Taiwan Power Company in their energy transition program to increase electricity production capacity with more efficient technologies, and bring fast, flexible power to Taiwan,” said Ramesh Singaram, President and CEO of GE Gas Power Asia.
The new generating units will commence operations in phases from 2024, gradually replacing coal-fired power generating units, in line with Taiwan government’s non-nuclear and clean energy policy that seeks to increase gas- fired power ratio to 50% by year 2025.
CTCI Corporation has extensive track records in power plant EPC in Taiwan and Southeast Asia, including nuclear, thermal, cogeneration, and combined cycle power plants. In addition, its parent CTCI Group continues to be a strong supporter of the government’s energy diversification policies by tapping into renewable energy sectors such as offshore wind, solar power, and biomass. For GE, the project builds on the company’s proven track record in Taiwan, where GE’s latest HA technology will power the Datan 7, 8 & 9 combined-cycle power plants.
