Three Japanese companies and one from Taiwan have jointly won a contract to build two power generating units at the Talin Thermal Power Plant in the Kaohsiung District in southern Taiwan, the companies said May 21.
Taiwan Power Co. (Taipower) awarded the contract to replace existing facilities at the plant, with the Unit 1 power generator expected to start commercial operations in 2016 and Unit 2 in 2017.
IHI Corp. will be responsible for supplying boilers and for technical and commercial leadership of the consortium. Sumitomo Corp. will be responsible for civil and installation work of steam turbines, generators and other auxiliary equipment supplied by Toshiba Corp.
Taipei-based CTCI Corp. will be responsible for executing civil and installation work for the boilers and the balance of plant.
Based on Taipower’s Long-Term Power Development Program, part of existing power generating units will be demolished and replaced with two ultra-supercritical pressure coal fired boilers with an output of 800 megawatts each at the plant.
