A unit of German engineering giant Siemens has secured a contract to build a 1.1 gigawatt LNG power plant for Taiwan’s independent energy producer Sun Ba Power.
Siemens Energy, together with its consortium partner CTCI Corporation, would build and supply the Sun Ba Power Phase II combined cycle power plant, it said in a statement on Monday.
Regasified liquefied natural gas (LNG) will power the new facility.
The plant in Tainan, southwestern Taiwan, is poised to enable “particularly low-emission, economical, and flexible power generation in Taiwan as of mid-2024,” the firm said.
Also, it would help in Taiwan’s energy transition, which aims to shift from coal and nuclear power to “environmentally friendly gas-fired power plants and renewable energies,” Siemens Energy said.
Siemens Energy’s scope of supply includes the plant’s power island, consisting of two SGT6-9000HL gas turbines, one SST-5000 steam turbine, and three SGen6-2000P generators. The firm will also supply two heat recovery steam generators, and the SPPA-T3000 control system.
In addition, the contract includes long-term service over 25 years for both gas turbines, the generators, the steam turbine, and the heat recovery steam generators. It also includes an option for digital service solutions.
CTCI is responsible for the construction and installation, and the whole EPC work of the balance of the plant, according to Siemens Energy.
