Published on: 

Taiwan Power Company (TPC), the national utility of Taiwan, has awarded the DaTan 8&9 power project to the GE-Marubeni consortium. Located in Taoyuan City, the plant will be powered by four of GE’s highly efficient, record-setting HA turbines, and is expected to generate over 2,000-megawatts. DaTan 8&9 will be GE’s third HA gas turbine project in Taiwan and is an integral part of the country’s energy development plan. The Award will become an order for GE following contract closure and payment which is expected in April.

GE’s HA fleet of gas turbines has surpassed more than 250,000 operating hours and has secured more than 85 orders from 35+ customers across more than 16 countries. Most recently, GE announced that its HA gas turbine was selected by the Sharjah Electricity and Water Authority (SEWA) for its first independent combined cycle power plant in the emirate of Sharjah, United Arab Emirates.
