Tun Hsiao Plant 180 MW Addition

Published on: 

Taiwanese Power Company is using GE-supplied TM2500XPRESS gas turbine sets for the upgrade.

GE supplied the LM2500XPRESS gas turbine generator sets with a total installed capacity of 180 MW for the Tung Hsiao Power Plant Renewal Project in Taiwan. It supports Taiwan’s Renewable Energy Development Act (REDA) energy policy that seeks to increase the gas-fired power ratio to 50% by 2025. The new plant will help accelerate coal-to-gas transition, manage energy shortages, stabilize the grid, and support renewables growth in Taiwan.


The plant successfully started grid-connected trial runs earlier this year using six GE LM2500XPRESS aeroderivative gas turbines. The recently installed modular units can deliver up to 180 MW of electricity. Gas power generation continues to play an important role in facilitating the growth of more reliable, affordable, and sustainable energy for the island.
