Mitsubishi turbine for Taiwan cogen plant

By Mike Brezonick06 October 2022

Mitsubishi Power, a power solutions brand of Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Ltd. (MHI), has received an order for an H-25 gas turbine for the Taiwanese firm Chang Chun Plastics Co., Ltd. The 30 MW turbine will be the core of a new high-efficiency, natural gas-fired cogeneration facility at the company’s Dafa Factory in Kaohsiung.

Operation is scheduled to begin around winter 2023, with the unit supplying power for the company’s factories, and steam for manufacturing processes. This is the first H-25 gas turbine that Mitsubishi Power has supplied in Taiwan.

The gas turbine will replace the existing oil and coal-fired boiler facility, part of a project conducted in response to a request from the Kaohsiung authorities to reduce coal consumption based on the global trend toward reducing CO2 emissions, and a shift in Taiwan’s energy policy.

Mitsubishi Power will supply the H-25 gas turbine and auxiliary machinery, and dispatch engineers to provide support for installation and trial operations.

Mitsubishi Power said it has supplied Chang Chun Group with major equipment for the power and cogeneration facilities at its factories since 1984, including nine steam turbines and five boilers. Chang Chun Group plans to introduce additional gas turbines in the future and has concluded a forward-looking Frame Agreement with Mitsubishi Power for delivery of a total of four H-25 gas turbines, including the one for this project.

Since its initial H-25 order in 1987, Mitsubishi Power sold more than 190 units in Japan and overseas.
