Taipower to build power plant

Taiwan’s Council for Economic Planning and Development has agreed a plan by state-owned Taiwan Power Co. (Taipower) to invest USD 1.42 billion in building an 800MW power plant in Changhua, central Taiwan. Two coal-fired generators will be installed at the plant, each one capable of generating 800 MW. The budget for the plant will be appropriated from next year and the two generators will start operating in January and July 2011, respectively. The new Changhua power plant is necessary to handle peak power demand which is rising by 1400MW every year, Taipower said. Newly installed ninth and tenth generators at the Taichung thermal power plant cannot meet the demand, hence the plan for the new power plant in Changhua. Taipower also plans to build a coal-fired generating plant at Taipei Harbour, generating 6000MW in the mid-term. Initially, two generators will be installed, at a cost of about NTD 60 billion.
