Siemens Energy, together with its consortium partner CTCI Corporation, is set to build the Sun Ba Power Phase II combined cycle power plant in Tainan, Taiwan.

With an installed capacity of 1,100MW, Sun Ba II will be equipped with two gas turbines and one steam turbine.

The project is owned and operated by the Sun Ba Power Corporation, an independent power producer based in Taiwan.

Siemens Energy will deliver the plant’s power island, which includes two SGT6-9000HL gas turbines, one SST-5000 steam turbine, three SGen6-2000P generators, two heat recovery steam generators and an SPPA-T3000 control system.

The power plant will be powered with re-gasified liquefied natural gas.

Siemens Energy Generation executive vice-president Karim Amin said: “We are very excited to contribute to the energy transition of Taiwan with our leading HL-class gas turbine technology.

“This technology offers substantial value for Sun Ba Power Corporation’s project, as it combines high power density with world-class efficiencies.

“As a result, a large amount of electricity can be produced at the lowest possible cost while driving significant CO₂ reductions at the same time.”

The Sun Ba II plant is expected to help Taiwan’s energy transition plan, which focuses on shifting from coal and nuclear power to gas-fired power plants and renewable energies.

Siemens Energy will also provide long-term service for the plant’s core components.

Under a 25-year contract, the company will service both gas turbines, the generators, the steam turbine and the heat recovery steam generators.

The contract scope also includes the option for digital service solutions.

CTCI is an engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) company based in Taiwan.

It will be responsible for the construction, installation and whole EPC work of the balance of the plant.

Last month, Siemens Energy reported an 8.8% increase in revenue to €7.3bn ($8.6bn) for the third quarter of the year compared to the same period of last year.
