CTCI will build a 6.3 Mt/year LNG import terminal in Taichung (Taiwan)

15 Sep 2020

The Taiwanese company CTCI has won an engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning (EPCC° contract worth TWD19bn (nearly US$650m) to build a 6.3 Mt/year LNG import terminal at Taipower’s Taichung power plant. Commissioning is expected in 2023. The LNG terminal will be the first one not owned by the state-owned CPC Corporation. It will supply gas to the first two units of the Taichung power plant and to units 4, 5, 6 of the Tunghsiao power plant.

Earlier in September 2020, Taipower awarded a multi-billion dollar contract to a consortium of GE and CTCI Corporation, to supply 5 CCGT units at the Hsinta power plant (three new units totalling 3,900 MW) and at the Taichung power plant (two new units totalling 2,600 MW). Commissioning will start in phases as of 2024 and the new CCGT units will gradually replace coal-fired power units, in line with Taiwan government’s strategy to increase the share of gas-fired power generation to 50% by 2025.
