ALSTOM has signed a contract with Taiwan Power Company (TPC), valued at around 22 million euros, to upgrade three GT11N gas turbines to 11NMs at the Tung Hsiao power plant in Taiwan.
Benefits of the upgrade include increased power output, savings in fuel costs from significant efficiency improvements and extended hot gas path lifetime.
The scope of work includes completely replacing each turbine’s blading, vane carrier and exhaust gas housing. Upgrading is scheduled for March 2004 and will be completed during a regular major inspection to keep downtime to a minimum.
The current contract builds on the long-standing and close relationship ALSTOM has with TPC. Recently ALSTOM converted nine GT units to dual fuel use at Tung Hsiao, including the installation of new combustion with EV burner technology.
The Tung Hsiao plant is located on the west coast of Taiwan approximately two hours south of Taipei. Eleven ALSTOM gas turbines (11D, N, N2) and 4 steam turbines power four of the plant’s six combined cycle blocks.
