itsubishi Power has signed a contract to provide an H-25 gas turbine for the Taiwanese firm Chang Chun Petrochemical Co., Ltd. The turbine with 30 MW output capacity will be the core of a new high-efficiency, natural gas-fired cogeneration facility at the company’s Miaoli Factory in Miaoli City in the north central region of Taiwan. Operation is scheduled to begin around spring 2025, with the unit supplying power for the company’s factories, and steam for manufacturing processes. This is the second H-25 gas turbine that Mitsubishi Power will supply to Chang Chun Group, following a unit for a Chang Chun Plastics factory announced in 2022.
The gas turbine will replace the existing oil and coal-fired boiler facility, part of a project conducted in response to a request from administrative 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 bring its engineers to provide support for installation and trial operations.
