- 2020/02Taiwan: CTCI Acquires Ho-Ping Power Plant No.2 AQCS Retrofit EPC Project, Improving Air Quality with Green Engineering TechnologiesCTCI, Taiwan's largest EPC contractor, has long been committed to utilizing green engineering technologies in EPC project executions at Taiwan and abroad, striving for continual improvement in our environment. Its efforts have recently been recognized with the contract award of Ho-Ping Power Plant No.2 AQCS (Air Quality Control Systems) Retrofit EPC Project. The scope of the project includes new Wet Electrostatic Precipitator (WESP), new Non-Leakage Gas Gas Heater (NLGGH), system upgrade of Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR), Flue Gas Desulfurization (FGD), and Induced Draft Fan (ID Fan) which will help upgrade air quality improvement efficiency for the existing plant.
Ho-Ping Power Plant is owned by Ho-Ping Power Company, a subsidiary of Taiwan Cement Corporation (TCC). It is located in Hualien as the largest power plant in eastern Taiwan with an installed capacity of up to 1,320MW. TCC has been actively involved in the R&D of environmentally friendly technologies to minimize impacts of global climate change for years. As a believer and executor of the circular economy, it has been also applying new technologies to enhance operational performance of its existing plants, optimizing resource use efficiency. The Ho-Ping Power Plant AQCS Retrofit Project is a good example of the action. CTCI provided engineering and construction services of Ho-Ping Power Plant back in 1999. And this time, CTCI has been selected again as the contractor of the aforesaid AQCS Retrofit EPC Project, beating strong competitors in the bid evaluation process for having superior air pollution control technologies and much more track records in power plants. Engineering of the project starts from January 2020. To ensure normal operation of the power plant, the retrofit work will be conducted during the annual overhaul of the Unit No.2.
CTCI has a strong track record in power plant projects, completing a number of target projects in Taiwan, China, Thailand, the Philippines, and the US. It has now extended services to environmental engineering, including water, waste water, Energy-from-Waste and air quality control, dedicated to lowering environmental impact arising from industrial development. With the brand spirit of being the “Most Reliable Engineering Services Provider”, CTCI envisions to utilize green engineering principles across our work to strike a balance between economic growth and sustainable environment.
