■ Technical Tour

Largest Thermal Power Plant in Taiwan

Technical Tour – Taichung Power Plant 
Wednesday 27th March 2024
11:00 – 16:00

Explore Taiwan's largest thermal power plant --- Taichung power plant, and stroll through its park design. 

Taichung Power Plant has invested significantly in environmental improvement projects to ensure air quality. Substantial progress has been made in reducing coal usage and emissions, addressing both source management and end-of-pipe treatment. 

Taichung Power Plant is actively improving the performance of electrostatic precipitators and installing wet electrostatic precipitators to further decrease particulate emissions. With the future addition of new gas turbine units, it is anticipated that the emission of air pollutants will be further reduced by up to 50%.

This technical tour will give participants an impression of the size and activity of the environmental improvement system, electrostatic precipitators both dry and wet, and how they operate. As we pass by a unit, our technical guide will offer participants equipment improvement information during and after the tour.

11:00- 12:00  Visit power plant unit
12:00- 13:30  Lunch
13:30- 16:00  Power plant environmental improvement presentation

Fees: Lunch and transportation are self-managed.
