Kawasaki Heavy Industries has received an for one 28 MW steam turbine generator from Ta-Ho Lu-Tsao Environment, a company founded by Taiwanese waste disposal company Onyx Ta-Ho Environmental Services Co. Ta-Ho Lu-Tsao has operated the Chiayi County Lutsao Refuse Incineration Plant in Taiwan over the 20-year contracted period since the facility’s initial commencement of operations. With an eye to continuing operations over the next two decades, they have decided to carry out major upgrade and renewal work on the facility. The newly ordered steam turbine generator will play a central role in these facility improvements, aimed at achieving energy savings and reducing CO2 emissions through more effective utilization of heat generated by incineration operations. Kawasaki will ship the steam turbine generator to Taiwan in July 2023, and the start of generator operations is scheduled for December of the same year. Power generated by the system will be used within the facility, with surplus power sold to outside customers.
