Our Power Plants

As Taiwan closes its nuclear power plants and pushes for the development of renewable energy, we are helping to provide the solution by building and operating new zero-emissions power plants based on geothermal heat power.

Today, we are primarily focused on developing new, “greenfield” plants using previously untapped geothermal resources.

Vimmerby

We broke ground for our first power plant project in summer, 2020. Located in Hualien, about 200 kilometers from Taipei. When completed, the Westlake geothermal power plant will deliver 2 MW of power into the local grid, which may supply more than 2,000 households electricity in a year. The project is still in the drilling phase, but we are making great progress and still on course to commission the plant in 2022.

SHIKA (WAITA)

Our first project binary heat power plant, Waita is capable of producing 1MW by utilizing the heat from the so-called “bottoming cycle” of an existing geothermal power plant. By tapping into this residual heat, which would otherwise go unused, this new addition helps to increase the efficiency of the larger power plant. The project was put into operation in the first half of 2020, but the area was hit shortly afterwards by extensive rainfall and floods which led to a prolonged outage. Since the restart, the power plant has continued to show good results and stable electricity production. The site has also received a lot of attention and had many visitors who are interested in increasing efficiency at other power plants.

SANSUI

Sansui is a geothermal plant located close to the existing Waita power plant. It will use an existing well to produce electricity that will be sold to the grid. In early 2021, extensive preparations were made for the development of this project. Among other things, several permit applications were made and an extensive flow test of the existing well was carried out. We anticipate that this Sansui will be commissioned later in 2021.

IWANA (OKUE)

We currently have land-lease and network capacity agreements in place for our third project, Okue. It is anticipated that the future plant will generate up to 1.9 MW. Drilling was supposed to begin in Q4 2020, but has been postponed pending an evaluation of the exact drilling location.

Global Footprint

Baseload Power Taiwan is benefits from the knowledge and experience gleaned from other Baseload Power companies throughout the world. Here are their projects.

HOW MUCH ELECTRICITY IS THAT?

A single 1MW power plant can produce enough electricity to power between 600 and 800 homes.
