60 SIPOS HiMod actuators are installed at the Hsinta power plant.

60 SIPOS HiMod actuators are installed at the Hsinta power plant.

SIPOS Aktorik’s specialist variable speed actuators are supporting modernisation of the Hsinta power plant in Taiwan. Originally built in 1994, Taipower’s natural gas-fired combined-cycle scheme is undergoing an upgrade and an initial 60 SIPOS HiMod actuators are being installed to replace early actuation technology.

Representing Taipower’s largest gas-fired investment to date, the 2,420MW combined-cycle installation was designed for peak and intermediate load generation. The newly installed electric actuators play a key role for valve control, ensuring continuous duty while responding to a variety of operating and load conditions.

SIPOS’ high-end, modulating duty version HiMod actuators were selected to support the plant’s modernisation programme, which included conversion to a Siemens DCS. The specialist variable speed functionality of SIPOS’ actuators enhances the efficiency and flexibility of flow control processes at the site.

As a former division of Siemens, SIPOS has long-standing actuation expertise dating back over 100 years and is ideally placed to support Siemens technology.
