    Largest Coal-fired Power Station in the World - Fire Detection for the Coal Conveyer Belt System at Taichung Power Plant, Taiwan
    Largest Coal-fired Power Station in the World

    Fire Detection for the Coal Conveyer Belt System at Taichung Power Plant, Taiwan

    28.11.2012

    The Taichung Power Plant is a coal-fired power plant based in Taiwan. With an installed capacity of 5,780 MW, it is the largest coal-fired power station in the world. The power plant consists of ten coal-fired units with nominal capacity of 550 MW each. There is an expansion plan to build two new 800 MW units by 2016.

    Because of safety concerns and several fire accidents, the management of Taichung Power Plant finally decided to equip its system of conveyor belts with a fire detection system to monitor the temperature along the belts and in case of fire send alarms in order to minimise the damages.

    LIOS has supplied its DE.TECT system for Taichung Power Plant which covers the whole conveyor system. There are altogether four conveyor belts monitored, two from the harbour to the transfer tower and two from the transfer tower to the generation units.

    The customer especially appreciates the highly endurable design of the DE.TECT evaluation unit which is ideal for deployments in harsh environments. It comes with a completely encapsulated housing and doesn’t contain any moving parts or fans at all.
