規劃取代核四 2018大潭電廠成全台最大電廠

0815全台大停電,肇因於大潭發電廠遭中油「斷氣」,6部機組同步跳機所致。一座發電場當機,影響如此重大?因為大家不知道的是,大潭電廠是被規劃為取代核四廠、2018年將躍升為全台發電量最大的電廠。

大潭發電廠位於桃園市觀音區大潭里,目前一年發電量約288億度電,發電量僅次於台中發電廠,居台灣第二位,是台灣北部地區最大單一電廠。滿載發電時能供應北台灣三分之一用電,新竹以北有8成的工業用電,包含台積電等國際科技大廠的供電也全靠它。

大潭電廠於2005年啟用;2006年6月20日第一號機開始商轉;2008年11月19日第六號機商轉;

2017年6月:因應可能發生的缺電,向美國通用電氣(GE)採購的緊急發電機組以空運運抵台灣,此緊急機組會安裝於大潭電廠,成為該電廠的七號機。

台電計畫110年大潭電廠擴廠,增加4部發電機組,屆時大潭電廠可以增加到300萬瓩的電,全廠10座機組可供應北台灣五分之三電力,成為滿載發電量最大的電廠,未來核一、二、三陸續退役,大潭可能成為主力電廠。

為紓緩今年夏天供電壓力,總經費新台幣95億元的大潭電廠7號機新增2部機座,原本預計7月點火試俥,因工程延宕,力拚8月完工,以提升106年至108年的備載容量。

預計107年起,大潭電廠陸續完成 4部機組的擴建後,總發電量將達740萬瓩,成為全台發電量最大的電廠。

然而0815跳電後,一旦大潭成為全台最大發電量電廠,其供電安全與穩定性,更令人關切。

Gas terminal could threaten coral: biologist

NEWLY PROTECTED SPECIES:The site of a planned industrial development off the Taoyuan coast has been discovered to harbor a coral species only found in Taiwan

By Lin Chia-nan  /  Staff reporter

CPC Corp, Taiwan’s plan to build a natural gas terminal in Datan Borough (大潭) Taoyuan’s Guanyin District (觀音) poses a threat to the existence of an indigenous and endangered coral found in the area, Academia Sinica biodiversity researcher Chaolun Allen Chen (陳昭倫) said yesterday.

CPC plans to build its third liquefied natural gas terminal on yet-to-be reclaimed land off Datan adjacent to Kuantang Industrial Park.

The Environmental Protection Administration (EPA) on June 5 held an ad hoc committee review for the company’s environmental difference analysis report.

The company said algae reefs in Datan are sparse compared with the adjacent Kuanhsin (觀新) conservation area.

The EPA’s review meeting ended with no consensus and several committee members left early.

A second committee review is scheduled for Monday and Taoyuan Local Union director-general Pan Chong-cheng (潘忠政), who has fought for algae reefs for years, invited biologists to explain their significance.

“CPC keeps saying it has no alternative for the site, but it has paid no attention to the nation’s environment,” Pan said yesterday, adding that the algae reefs in Datan should be cherished as much as the Great Barrier Reef in Australia.

Chen said that the endangered coral Polycyathus chaishanensis was recently discovered in Datan.

Chen first found the coral in Kaohsiung’s Chaishan (柴山) in 1990 and spent two decades settling its nomenclature.

In 2012, his findings about the coral were published in the journal Zoological Studies.

In March, Polycyathus chaishanensis was listed as a first-level endangered wild species by the Council of Agriculture (COA).

Chen said he found the coral also exists in Datan’s algae reefs after he analyzed samples from a field survey on June 8.

CPC’s development would affect the nation’s largest stretch of algae reefs in Datan and the wider vicinity, COA Endemic Species Research Institute associate researcher Liu Ching-yu (劉靜榆) said, adding that eight other coral species were found that might be new unnamed species.

“If CPC’s project is to go ahead, the nation’s only algae reef ecosystem would disappear,” she said.

The coast where the algae reefs grow should be listed as a conservation area, Wild at Heart Legal Defense Association lawyer Tsai Ya-ying (蔡雅瀅) said.

The association applied for such a designation in 2008, but the council and the Taoyuan City Government have not taken further action, she said, adding that it was to file another proposal yesterday.

Taiwan Power Corp already operates a power plant in Datan, which has sufficient supply of natural gas, she said.

“Is it really necessary to build another natural gas terminal there?” she asked.

In a telephone interview yesterday, CPC spokeswoman Bi Su-chien (畢淑蒨) said: “We respect all opinions [on the coral issue], but the natural gas project is part of the government’s plan to phase out nuclear power by 2025.”

The project — which is expected to start operations at an annual capacity of 500,000 tonnes of natural gas in 2022 — is still awaiting EPA approval, Bi said.

The facility is to replace the existing four electric generators at the Tatan Power Plant (大潭電廠), she added.
