GE in Taiwan
In Taiwan and around the world, GE is building a world that works — finding solutions to tough problems, investing in people and programs that help improve infrastructure and lives, as well as making a difference in the communities we serve.
Since 1961, GE has played a critical role in supporting Taiwan’s development. Today, GE's footprint in Taiwan includes 3 offices, and an employee force of over 200 across our Aviation and Energy businesses. With our global experience across diverse industries, GE is well-positioned to support Taiwan’s 5+2 Industrial Innovation Plan, which focuses on seven key industries and projects that will promote innovation, create high-income job opportunities, and support balanced development across the country’s high-value business sectors.
Future of Flight
GE Aerospace is a world-leading provider of commercial, military and business and general aviation jet and turboprop engines, aircraft components as well as avionics, electrical power, and mechanical systems, with a global service network to support these offerings.
In Taiwan, GE Aerospace has worked closely with Evergreen Aviation Technologies Corp. (EGAT) to launch a new joint-venture company, specializing in the overhaul of the GEnx, GE Aerospace’s fastest-selling engine. The new company, GE Evergreen Engine Services (GEEVES), builds on more than 15 years of close cooperation between GE Aerospace and EGAT. GEEVES aims to create a next-generation service network for the GEnx engine and strengthen service and support for both GE and EGAT customers.
Today, GEEVES is a full engine overhaul provider for the CF6-80C/-80E, as well as GEnx-1B/2B engines, and serves a global customer base with customized solutions. As of 2022, GEEVES employs over 600 employees across its two sites, with more than 100 operating at its new component repair facility in Taiwan’s Guanyin Industrial Park, which has an increased capacity to grow overhaul and repair operations to cater to third-party component repair business needs.
As a major player across the global energy landscape, supplying one-third of the world’s electricity and boasting the broadest portfolio across the renewable energy industry, GE Renewable Energy and Power is well-positioned to help drive Taiwan’s transition to a cleaner, greener energy future.
GE boasts a strong installed base locally, with over 30 gas turbines providing almost 6,000 MW of installed capacity. We play a key role in helping Taiwan achieve its renewable energy goals and work closely with local partners like Taiwan Power Company (TPC) and Aerospace Industrial Development Corporation (AIDC)¸to boost grid stability, and ensure a reliable, affordable and sustainable access to energy in Taiwan.
GE’s relationship with TPC dates to 2016, when the leading electricity provider awarded GE its first major project in Taiwan for the DaTan 7 Plant in Taoyuan. In 2019, TPC selected GE Gas Power’s highly efficient and record-setting HA gas turbines for its new DaTan 8 & 9 combined-cycle power plant — an integral plant in Taiwan’s energy development plan. In 2022, TPC ordered six of GE’s advanced LM2500XPRESS power packages for its Tung Hsiao Power Plant Renewable Project, which will be the first power plant using GE’s aeroderivative gas turbine technology to help manage power shortages, stabilize the grid, and support Taiwan’s renewables development.
In October 2022, GE signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with TPC to develop strategies to achieve net-zero goals by 2050, including exploring hydrogen solutions supported by GE gas turbines. In the same month, GE and AIDC signed another MoU to help AIDC use hydrogen-based technologies in power generation to reduce greenhouse emissions and develop its own maintenance capabilities on a turbine-supported electrification project.
GE also helps power Taiwan’s Chia Hui Power Corporation’s Combined Heat and Power plant (CHP) in the Chiayi County, which adds approximately 535 MW to Taiwan’s grid — the equivalent electricity needed to power approximately 600,000 Taiwanese homes, serving as a significant achievement in supporting Taiwan’s Renewable Energy Development Act (REDA) energy policy.
A Partner to Taiwan’s Growth and Development
In 2022, GE was awarded the “International Trade Outstanding Export/Import Business Certificate”, a recognition for being one of the top 500 companies in export/import performance in the year of 2021. In 2018, GE was chosen as a winner in the “Outstanding Foreign Firms” category at Taiwan’s 72nd Golden Merchant Awards — the oldest and most renowned enterprise selection awards in Taiwan. The award recognizes GE’s long-standing commitment, investment and partnership, especially in the area of helping Taiwan achieve its energy transition goals.
