The Ministry of Economic Affairs (MOEA) has published "stop the construction of the Shenao Power Plant".  The MOEA said if the third LNG terminal in Kwun Tong finish construction and start to operate, it will supply LNG for 4,280MW power generator.  Besides 3,000MW LNG plant in DaTan, the third LNG terminal can supply LNG for 1,280MW power generator to replace Shenao's 1,200MW power generator. Therefore, the MOEA has decided to stop the construction of Shenao Power Plant.

The Shenao power plant is an important renewal plan to stabilize supply and balance the regional power supply.  The Shenao plant is planned to generate in 2025 and 2026, and it can stable power supply and contribute 2.8% for reserve margin rate to achieve 15%, and facilitate a balanced regional power supply. The public issues must be considered for technology, environment, risk allocation etc. Therefore, the MOEA has reassessed the construction of Shenao Power Plant after passing an EIA at the third LNG terminal.  

Long-term power development is systematic and planned, and the new power generators should be diversified.  The natural gas unit requires a relatively low area for construction and faster construction period. Also, the proportion of renewable generation will gradually increase in the future, and gas-fired generator has flexible dispatching which is the better option. Consider of the third LNG terminal will stable supply the fuel, and it will necessary to set-up the gas-fired generator.  The government has to make sure the power supply, and plan  the land use for the Taipower and IPP, assess the schedule of natural gas pipelines, and the grid transmission capacity in the future.
