The committee tasked with the project reports that it received several – quite a few – excellent proposals which applied ideas of environmental protection to power plant construction.

Many designs would have require complex and cutting-edge techniques, said Marcos Cruz, professor at University of London, who also convened the judging committee for the international competition for Taipower’s Hsinta Ecological Power Plant.

Cruz said the five shortlisted works had come up with innovative ideas for the power plant while at the same time struck a balance with practicality. We looked forward to seeing architects go deeper and be more meticulous with their designs for the final round of the competition, added Cruz

The submission of proposals opened three months ago after Taipower announced plans to renovate its Hsinta Power Plant Area No. 2 while also incorporating a new site, a salt field wetland, and a historic housing complex adjacent to the existing area. The first prize will be announced on April 27 with a reward of NT$4 million.
