The Hsinta Power Plant or Hsing-ta Power Plant (Chinese: 興達發電廠; pinyin: Xìngdá Fādiànchǎng) is a coal-fired power plant in Yong'an District and Qieding District in Kaohsiung, Taiwan. With a total installed capacity of 4,326 MW, the plant is Taiwan's second largest coal-fired power plant after the 5,500 MW Taichung Power Plant (coal-generated power only).
The coal yards of the power plant was designed as an indoor type to mitigate local environment impacts. It consists of four coal domes with 170,000 tonnes of storage capacity each, which enables the continuous supply for all of the generation units for 50 days of operation.
The coal handling system of the power plant consists of stacker, reclaimer and two conveyor belts. The capacity of the stacker is 4,000 tonnes/hour and reclaimer is 2,000 tonnes/hour. The first conveyor belt has a total length of 4.8 km with a capacity of 4,000 tonnes/hour, handling between the coal domes and barge, and the second conveyor belt has a total length of 5.2 km with a capacity of 2,000 tonnes/hour, handling between the coal dome and wharf.
