The Tatan Power Plant, Dah-Tarn Power Plant[3] or Ta-Tan Power Plant[4] (Chinese: 大潭發電廠; pinyin: Dàtán Fādiànchǎng) is a gas-fired power plant in Guanyin District, Taoyuan City, Taiwan. At the capacity of 4,384 MW, the plant is the world's largest gas turbine combined cycle power plant[3] and Taiwan's largest gas-fired power plant.



On 16 December 2005, the power plant combined cycle Unit 1 and 2 with a capacity of 435.9 MW each went into commercial operation.[5]


On 31 December 2009, the power plant combined cycle Unit 4 and 5 were converted from low pressure to high pressure and started commercial operation on the day. This conversion increased the plant capacity by 507.4 MW.[1]


In 2012, the power plant carried out the Guidance Plan for Energy Industry Adaptive Action in Response to Climate Change to conduct an analysis on the impact of climate change, a vulnerability check and risk evaluation for the facilities within their domain.[6]
