Taiwan Power Co. (Taipower) has signed an agreement to purchase two natural gas turbines worth NT$37.5 billion (about US$1.2 billion) with American company General Electric Co. (GE).

Taipower Chairman Yang Wei-fuu and GE Gas Power Chairman John Rice signed the agreement during a ceremony in Washington on Tuesday witnessed by U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham and other political figures.

Under the agreement, Taipower will purchase two of GE's highly efficient H-class turbines worth NT$37.5 billion for the No. 8 and No. 9 generator units of the gas-fired Tatan Power Plant in Taoyuan.
