GE to drive 300 MW South Korea IGCC plant

Korea Western Power Co. have selected GE technology for a integrated gasification combined-cycle (IGCC) power plant to be built in South Korea, one of the first in Asia.

The 300-MW coal-fired facility will help the South Korean government meet its low carbon emissions targets, while bolstering the country's electricity supply.

GE will supply a 7F Syngas Turbine, a D11 steam turbine, a heat recovery steam generator and a cyber security-featured Mark VIe integrated control system that will run the power island control system for the new plant.

The facility is located 20 kilometers northwest of the city of Taean-Eub and about 100 kilometers south of Seoul.

The Taean IGCC project is the first commercial gasification combined-cycle plant to be developed under South Korea's Renewable Energy Portfolio Standard. The government has provided research and development funding for the gasification process.
