Dongbu Hasla power station
|This article is part of the CoalSwarm coverage of South Korea and coal|
Dongbu Hasla power station (동부하슬라), also known as Dongbu Green power station, was a 2,000 megawatt (MW) coal plant proposed in Gangwon-do, South Korea.
The map below shows the approximate location for the proposed plant in the city of Gangneung.
Background on Plant
The plant was announced in 2012, and was originally proposed to comprise two 600 MW units for a combined capacity of 1200 MW, but as of January 2014 Dongbu Corporation listed the plant as 1,000 MW.
During implementation, the plant was apparently suffering from both transmission line construction problems and environmental concerns.
In 2015, reports on the 7th Basic Power Plan stated that the project, described as a 2 x 1000 MW plant, was cancelled. It had been planned for completion in 2019-2020.
