The original Seocheon power station consisted of two 200 MW units constructed in 1983.[1] It was planned for retirement in 2018, when it was expected to be replaced by a new coal unit.[2]

In May 2017, President Moon Jae-in said the two units would be shut down by October or November 2017.[3] They were retired on July 1, 2017.[4]
