Background on Plant

The Yeosu Thermal Power Plant consists of a 350 MW coal-fired unit, which replaced a 200-MW heavy oil-fired unit in February 2016, and a 329-MW coal-fired fluidized bed (CFB) unit. The No. 1 heavy-oil fired unit is going to be replaced with another coal-fired CFB boiler and a steam turbine that will generate 350 MW. The renewed No. 1 unit was scheduled to start operation in November 2015, but construction ended in February 2016.[1][2][3]
