Coal-Fired Power

Overview

A coal-fired power plant generates power by driving a steam turbine with the steam generated by the combustion of coal in a boiler. It consists of a coal unloading/conveyance system, boiler, steam turbine, waste gas handling system (e.g., a desulfurization system), and an ash handling system.

In 2007, POSCO E&C was awarded the EPC projects for coal-fired power plants in Latin America , thereby becoming the first Korean EPC contractor for coal-fired power plant in the area. Following the successful completion of the Nueva Ventanas project in Chile in 2009, POSCO E&C successfully completed the Campiche project and the Angamos project in the country.
