The company completed construction of the 24MW second wind power generation farm at Yeongheung Thermal Power Site.
Doosan Heavy Industries & Construction installed its eight 3MW turbines…it will generate 32 million kW of power annually.
Korea South East Power (KOSEP, CEO: Jang Do-soo) is generating eco-friendly electric power using 17 Korea-made wind power turbines (46MW) at its Yeongheung Thermal Power Site.
KOSEP held on September 9 the dedication ceremony of the Second Yeongheung Wind Power Generation Farm with capacity of 24MW in Ongjin-gun, Incheon City. The ceremony was attended by top managements of partners, including Doosan Heavy Industries & Construction, Hankuk Construction, Dong-A Construction, and Seonjin ENG.
The second wind power generation farm, which was built at the site of Yeongheung Thermal Power Generators No. 5 and 6, is consisted of eight 3MW wind power turbines produced by Doosan Heavy Industries & Construction. KOSEP invested 43.9 billion won in constructing the wind power generation farm.
The second wind power generation farm in Yeongheung can generate 32 million kWh annually that can be used by some 14,000 households for one year. It is expected to reduce 25,000 tons of CO₂ a year, complying with the low carbon and green growth policy.
With construction of the second farm, the Yeongheung Wind Power Generation Farm boasts the largest Korea-made wind power turbine-based farm in Korea with capacity of 46MW, including the 22MW first farm (9 turbines) built in 2011.
Particularly, this wind power generation farm is anticipated to widely publicize Korea’s excellent wind power facility technology as its general view can be looked down from local and international passenger planes that fly to and from the Incheon International Airport.
Now that it constructed the second wind power generation farm, KOSEP can move closer to achieving the goal of its renewable energy facilities (15GW by 2020) for fulfilling the renewable portfolio standard (RPS).
KOSEP plans to contribute to enhancing levels of power generation technologies and realizing the government’s creative economy by turning Yeongheung Thermal Power Site into an ‘eco-friendly energy complex’ that comprises thermal power, wind power, solar photovoltaic power and offshore small hydro power generation facilities.
