Korea Electric Power Corporation
To meet the Korean demand for electricity, KEPCO and its subsidiaries reliably and efficiently operate 60,269MW facilities.
Through the experience of establishing and running those facilities, we have developed our own technologies as well as accumulated extensive knowledge which can be readily tailored for various customer needs worldwide.
We have made great efforts to achieve an optimization of generation resources since the oil crisis in 1974.
KEPCO's dependency on oil for generation, which reached around 90% in the 1970s, is now about 7%, whereas dependency on nuclear and coal energy has greatly increased. Meanwhile, in response to strengthened environmental regulations and a rapidly- growing demand for electricity, we have increased the portion of combined-cycle power plants which use lean energy fuel.
Most combined-cycle power plants were constructed near metropolitan areas in the 1990s and have been displaying outstanding performances.
In particular, the Seoinchon Combined-Cycle Power Plant (3,600MW installed capacity) was awarded the 1993 Power plant Award for its operational excellency in achieving the highest thermal efficiency(49.58%) and the lowest emission of NOx(below 50ppm).
