Background on Plant

The initial Seagull cogen plant was a three-unit coal-fired power station totaling 146 MW, commissioned from 2007 to 2014. The Seagull steam power plant is operated by Gunjang Energy of eTEC E&C, to supply electricity and heat to the surrounding Gunjang industrial zone.[1]

A 250 MW expansion was proposed. In 2014 a coal-burning circulating fluidised bed steam generator with a selective catalytic reduction system was ordered from the company Foster Wheeler. As of 2014 the plant was under construction and scheduled to come online in mid-2016.[1]

The contract was awarded to Hamon Korea in June 2014 and commercial operation started on 18 May 2016. It was reported to be 275 MW.[2]
