Fuel cell CHP plant to supply Seoul District Heating

Date: 23 March 2017

A 20 MW fuel cell combined heat and power (CHP) plant has been inaugurated in Seoul, South Korea.

The Noeul Green Energy Co plant was constructed by South Korea’s Posco Energy and features technology from US-based FuelCell Energy.

The plant is owned by South Korea’s largest utility, Korea Hydro & Nuclear Power (KHNP). It supplies power to Korea Power Exchange (KPX) and heat to a district heating network operated by Korea District Heating Co, the nation’s largest heat supplier.

FuelCell Energy said the park was constructed in 10 months.

Chip Bottone, the firm’s president and CEO, said the project ‘occupies less than two acres of land and benefits Seoul by generating enough power for approximately 43,000 Korean households and heat for approximately 9000 households.’
