In the facility's first phase, it will generate up to 2,000 MW using the plant's four 500 MW Circulating Fluidised Bed (CFB) boilers. The CFB boilers will feed two 1,000 MW turbines and will fire sub-bituminous coal of 4,000 Kcal per ton imported from Indonesia, with the potential to burn 20% biomass (representing 400 MW). The plant is an interesting paradox; although it will burn high- water, low-ash coal typically known for its low energy content, the facility has at the heart of its design the reduction of the environmental impact of producing energy. This is achieved in a number of ways. Firstly, the CFB boilers have improved efficiency due to superior heat transfer and more efficient combustion. Secondly, the facility's auxiliary power needs will be met from renewable sources, which include fuel cells, hydropower, solar panels and wind turbines. Samcheok's coastal location will also enable it to embrace wave-power generation. Any excess power generated will go into the grid. Choosing AVEVA software On a project of this size, a large number of EPCs are involved, generating a huge quantity of data that it is vital for KOSPO to manage effectively. The company required a centralised Information Management solution that could handle large volumes of data from any source, and could also provide the ability to clearly visualise this information. Throughout a power plant's life cycle, about 80% of its technical information comes from EPCs; seamless data management will enable KOSPO to use this information effectively to operate and maintain the plant to maximise its life span. POMIT (www.pomit.co.kr), a system developer and provider of plant IT solutions, is a trusted business partner of KOSPO and they were asked to suggest a solution. Already a successful customer of AVEVA, having used both AVEVA PDMS™ and AVEVA NET since 2009, POMIT recommended AVEVA NET Portal™ and subsequently played a key role in installing it.
