A 2x1000 MW ultra-super-critical achievement in South Korea

Magaldi Power S.p.A. has been recently awarded of a contract for supplying the dry bottom ash systems to remove the ash produced by the two new coal-fired groups of Dangjin. Magaldi MAC systems will allow these two new mega-groups, each one rated 1000 MW, to be able to operate eliminating completely the consumption of water necessary to extract and cool the ash produced in the boiler. The two new groups 9 and 10 of Dangjin, located about 70 km southwest of Seoul, will be state of the art facilities featuring ultra- super –critical boilers, enabling plant efficiencies never achieved before with conventional coal plants. This project represents an outstanding achievement for South Korea, for both the installed capacity but also for technological solutions, which place it among the first plants in the world.
