Westinghouse, Black & Veatch working at Inchon

Westinghouse Electric Corp. has received an order from Hanwha Energy Company Ltd., Seoul, South Korea, to supply power generation equipment for the Inchon power plant phase II in Inchon, South Korea.

The plant will use three 100-MW Westinghouse 501D5 EconoPac combustion turbines, fueled by a treated low-sulfur wax-residual heavy oil. Power from the plant will be sold to Korea Electric Power Corp. for use on its grid. The Westinghouse project is scheduled to begin commercial operation in June 1996.

Black & Veatch International (B&V) has been awarded a contract by Hanwha for South Korea`s first major repowering project. The work will boost the efficiency of the original 460-MW power plant at Inchon.

With commercial operation scheduled for January 1997, the repowering project will use B&V`s engineering services to install three heat-recovery steam generators (HRSG) on the exhaust of three existing Westinghouse combustion turbines. The HRSGs with supplementary burners will supply steam to repower an existing 160-MW steam turbine. B&V will subcontract detailed design to Samsung Engineering and Construction Company Ltd., in Seoul.
