Customer stories

Helping Jeju Island stay powered

The Korea Midland Power Company (KOMIPO) was seeking a small block, high efficiency power solution to burn imported LNG on Korea’s Jeju Island, a top tourist destination. The region’s small power grid cannot accommodate large H-class or F-class technology, even when burning LNG. Featuring two 6F.03 gas turbines, minimal greenhouse gas emissions and a low LCOE, the Jeju LNG combined-cycle power plant is expected to serve KOMIPO’s long-term operational needs, supplying about 20% of the total power demand to the Jeju region.
