  • The 50 megawatt (MW) class secondary hydrogen fuel cell power plant, the largest in the world, is situated at Seosan, South Chungcheong Province
  • Korea East-West Development said that it started work on the Daesan secondary hydrogen fuel cell development

Daesan Hydrogen Fuel Cell Power Plant is operated by Daesan Green Energy, a joint venture between Korea East-West Power, Hanwha Energy and Doosan. A total of 440 kilowatt-hours (kW) phosphoric acid fuel cells (PAFC) in the Seosan Hanwha total site in Chungnam, South Korea, will contain a total of 50.16 MW power plants.

The government announced a roadmap to revitalize the hydrogen economy this January, and is pushing for the expansion of vehicles and power generation infrastructure using hydrogen fuel.

According to the plan, Korea East-West Power Co., a developing public corporation, plans to expand a 1-gigahertz (GW) hydrogen fuel cell power plant by injecting a total of 5.8 trillion won by 2030.

“This is a pioneer in the domestic hydrogen industry by utilizing the by-product hydrogen in the petrochemical process instead of the existing liquefied natural gas (LNG) and thus increasing the supply of domestic fuel cell equipment,” said a Dongbu Group official.
