Located in South Korea, the Shin Seochon project is an Ultra-Super Critical unit of 1,040 MW coal-fired power plant, to be commissioned in 2019 by the Korean utility KEPCO.
The project involves all major actors of North-east Asia, the turbine island being supplied by Doosan and the Boiler by an EPC (Engineering, Procurement and Construction ) consortium including both the Korean Daelim and the Japanese MHPS. The boiler will then follow MHPS Design and be manufactured partly in Korea by Hansol Seentec and partly in Japan at MHPS Kure.
"We could successfully support all our customers, providing a global technical coordination during a specific seminar involving the 4 main actors engineers for the boiler (Daelim ; MHPS ; Hansol Seentec ; Vallourec). This seminar resulted on Vallourec material full acceptance by the contractors and Vallourec could be awarded over 4,200 tons of tubes and pipes, ordered separately by Hansol Seentec and MHPS Kure. The ST&P project management teams are now coordinating the on-time supply for over 120 items from 6 different mills in France and Germany. We were also awarded by DHIC the Turbine piping system." stated Benoit Chambert-Loir,Steam Tube & Pipe Regional Sales Manager, Korea & Japan.
