Introduction to the Plant
Plant #1 with a 10,000 kW capacity, was constructed from period March 5, 1981-November 29, 1982 so as to supply power stably to Jeju Island following the removal of the Jeju Thermal Power Plant #2 (5,000 kw, constructed on Jeju harbor in 1968, removed in 1997). Its outstanding performance includes fault-free operation of the steam turbine plant #1 (8 times), 408 days of fault-free continuous operation (the first in Korea), and an excellent workplace in the internal management evaluation (7 times), a accident-free certification (10-times) by the Ministry of Labor.

Construction of a gas turbine power generation facility for peak load was started on July 1, 1983; gas turbine plant #1,2 and 3 in 1984; gas turbine #4 in 1985; and #5-8 in 1986. Even though they were constructed for peak load, they have been used for middle- and base-load as well, and the operation time of each plan is 80,000 hours up to December 31, 1998, greatly contributing to the stability of the power system in Jeju. A gas turbine generator which was moved from Bupyeong steam turbine facility on June 21, 1994 is also running here as a peak-load generator.
Construction of the new Jeju thermal plant #2-3 (capacity 150,000 kW (75,000 kW x 2) was started in January 1997 and completed in March 3, 2000 (Plant #2) and December 31, 2000 (Plant #3) to cope with the drastically increasing demand for electricity in Jeju area. As a result, Jeju Thermal Power Plant consists of multiple facility types steam turbine, gas turbine, and internal combustion - and the capacity of Jeju Plant (255.000 kW) accounts for about 60% of the total power generation capacity of Jeju area.

Jeju Thermal P/P is trying to acquire certification for an environment-friendly company by minimizing discharge of pollutants and improving wastewater processing facilities. Staff and officers are working in a harmonious way to make this Jeju plant a workplace free from labor-management conflict through various activities such as operation of labor-management harmony plaza, staff & officers and environment clean-up events, and the supply of tents and camping facilities for employees' family events.
