Thermal power plant in Cebu, Philippines, View of AL Qatrana power plant in Jordan image
KEPCO’s overseas business started off with its performance restoration/operation project for Malaya power plant in the Philippines in 1995 and construction/operation project for Ilijan gas complex thermal power plant in 1997. Since then, KEPCO has successfully built power plants in Cebu and Illijan in the Philippines, which served as the platform to expand its business from the northern part to central part of the Philippines.
KEPCO has gradually expanded its business to China, UAE, Saudi Arabia and Mexico ever since launching thermal power generation business in Malaya, the Philippines. In China, KEPCO has been involved in coal generation business in Shanxi province via a strategic alliance with Shanxi International Energy Group (SIEG). KEPCO laid the foundation to grow into a total energy service provider covering power generation, coal mining and new/renewable energy business by opening a local subsidiary in China in 2007 and by acquiring existing businesses as well as building new ones for further business expansion.
In the Middle East, KEPCO won the bid to build and operate gas combined-cycle power plant in Al-Katrana, Jodan (373MW), heavy oil thermal power plant in Rabigh, Saudi Arabia (1,204MW), S3 gas combined-cycle power plant in Shuweihat, UAE (1,600MW) and IPP3 diesel power generation plant in Jordan (573MW).
In particular, KEPCO’s successful bid for gas combined-cycle power plant in Norte, Mexico (433MW) marks a great significance as it is KEPCO’s first-ever foothold in Latin America, which has traditionally been dominated by Japanese and Spanish power companies. In 2013, KEPCO further solidified its status in the global market by winning the international bid to build and operate Vietnam’s largest coal thermal power plant (1,200MW) in Nghi Son, Vietnam.
