South Korea’s state-run power company, the Korea Electric Power Corporation (KEPCO), has awarded a $100 million contract to GE’s Grid Solutions business through KEPCO-Alstom Power Electronics Systems – a joint venture (JV) of GE Power (previously Alstom Grid) and KEPCO. The contract has been awarded to complete the second and final phase of the existing 33 km long, Buk Dangjin-Godeok high voltage direct current (HVDC) link. The Buk Dangjin-Godeok HVDC will connect the power complex located east of South Korea to Seoul’s metropolitan area, which accounts for around 40 per cent of the Korean energy demand.
