The 255 billion-won ($212.4 million) power plant built at 20,000-square-meter site in Daesan petrochemical complex in South Chungcheong Province will deliver by-product hydrogen from Hanwha Total’s petrochemical plants via underground pipelines to generate 400,000 megawatt-hours of electricity to power 160,000 households every year.

A ceremony was held on Tuesday at the site to celebrate the construction. It was attended by Prime Minister Chung Sye-kyun, Vice Trade Minister Chung Seung-il and Hanwha Energy CEO Jung In-sub, among others.
