The average lifespan of a thermal power plant is, in general, 30 years. When this period elapses, its lifespan is extended through functional improvement work or the plant is decommissioned. Since its founding, KOMIPO has been creating future growth engines through construction of new power plants, including combined cycle, pumped storage, internal combustion, CHP (Combined Heat & Power), small hydropower, wind power, PV, etc.

With construction commenced in the Songak-do area, Jugyo-myeon, Boryeong City, Chungnam Province, in November 2011, Shin-Boryeong TPP Plant, with a total capacity of 2,000MW (1,000MW x 2 units), is an ultra-supercritical (USC) bituminous coal-fired thermal power plant. Construction of the plant, the first and the largest-scale among domestic thermal power plants, is a verification project for localization of a 1,000MW USC power generation facility boasting the world's top functions, which is scheduled for completion in June 2017.

The Seoul TPP, which was the first-ever thermal power plant in Korea, is preparing another grand transformation. An 800MW-class large-scale combined cycle power plant is being built underground in an urban center for the first time in the world. On the ground above the plant, a city regeneration park linked to the Han riverside will be constructed to become a resting place for citizens. Also, the existing Seoul TPP #4 & #5 building is planned for rebirth into a 'Culture Creation Power Plant,' a hub-center for culture and arts utilizing industrial heritage after rent-free leasing it to the Ministry of Culture, Sports & Tourism. Of particular note, in June 2016, the 'Underground Generation Facility' was featured at the Korea Invention Patent Exhibition organized by the Korea Intellectual Property Office (KIPO) and was honored with the Silver Prize.

With construction commenced in the Maryang-ri area, Seo-myeon, Seocheon-gun, Chungnam Province in November 2015, Shin-Seocheon TPP is a bituminous coal-fired USC thermal power plant having a total capacity of 1,000MW. Designed to overcome the end of lifespan of the existing Seocheon TPP and weakening competitiveness caused by the use of low-calorie anthracite coal, this power plant is expected to contribute to the stable supply of electric power owing to introduction of the latest eco-friendly facilities. It is scheduled for completion in September 2019.

The Jeju Power Generation Site Division is building a 240MW-scale LNG combined cycle power plant, the first one on Jeju Island, where power plants have been operated with heavy oil and light oil since LNG supply to the province have thus far been impossible. With construction commenced in 2016, this power plant, when completed in June 2018, is expected to contribute significantly to enhancing the self-reliance level of the Jeju region and realizing the envisioned carbon-free island.
