Korea Electric Power Corporation (Kepco) employees on Thursday inspect a power generator that is being built in Jordan. The Korean state-run power company is currently building the world’s largest diesel power plant in Al Manakher, which is 30 kilometers (18.6 miles) east of Amman. The plant is 94 percent complete. Once it is finished, in the third quarter of this year, it will generate 600 megawatts of power. The world’s current largest diesel power plant in Suape, Brazil, generates just 380 megawatts of power. Kepco has a 60 percent stake in the $800 million diesel internal combustion project, which is expected to provide $1.6 billion profit for the company over the next 25 years.[NEWSIS]
