By 2024, POSCO Energy of South Korea will have constructed a new coal-fired power station with two 1050 MW generating units, in Samcheok in the north-east of the country. SCHADE Lagertechnik GmbH of Gelsenkirchen/Germany will supply four Semi-Portal Reclaimers to Doosan Engineering & Construction for the project.

The four identical machines ordered have a reclaim capacity of 1500 t/h each, and their rail span is 57 m. The overall storage capacity at Samcheok is for 700 000 t of bituminous and sub-bituminous coals. Supply of the SCHADE Semi-Portal Reclaimers will start in early 2021 and continue in successive stages until October. Installation is planned for 2022 and the test run for 2023. Before the Reclaimers are shipped to South Korea, Doosan Engineering & Construction will carry out extensive acceptance procedures at the SCHADE production facilities, including intensive tests on the machinery components.
