The Dong-gu hydrogen fuel cell power plant project began back inJune 2017 when the Incheon Metropolitan City Government, Dong-gu Office, KHNP,Doosan, Samchully, and Incheon Total Energy signed a memorandum ofunderstanding. Construction, however, was suspended in January 2019 due toongoing conflicts with local residents regarding the safety of the power plant.

 

To address this issue, the Incheon Metropolitan City Governmenthelped the public emergency operational committee, Dong-gu Office, and privatesector participants create a consultative group tasked with finding acompromise between the different stakeholders involved in the project.Fortunately, these reconciliation efforts proved effective, and constructionresumed in November 2019.
