Nong Shim Foods is the Rancho Cucamonga, California division of Nong Shim Co Ltd, a $1.6bn food manufacturer based in Seoul, South Korea. The company holds 31% of the savoury snack market in Korea and 72% of the instant noodle market (its main business). The US is the largest consumer of Ramen (instant noodles) outside Asia and Nong Shim wanted to capitalise on its expertise and success in the Korean market by making an impact in the US. To do this the company instigated the construction of a noodle production plant in California on a 13 acre Greenfield site. The site contains the Nong Shim corporate headquarters, manufacturing and distribution facility. With the Rancho Cucamonga project, Nong Shim invested an estimated $75m in the construction and outfitting of the 268,000ft² plant, in the belief that American food culture will respond to value-added ingredients in a commodity category.
A power station (also referred to as a generating station , power plant , powerhouse or generating plant ) is an industrial facility for the generation of electric power . [ 1 ] [ 2 ] [ 3 ] At the center of nearly all power stations is a generator , a rotating machine that converts mechanical power into electrical power by creating relative motion between a magnetic field and a conductor . The energy source harnessed to turn the generator varies widely. It depends chiefly on which fuels are easily available, cheap enough and on the types of technology that the power company has access to. Most power stations in the world burn fossil fuels such as coal , oil , and natural gas to generate electricity, and some use nuclear power , but there is an increasing use of cleaner renewable sources such as solar , wind , wave and hydroelectric .
