In a nutshell, it is not correct to assign human attributes (e.g., lifetimes) to inanimate objects. Consequently, the operating span of a coal fired power plant can be unlimited since any degraded or failed component can be replaced with a new one. Some of the oldest U.S. coal plants have operated since 1921. The decision on whether to make a refurbishment, or to build a new plant, is merely a question of relative Economics and investment risk. For example, the cost of a single replacement part is almost always less than the cost of replacing the plant. However, in an old plant, there is a risk that many additionally worn parts also will need replacement soon. Plant owners evaluate these tradeoffs each time a major component fails and make the decision whether or not to retire the plant.

a coal fired power plant.
An electricity generation station that is powered by burning the fossil fuel called "coal".
In a modern coal fired power plant the mechanical motion of turbines is transferred by a shaft to a generator, where magnets spin within wire coils to produce electricity
A coal-fired energy plant is one that burns coal (as the source of energy) to make electricity or drive machinery.
converts the rotation of the steam turbine shaft to electricity. same as in a coal fired plant.

The Manitowoc Power Plant is a coal fired plant. It was originally designed to burn stoker coal, but has implemented changes to lower harmful emissions and enable burning of cleaner forms of coal.
Have you ever heard of the Chernobyl power plant? A coal fired plant can't produce a disaster of that magnitude, and people worry about the potential consequences.

In a coal-fired power plant the coal is burned in boilers that produce superheated steam. The steam drives turbines, the turbines drive the generators. A conversion can be done to any other type of fuel that is available and it would involve replacing the boilers.

It can be up to 40 percent in modern plants, less in old ones
R. A Lewis has written: 'An investigation of the bioenvironmental effects of a coal-fired power plant'
The only waste from a nuclear power plant is spent fuel rods, which can be reprocessed. The waste from a coal fired plant is carbon dioxide, sulfur dioxide, mercury, ash, and soot.
According to Wikipedia's sources, the power plant in Palatka, Seminole Generating Station, is a coal burning power plant. It only appears to be nuclear because of the cooling towers that are iconic of nuclear power plants but can be used coal fired power plants. I would have to imagine that the blast from a coal power plant, if exploded, would not travel the 40 or so miles to Ocala.
Coal is burned in the firebox of the boiler to heat the water to steam which then turns the turbines which are connected to the generators which produce the electricity.
Coal is burnt to produce heat to make water boil. The steam drives a turbine which turns a generator to make electricity.
There are still quite a few coal fire power plants left in the UK, however it is declining. There are about 19 coal fired power plants which are still left in the UK.
A conventional plant costs about $780 million to build, according to Bechtel...a comparable coal-gas plant would cost about $975 million. source: http://money.cnn.com/2004/10/18/news/economy/coal/
They are usually near water as they burn coal to heat water to make steam to generate electricity. Also in some cases, it is easier to deliver coal to the plant by water than by road or railroad.
Single nuclear PWR units can now range up to 1600 MWe output, so I think that is comparable with any single coal fired unit
