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 power plant in which coal is burned to move generating turbines to produce electricity.

A good example of a thermal power plant is run that is coal fired.
emission are lower
a coal fired power plant.
An electricity generation station that is powered by burning the fossil fuel called "coal".
A coal-fired energy plant is one that burns coal (as the source of energy) to make electricity or drive machinery.
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
converts the rotation of the steam turbine shaft to electricity. same as in a coal fired plant.
