Replacement unit

In 2016 Anshan Iron & Steel Group announced plans to shut down its three units (345 MW total) and replace them with one 350 MW supercritical unit, Unit 4.[2] Units 1&2 were retired in 2020.

With no developments on the proposed Unit 4 since 2016, plans for the unit appear to be cancelled.
