Background

Baoding cogen power station was founded in 1958. The first two units were commissioned in 1960 and units 6-7 in 1988. All seven units were retired between 2007 and 2008.[3] It is owned by China Datang.[4]

Units 8 and 9 were built in 2003. They were also called Baoding Huayuan Power Company. Units 10 and 11 were completed in 2008 and in a different location from other units. The four units, units 8-11, were all co-generating, supplying heat in the winter to the city of Baoding.[5]

Units 8 and 9 were retired in 2018 due to the bankruptcy of Baoding Huayuan Power Company after it failed to pay out billions of yuan in debt.[6]

Expansion

China Datang proposed to expand the power station by 2 x 350 MW units. One of the units (Unit 12) was permitted for construction by China's NRDC in December 2016, before its EIA was approved by the provincial environmental protection agency.[7][8] China Datang was planning to retire units 8 and 9 with a total capacity of 250 MW when the new unit was commissioned.[8]

Unit 13 was permitted for construction on May 31, 2019.[9] Units 12 and 13 were expected to be built next to units 10 and 11.

Based on a 2021 governmental document, the project may have been tasked with re-applying for approval of its energy-saving plan and coal consumption replacement plan due to the delay in entering construction. However, the company appeared to decide to move forward with building the units regardless.[10]

One article noted construction on the 2 x 350 MW expansion began in February 2022.[11] From satellite imagery, there were some signs of construction, including signs of a cooling tower and smoke stacks.
