Background on Plant

The two existing coal-fired units of Beihai Bebuwan power station, totaling 640 MW, were brought online between 2004 and 2005.[1] The plant is owned by SDIC (55%), Guangxi Investment Group (27%), and National Energy Investment Group (18%).[2]

Ownership

The plant was owned by SDIC (55%), Guangxi Investment Group (27%), and National Energy Investment Group (18%). In November 2019, SDIC sold its 55% share to Guangxi Investment Group as part of SDIC's exit from coal, leaving the ownership shares as Guangxi Investment Group (82%) and National Energy Investment Group (18%).[3]

Description of Expansion

In 2012, the owners were planning to build two additional coal-fired units at this plant, with a total capacity of 1,320 MW.[4][5][6][7]

There were no further developments on the proposed units until May 2020, when the project was revived as 2 x 1,000 MW.[8]
