Background on Heating Supply Center power station

The Heating Supply Center power station consists of four 60 MW units and four 135 MW units, put into operation from 2010-2013.[1]

Shandong Weiqiao Group found to have built 45 coal-fired units without necessary permits

In August and September 2017, China's central government Environmental Protection Inspection Group 3 (中央第三环境保护督察组) spent a month in Shandong Province, to inspect the province's environmental protection work. In its final inspection report, the Group found that Shandong Weiqiao Group illegally built 45 coal power units in Shandong.[2]

In May 2018, the Shandong Provincial government responded to the inspection report with a plan to address the wrongdoings. According to the province, 33 of Weiqiao's 45 illegal coal power plants had since completed the necessary procedures to receive environment clearance and continue operating; 12 of the plants did not complete any procedures and should stop construction and operation immediately. Among the 12 units, 4 units should stop construction, and 8 units should stop operation, although they are not named.[3]

In November 2020 all eight units of the Binzhou Heating Supply Center power station appeared on a list ordered by the Shandong province to shut down in 2020.[4]
