Background on Project

China Resources Power and Fujian Energy Group have proposed a power station of four 660 MW units in Liuzhi District.[1]

The power plant was protested by local residents for its pollution and noise, due to its close location to villages. The complaints were suppressed by local government officials.[2]

Units 1-2

The first two units received environmental clearance in March 2014.[3] In December 2014 the two units were reported as under construction and planned for operation in 2016.[4]

Unit 1 was commissioned in August 2016.[5] Unit 2 completed testing in October 2016.[6][7]

Units 3-4

2016: Nationwide Restrictions Imposed on Development of Coal-Fired Power Capacity

Due to new restrictions announced during 2016 by the National Energy Administration and the National Development and Reform Commission, further capacity expansions at this location appear to be on hold or cancelled. For details, see China's 2016 Restrictions on Development of Coal-Fired Power Capacity.

With no developments on the proposed units 3-4 since they were proposed in 2014, they are likely cancelled.
