Background on Project

According to the Fujian Provincial Development and Reform Commission (August 2015), Quanhui was a proposed 2 x 600 MW industrial CHP power station for the province, with a 15 MW back pressure unit.[1] According to an earlier Fujian power announcement (May 2015), the power station would consist of two 660 MW ultra-supercritical units. The power station would be used to support Quanzhou chemical and petrochemical projects.[2]

Unit 1 (660 MW) and the 15 MW back-up unit were permitted for construction in March 2016.[3]

In February 2018, it was announced that construction on unit 1 and unit 3 was postponed.[4]

With no developments on unit 2 since the project feasibility study in 2015, plans appeared to be abandoned.

However, in April 2022, reports indicated new activities on the proposed project (Google Translate: "In order to better and faster promote the process of the 2×660MW ultra-supercritical cogeneration project in the Quanhui Petrochemical Industrial Zone, it is planned to entrust a consulting research institution to carry out research on the construction and development of the cogeneration project based on the 'dual carbon' background.")[5]

The Fujian Provincial Development and Reform Commission also appeared to re-issue an approval for unit 2 in June 2022.[6]

The status of the previously permitted unit 1 was uncertain, but the unit was presumed still permitted.
