Background on Plant

Units 1-7 of Huaibei power station, totaling 950 MW, were brought online between 1973 and 1993 and were retired from 2007-2008. The 210 MW Unit 8 is a subcritical unit that was commissioned in 2005. The plant is owned by China Datang.[1]


To meet the requirement of "Suspension of smaller units to build bigger ones" policy, Datang Huaibei Power Station shut down its 1-7 subcritical units in 2007.[2] Unit 8 was retired in 2020.[3]
