Background on Plant

The two existing coal-fired units of Diandong Yuwang power station, totaling 1,200 MW, were brought online between 2009 and 2010. The plant is owned by China Huaneng.[1]

Description of Expansion

As of 2012, Huaneng was planning to build two additional coal-fired units at this plant, with a total planned capacity of 1,200 MW.[2]

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

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

With no developments since 2012, plans for units 3-4 appear were presumed abandoned.

2021: New proposal

In 2021, two 1,000 units were proposed in the 14th Five-Year Plan of Yunnan Province.[3]
