Fengzhen power station (华能北方联合电力丰镇发电厂) is an 800-megawatt (MW) coal-fired power plant in Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, China.
The map below shows the location of the plant, near Xinying, in Fengzhen City, Ulanqab (Wulanchabu) Prefecture, Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region. The Jinglong Fengzhen power station is located immediately to the east.
Background on Plant
Fengzhen power station is a four-unit coal-fired power plant with a total capacity of 800 MW. The first two units were retired in 2012. The currently operating units were completed between 1992 and 1995, and are majority-owned by China Huaneng.
Due to complaints from farmers that the plant was ruining their crops and toxins were leaching into groundwater, Hou Shier Quan residents near the plant were able to convince the local government to negotiate increased reparations from the company that owns the power plant: an additional 50 yuan per year for each farmer (roughly $7, or the cost of an average meal in Beijing).
