Huadian Laizhou power station
|This article is part of the CoalSwarm coverage of China and coal|
Huadian Laizhou power station (华电国际莱州发电公司二期) is a 4,078-megawatt (MW) coal-fired power plant in Shandong Province, China.
The undated satellite photo below shows the plant in Yantai Prefecture, Shandong Province.
Background on Plant
Description of Expansion
Huadian is currently planning to build two additional coal-fired units at this plant, with a total planned capacity of 2,000 MW. The company hopes to have the units approved and under construction by the end of 2014. The two units were permitted in 2015. Construction began in 2016.
Nationwide Restrictions Imposed on Development of Coal-Fired Power Capacity
In January 2017 China's National Energy Administration proposed for suspension over 100 planned and under-construction coal power projects in 13 provinces, including Huadian Laizhou. The NEA proposed the projects included be postponed to the 14th Five Year period (2021-2025).
For details, see China's 2016 Restrictions on Development of Coal-Fired Power Capacity.
Based on Planet satellite data from August 2017 to November 2018 construction has continued on the power station. A January 2018 news article confirmed construction was ongoing, with operation planned for 2019. This appears to violate NEA Electricity  275, which suspended construction that began in 2016 or later in all provinces that have a red light under the traffic light system, which includes Shandong.
Unit 3 was commissioned in August 2019.
Unit 4 was commissioned in November 2019.
