Background on Plant

Huadian Shijiazhuang Cogen power station was founded in 1954. It has been expanded in 8 phases of 22 coal-fired units total. Only five units of the power station are still operating: units 12-14 totaling 75 MW and units 21-22 totaling 400 MW. The five units were brought online in 2003. Units 15 and 16, with a total capacity of 150MW, were retired in 2014. The plant is owned by China Huadian, and supplies heat in winter to the city of Shijiazhuang.[1][2]

Since the power station is located in the central area of Shijiazhuang, the capital of Hebei Province, it has been blamed for its contribution to the city's severe air pollution. To meet the goal of reducing the smog in winter and improve the air quality over all, the 9th phase with two gas-fired cogeneration units is under construction, and is planned for commissioning in 2018.[3]
