Background on Plant

Huadian Wangting power station began as a six-unit coal-fired power plant in Jiangsu Province. As shown in Google Earth's "time machine" feature, two units (Units 1-2) were demolished between 2007 and 2009. Units 3-4, totaling 660 MW, were completed between 1989 and 1996. Units 5-6, totaling 1,320 MW, were completed in 2009-2010. The plant is owned by China Huadian.[1]

The generation license for unit 3 (330 MW) was cancelled in October 2019, forcing the unit into retirement.[2] Unit 4 (330 MW) was retired in 2020.[3]
