Background on Plant

The two existing coal-fired units of Huaneng Yakeshi Huiliuhe power station, totaling 100 MW, were brought online in 1993. The plant's first two units have been retired. The plant is owned by China Huaneng.[1]

Description of Expansion

Huaneng is seeking environmental clearance to expand the power station by two units, units 5 and 6, of 200 MW each.[2]

The units were permitted in 2014.[3][4]

Nationwide Restrictions Imposed on Development of Coal-Fired Power Capacity

In January 2017 China's National Energy Administration suspended over 100 planned and under-construction coal power projects with a total capacity of over 100GW in 13 provinces, including Huaneng Yakeshi Huiliuhe. It is unclear when or if the projects will be revived.[5]

For details, see China's 2016 Restrictions on Development of Coal-Fired Power Capacity.

Project revived

In September 2018, units 5 and 6 changed to a 350MW + 50MW project.[6] The units were again permitted for construction in April 2020.[7] Construction began in August 2020.[8]
