Background on Plant

China Huaneng is seeking permitting for 2 x 350 MW supercritical units in Ganjingzi District (Units 3-4) with two 50 MW back-pressure units (Units 1-2). The two 50 MW units were permitted for construction in 2015.[1]

As of July 2015 the two 50 MW back-pressured units are under construction. They were planned for commissioning in 2019.[2] They began operating in June 2020.[3]

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 in 13 provinces, including unit 4 of Huaneng Dalian-2. It is unclear when or if the projects will be revived.[4][5] (For details, see China's 2016 Restrictions on Development of Coal-Fired Power Capacity.)
