Background

The Huaneng Liaocheng thermal power station originally began operating in 1990. However, many plants have been added in retired since then. In order to meet China's new national energy conservation and emission reduction policy, the operating company shut down its first two units ahead of schedule, on December 10, 2007. Units 3 and 4 were shut down on June 24, 2010. With four units still remaining in operation, the plant currently has an annual power generation of about 6 billion kWh and is the thermal plant with the largest heating capacity in Liaocheng. [1]In 2009, the power plant brought in 1.8 billion RMB in revenue.[1]

In 2014, the city of Liaocheng invested in a heating project that connected the Huaneng Liaocheng thermal plant and the Guodian Liaocheng thermal plant to the city, investing around 400 million RMB to build pipeline infrastructure that heats an additional 27 million square meters of urban area.[2]

Emissions and Pollution Control

All units of the company have installed and operated desulfurization systems. In 2009, two cooling water towers were added to the Huaneng Liaocheng thermal plant to save energy; from May to November 2009, after the units of cooling water towers were installed, the plant saved 4 million RMB in costs.[1]

Potential Expansion

Reportedly, the company intends to shut down units totaling around 600MW to construct another two 1000MW ultra-supercritical coal-fired generating units.[1] There have been no further updates on this specific expansion; however, in 2019, the Shandong Provincial Development and Reform Commission issued a notice approving the Huaneng Liaocheng 2×660MW ultra-supercritical coal-fired cogeneration project, suggesting that the previously planned units had been modified with lower capacities.[3]
