Background

The Hwa Ya Power Corporation is an affiliate of the Formosa Plastics Group[2] and commissioned the two-unit, 300 MW coal-fired power station in 2004 with various pollution controls.[1]

The plant appears to supply heat and power to the company's chemical facility and nearby factories, and to other nearby companies. Certain sources reference capacities smaller than 300 MW.[3][4]

In 2011, the company had to pay over 609 million RMB in fines for air pollution. An investigation was underway to determine if fraud in reporting emission levels occurred.[5]

The Hwa Ya group also invested another 1.5 billion RMB to build another steam plant near this one.[6]
