The first unit of the Liyan power station was commissioned in 1999, with an additional five units added between 1999 and 2004. It was sponsored by the local justice department. Currently, only Units 3 through 6 are still operating with a combined capacity of 580 MW; reportedly, the Lineng Group, who owns the power plant, would like to expand the plant to have an annual capacity of 1,360 MW; however, there have been no recent updates on this initiative.[2]

Emissions and Pollution Controls

According to an interview with one of the facility's operators, in the past, the power plant had an annual output of more than 70,000 tons of fly ash. To resolve this issue, the Lineng Group invested 28 million yuan to build an industry-grade storage and cement facility, which was completed in February 2002, which at the time, was one of Shandong's largest fly ash storage facilities. The facility is estimated to go through 140,000 tons of fly ash and 100,000 tons of coal gangue every year, and generate a revenue of 18.4 million RMB, as well as create 68 new jobs.[3]

The plant also has a sewage treatment facility that can process 5,000 tons of domestic sewage and wastewater per day.[4]
