Background on Plant

The first 3 x 700 MW subcritical units of the plant were built in 2002 and 2003. They employed "a seawater scrubbing process for flue gas desulphurization".[2][3]

Unit 4

Unit 4 was expected to be the first ultra-supercritical coal plant in Southeast Asia. In 2012 the unit was under construction and scheduled for completion in 2015. It was planned to be 1,080 MW.[1]

Alstom reported that a 1,000 MW supercritical unit 4 was synchronized in September 2014,[4] although other reports are that when the plant entered operation later in April 2015, it was 1,080 MW and ultra-supercritical.[5][6]

The boiler for Unit 4 was manufactured in Wuhan Boiler Company, a Chinese manufacturing facility of which Alstom acquired a 51 per cent stake in 2007.[7]

Unit 5

A contract was signed in August 2013 for construction of Unit 5, which was expected to begin in January 2014 and be completed by October 2017.[8]

In May 2017 it was reported the plant was planned for commissioning in October 2017.[9]

Unit 5 was reported as operational in September 2017.[10]
