Background

The first phase of construction for the Shanxi Zhaoguang power station consisted of two 300 MW units that were commissioned in 2005, with an initial investment of 2.54 billion RMB. Owned by Gemeng International, construction for the plant began in 2004. The second phase of the project included two additional 600MW units that were commissioned in 2009; together, all four units represented a total investment of 7.1 billion RMB. The total planned capacity for this plant is 3,000 MW. The third phase of the project, which has yet to be proposed or completed, will consist of another two 600 MW units.[1]

Emission control retrofits were completed by 2016 for all four units. The facility is equipped with desulfurization, denitrification, and dust removal facilities, and uses online flue gas monitoring technology.[2]

In 2016, the Shanxi Zhaoguang power station was fined two million RMB by the Huozhou municipal government after an onsite investigation revealed that the height of their coal-fired stack was higher than their wind-shield and dust-suppression nets.[3]

In 2021, Zhejiang Thermal Power was contracted for the daily maintenance and operation of all units from 2021-2023.[4]
