Background on Plant

Shaoxing Binhai power station began as a two-unit combined heat and power (CHP) coal-fired power plant with a total capacity of 600 MW in Zhejiang Province. The plant was completed in 2011, and is majority-owned by Zhejiang Provincial Energy Group.[1][2]

In 2015 Zhejiang Provincial Energy Group was permitted to add four 57 MW units to the power station.[3][4]

As of 2016 they are under construction and planned for operation in 2017.[5]

The first unit of the second phase (unit 3) was commissioned in April 2017.[6] Unit 4 was completed in July 2017,[7] and unit 5 in December 2017.[8] Unit 6 began operating in April 2018.[9]

Proposed expansion

In October 2017 plans were announced for a unit 7 of 57 MW.[10] It was permitted by the city in 2018, green-lighting the new unit for construction.[11]

In April 2020 the expansion of the plant was listed in the 2020 provincial construction plan. The expansion listed a unit 7 and unit 8 of 57 MW each.[12]

Unit 7 was commissioned in May 2021.[13]

As of January 2022, with no recent news about its development or permitting, Unit 8 was presumed shelved.
