Background on Plant
The four existing coal-fired units of Shenhua Hequ power station, totaling 2,400 MW, were brought online between 2004 and 2011. The plant is owned by Shanxi Luneng Hequ Electricity Generation Co.
Description of Expansion
Shanxi Luneng Hequ Electricity Generation Co is planning to build two additional coal-fired units at this plant, units 5-6, with a total planned capacity of 1,320 MW. The units are scheduled to be completed in 2017.
Nationwide Restrictions Imposed on Development of Coal-Fired Power Capacity
In January 2017 China's National Energy Administration suspended over 100 planned and under-construction coal power projects with a total capacity of over 100GW in 13 provinces, including units 5-6 of Shenhua Hequ. It is unclear when or if the projects will be revived.
