A new 350 MW supercritical unit has been proposed. However, with no developments since 2016, the proposed unit appears to be cancelled.
2016: Nationwide Restrictions Imposed on Development of Coal-Fired Power Capacity
Due to new restrictions announced during 2016 by the National Energy Administration and the National Development and Reform Commission, further capacity expansions at this location appear to be on hold or cancelled.
