Background on Plant

Tianyuan Shandong power station was a two-unit coal-fired power plant with a total capacity of 600 MW in Shandong Province. The plant was completed in 2010-2011, and owned by Shandong Tianyuan Thermoelectric. Ten smaller units were retired from 2010 to 2014, although one may have been operating in 2016.[1][2][3]


An addition of 2 x 50 MW coal-fired back-up units was proposed.[4]

The project was illegally built and appeared to begin operating in 2016 or earlier. It was fined in 2016. In 2017, it was retroactively permitted.[5]
