Background on Plant

The plant went into operation in 2000.[1]

Proposed 135-MW unit?

In May 2016, a second 135-MW unit was listed as being in the planning stage as part of a stranded assets report by the University of Oxford.[2] The source was unclear. In addition, S&P Global's resources listed a proposed and then cancelled 135 MW unit (at a Location ID with no operating unit).

One known document identified Toyohashi Akemi's plans for a 135 MW, but said the plan was for unit 1, not a second unit. It planned to start operation in April 2000. Given that unit 1 started operation in April 2000, it seemed unlikely that a second unit was ever proposed at the site.[3]

As of May 2020, there were no further news about this second unit, so if it was in fact proposed, it appeared to be cancelled.
