The Wanyuan power station, an expansion of a previous power station, consists of two 300MW units, which were commissioned in 2007 and 2008. The total investment of the project was 2.6 billion RMB, with an annual electricity production of 2.6 billion kWh and an annual output value of 800 million RMB. The proposal for the plant was approved by the Sichuan Provincial Party Committee in June 2003, and was included in the "Tenth Five-Year Plan" of Sichuan's Electric Power Development department. Construction for the power plant began on July 18, 2006. Trials were completed on December 6, 2007 and the plant soon entered Sichuan's commercial operation system, setting a new record for the construction time of similar units in the southwest region. The second 300,000 kilowatt unit was completed on June 26, 2008. The facility, sponsored by Guodian Sichuan Power, has become a key producer for Dazhou and Sichuan's energy industry.
The plant is also equipped with desulfurization equipment.
