Background

The Xi'an Xijiao power station provides electricity and heating to the city of Xi'an in China, covering around 30 million square meters of area.[1] The power plant has two 25 MW units from the 1980s (Units 1 and 2; seemingly retired since no information about their operation can be found) and two 50 MW units (Units 3 and 4, commissioned in 2002-2003). The plant has an annual power generation of 3.8 billion kilowatt-hours.

In 2011, the Guodian Shaanxi Power Company planned an expansion to this plant, hoping to add two 350 MW supercritical units. The project had a total planned investment of 2.66 billion RMB.[2][3] The project underwent an environmental impact assessment in 2013; however, it appears this planned expansion has fallen through, as there has been no news since then.[4]

In early 2021, the Xi'an municipality announced their goal of phasing out all coal by 2025.[5] It appears that the Xi'an Xijiao power station is on the list of coal plants that will be influenced by this target, but the details remain unclear.

In March 2021, it was also announced that the Xi'an Xijiao power station would be one of the plants being relocated out of the Xi'an city to reduce air pollution in the residential areas. Relocation work may start as early as November 30; however, there is also a possibility that the plant will be retired as well.[1]
